RYAN FREEL
FUNERAL HOME
Hardage-Giddens Funeral Home
4115 Hendricks Ave
Jacksonville, FL
FREEL Please Sign the Guestbook @ Jacksonville.com Ryan Freel left us December 21, 2012 at the age of 36. He is survived by three beautiful daughters, Ava, Alex and Aliana Freel. The children s mother Christie Freel, his mom and dad Norma and Clark Vargas, his father Pat Freel, brother Patrick Freel, his grandparents Oscar and Zenaida Rodriguez, nephew Ethan Freel, niece Ellie Freel, a large extended family and numerous friends that love him unconditionally. Ryan Paul Freel was born March 8, 1976 in Jacksonville, FL. He attended Sacred Heart elementary, Sandalwood high school, and graduated from Englewood High School. Ryan attended Tallahassee Community College. Ryan was raised by Norma Vargas his Cuban-American mother who, being hard working, worked 16 hours a day as a teacher and also had a house cleaning business in Jacksonville. He credited her for his perseverance, integrity and gritty, all-out style of play. Ryan also always loved a joke and had a goofy side. In 1995, he was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 10th round of the 1995 amateur draft. Ryan played 6 seasons in the Toronto minor league system before making his Major League debut on April 4, 2001. On November 18, 2002, he signed with the Cincinnati Reds. In five seasons with the Reds, Ryan hit .270 with 22 home runs, 104 runs batted in, and 134 stolen bases. His best season for the Reds was in 2004, when he hit .277 with 3 home runs, 28 RBI, 37 stolen bases, and 74 runs scored in 143 games. He played second base, third base and the outfield; and was known for his hustle and reckless style of play. During his tenure with Cincinnati, Ryan became the face of Cincinnati s signature outreach program, the Reds Rookie Success League . Initially, it was hard to recruit players to visit the program due to a fear that it might be awkward for some and inconvenient for others. Ryan provided the Cincinnati Organization with their biggest breakthrough in that regard, taking upon himself to make numerous visits each summer to more than 1,500 kids and volunteer coaches. His involvement included financial support, participation in sponsor activities, photo shoots and media access. Regardless of the role, Ryan always made certain that the kids came first and that he was helping to enhance the program. His presence, caring and enthusiasm lifted the Cincinnati program to new heights. Ryan sustained as many as 10 concussions and several injuries during his major-league career. He sat out 30 games during the 2007 season after suffering a concussion in an outfield collision with a teammate; an injury which led Ryan to be taken off the field in an ambulance. On December 2008, Ryan was traded to the Baltimore Orioles. May 2009, he was traded to the Chicago Cubs. On July, 2009, he was traded to the Kansas City Royals. He was a guy who was always all in, the way he tried very hard and hustled like he did, Ryan s former agent stated. He played all out and he lived that way too. During an eight-year major-league career, Ryan enjoyed a reputation among teammates as high-energy, outgoing and hilarious. In April 2010, Ryan signed with the independent Somerset Patriots.[3] In May 2010, Ryan decided to retire to focus on his two main passions, his 3 little daughters and his love of youth and young prospective ball players. Ryan returned to his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. His enjoyment of his experience with the Cincinnati Reds Rookie Success League lead Ryan to found and run the organization called Big League Development, Inc. as President and CEO. As well as developing the organization and running it as president, he took the time to manage and coach two traveling teams as the head coach. When the sun paints the sky in the west, stand a few moments and remember him only at his best. Please direct all memorial donations to Big League Development Inc, a 5013c Corporation; 8808 Arlington Expressway, Jacksonville, FL 32211 to provide scholarships for under privileged youth baseball hopefuls. A visitation will be held Wednesday, December 26, 2012 from 5-8pm at Hardage-Giddens The Oaklawn Chapel 4801 San Jose Blvd, Jacksonville FL. 32207.

Every Christmas I think of you Ryan. I think of all the joy you brought me as a Reds fan, I remember the time you called my girlfriend from my phone to thank her for being a fan (she had a HUGE crush on you!). And I am thankful I knew you, albeit as a fan in the stands. Rest easy, and peace unto your family.

I enjoyed watching Ryan Freel's all out play so much that when I purchased a Red's jersey I chose his name for the back. I could've done like so many others at that time and had Griffey on the back but I wanted Freel. He demonstrated how to not only play the game of baseball but how to live life. Give 110% or go home. I coach little league baseball and have passed that on to them. Thanks for the lesson Ryan.

I am adding this message long after Ryan's passing in order to express my condolences to his family and in the hope what I write will be forward ed to them. My small collection of Ryan memorabilia consists of a nice salection of cards from Ryan's early career AND the Reds wind shirt Ryan wore when he played in Cincinnati. If Ryan's family would like to have these items free I would be glad to ship them to Florida directly to the family or in care of the funeral home. [email protected]

I will miss those kind, haunting blue eyes that always held a mischievous little twinkle. Ryan loved baseball with an over the top compassion that was second only to his lovely three daughters. His zest for life and love for his family, especially, his mother, was profound and contagious to be associated with. Ryan always made everyone feel comfortable and accepted to be around. Ryan was amusing and more often than not made me laugh. He was never too busy to help others, even visiting my father in the hospital signing a bat for him and many autographs for the doctors and nurses who attended him. During our "Real Men Read" project, Ryan came to our school and read to our students instilling in them not only the importance of reading, but also of being disciplined and always doing their absolute best. Even though the immense hurt Ryan's early departure has left us all with, he has also left us with many memories of amazing plays, amusing anecdotes and what an absolutely loving and devoted father and giving individual he was. May God provide strength and comfort to his family.
January 6, 2013
My deepest sympathy to the family of Ryan. Loss of a child is always a tragedy and difficult to understand and accept. I was a classmate (1962) of his father Pat and also lost one of my sons this past year. I could tell that Ryan's family was proud of his accomplishments through Pat's postings on classmates. Ryan and his family will be in my prayers throughout these difficult times.

I would like to wish the Freel Family our Prayers and Condolences. Pat Freel was a resident of ours and would visit the rental office, and we saw how proud he was of his sons and what a lucky father he was. We felt that the boys would play sports and enjoy them as much as their father did. This occurred back in the 1981 era. I know that the family feels as if their hearts will never heal from Ryan's sudden death. I pray that time will help the healing process, but I also believe that when we lose someone, we hold on to a special place in our hearts that we always held them in and will always keep for them. Over time you will find that memories of Ryan, will make you smile and cry. But Ryan will not be forgotten due to them. May God Bless your family, and help you through this difficult time.

Ms. Norma, Mr. Pat, Patrick and the Freel family. I haven't seen any of you in years but my dad, Ralph, always would talk about your family when he had info or talked to Mr. Pat.

Ryan was so exciting to watch play the game of baseball. I loved his hustle. There was no ball that couldn't be caught in his mind, no base that couldn't be stolen!!! You were one of my all time favorites Ryan. May God grant your family peace.

Today a little piece of my heart was laid to rest. Ryan you had my heart from the first time I met you. We have laughed, cried, joked, smiled and had good times and bad times together. I would never go back and change any of it. You taught me how to live my life for today and not look back at yesterday, to have hope for tomorrow and to NEVER SAY NEVER!. I am truly blessed to have had you in my life. You were an amzing friend that will remain near and dear to my heart. Thank you for the amazing memories you hve given me. I will cherish them forever. One of my fondest memories is when the you and the girls came to visit me at work and we played dress up and played like we were manneuines in the window. We had the best time acting like we were little kids just like the girls. My heart goes out to your mom, Clark and the girls. You were such an amazing father and your eyes just lit up any time you were with them. I am truly blessed to have been introduced to them and have such an amazing friendship with your mom now as a result. Thank you for that. You will never be forgotten Ryan Freel. I look forward to the day that we will all see you again in Heaven. You will always have a special place in my heart!

I have a very heavy heart after attending the visitation for Ryan this evening. Ryan touched so many lives and meant so much to my family, "The Sams". My fondest memory of Ryan is leaving the keys to my car in my locker during school hours so him and my cousin, Kevin could take my car off campus. :) My heart breaks for his three beautiful girls which I had the honor to meet this evening. Rest in peace my friend. You will truly be missed.

Words cannot express the sorrow my husband and I feel for Ryan and his family. He was a favorite when he played for the Reds and all of our grandchildren own a t-shirt with Freel on the back of it. We will remember him as a wonderful baseball player that was genuine to his fans. I will treasure the picture I had taken with him at Reds fest and how sweet and polite he was with me by signing that picture. Our prayers are with you Christine,Ava Alex and Aliana. Hold your most precious memories close to your hearts forever.

You were always giving and full of energy. You called my son the Little Ryan Freel, offerred him free instruction. Honored to have known you and our prayers are with you and yours. None of us will ever forget you and my boy said he will honor you by playing every sport like you till his last game.

When we first moved in two doors down from the Freels, Ryan knocked on our door and asked if Luke, my then 7 year old son could pass the baseball, that was 9 years ago... He has been a friend ever since... I will miss you till I see you in Heaven...
