FREEMAN, Duane Thomas, age 78, of Langley, BC passed away Monday, October 28, 2019. He was a graduate of Sedgewick High School and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. He had a long career with McGavin Foods, starting as a mechanic in Edmonton working his way up to Corporate Fleet manager in Langley, BC. He finished his career with UHaul and then started to enjoy retirement.
He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. He enjoyed camping with his wife in their RV throughout Canada and the United States and spending time with friends and family, especially his grandchildren. He had a love for animals, antique farm equipment, old cars and the mountains. He was born in the mountains, made every opportunity be near them and even collected artwork of his favorite ones. Throughout his life, Duane enjoyed donating his skills in mechanics to help others and he loved the challenge of figuring out how to fix things. He was a former Cub Scout leader and in retirement, was an active member of the Orcas and Peace Arch chapters of the Good Sam’s Club.
Preceded in death by his parents Arthur Eldridge Freeman and Gwendolyn Freeman (nee Jones).
