FREEMAN--Dr. Morris,

95, died peacefully at home in Mt. Kisco Thursday October 5. Born April 10, 1922 in Chotin, Romania; emigrated to the U.S. with his parents in 1928. Raised in Brooklyn; graduated NYU and Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, then served in the Navy in World War II as a dentist on transport ships in the Far East. Upon returning he graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. For over 40 years he practiced internal medicine and oncology in the Bronx and was attending physician at Montefiore Medical Center. He practiced with unwavering passion, and was the consummate "old school physician." His intellect, warmth, humor and penchant for storytelling endeared him to countless lifelong friends, patients and colleagues. He is survived by his loving wife Violet, children Risa (Robert Bradley) and Neil (Linda Aboody) and grandchildren Jason, Natasha and Jeremy. Funeral services: October 8, 11:30am, Plaza Jewish Community Chapel, NYC.
