Mr. Czarr David Daniel Freeman, Sr.

It is with deep sadness and regret that the Freeman Family announces the Home Going of our beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and uncle – Mr. Czarr David Daniel Freeman, Sr. – also affectionately known as 'Daddy' to his children, 'Big Daddy' to his grandchildren, 'Brother' to his siblings and 'Bor. Free' (Brother Free), to his students and countless others. This sad event occurred after a long illness on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 2:45 pm in Snellville, GA, USA.

Mr. Czarr David Daniel Freeman was born October 15, 1928 in Yastar, Rivercess County, Liberia. During his early years, he moved to Monrovia, Liberia and attended the College of West Africa (CWA), after which he matriculated to the University of Liberia where he obtained his undergraduate degree. He served in the Liberia National Police and also the YMCA in Monrovia, Liberia. Subsequently in the early 1960s, he was assigned to Harper City, Cape Palmas, Liberia as Executive Secretary of the YMCA. Shortly afterwards in Harper City, he met, fell in love with and married the lovely Ms. Janet R. Thomson (Jane) who became his life-long and devoted partner; but sadly predeceased him in early 2002. During their lifetime they raised a large family of immediate and extended children. C. David D. Freeman was an ardent and lifelong Episcopalian, devoted husband and family man, athletic and well-liked teacher at Bishop Ferguson Episcopal High School in Harper City. He loved young people and found joy in sharing his knowledge and experiences teaching them.

He is survived by his children – Eric M. Freeman (Grace), Marietta G. Freeman, Mera Freeman-Johnson (Wesley), Czarr D. Freeman Jr. (Nancy), Marmonie Freeman, Wheimar Freeman-Kwiah (Josephus), Davidetta Freeman-Gardiner (Richlieu); twenty grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; siblings - Nancy Cobilar Freeman, Etta Jyaito Freeman-Cole and one brother-in-law – Alonzo Thomson. Predeceasing him are his first grandchild – Victor Freeman and his siblings – Banweh Freeman-Brown (sister), Barmen Freeman (brother), Morris Freeman (brother) Peesoe Freeman (sister) and Nellie Freeman (foster Sister).

He also leaves to mourn his passing Wheaton Thomson, Florence Thomson Sirleaf, Samuel Blankson, Amma Scott, Alice Atta and many other extended children.

His beloved wife, Jane is now reunited with her adoring 'DD' in eternal bliss. May their souls rest in perpetual peace.
