Spanish Fort, AL
Harry Earl Freeman, 64, born in Fairhope, AL and longtime resident of Spanish Fort, passed away, Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at his mountain home in Hardy, Arkansas. He loved being on the water so much, that he left home to work on a tugboat for many years and later became a captain. He also served as a Merchant Mariner for over 40 years. Harry enjoyed life to the fullest. He loved riding his Harley and hanging with his family and friends. His kind heart always found the good in people. When he encountered someone with a need, he would find a way to meet it. Harry’s family meant the world to him and spending time with them was always something he looked forward to. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him and hearing him speak his favorite saying, “Be good or be good at it!” He is predeceased by his parents, Oliver Floyd Freeman, Sr. and Ruth Lee Freeman and his brothers, Robert Freeman, Hugh Freeman, Oliver Freeman, Jr. and Jimmy Freeman.
Surviving are his sons, Daniel Freeman, Spanish Fort and Ki Freeman, Baldwin County; his daughter, Kimberly Kinsey, Spanish Fort; his brothers, Glen Freeman and Russell Gene Freeman; his beloved grandchildren, Christopher J.
