Ronald “Ron” C. Freeman was a man of sharp wit and intellectual curiosity. Born to a humble and proud family in Lexington, Kentucky in 1946, Ron used his intelligence to craft a remarkable life for himself and later, his family. Ron graduated from several institutions of higher learning and worked as both an engineer and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Ron never stopped learning and enjoyed many hobbies over the years including, but certainly not limited to stained glass, model trains, airplanes, mini-computers, and banjo.
Ron was a fighter - stubborn, uncompromising, and the true embodiment of the American Dream. Proud of his accomplishments, Ron often remarked: "It is good to be the king." Ron felt fortunate to retire and live out his days surrounded by his children and grandchildren while maintaining homes in both Illinois and Florida.
Ron is survived by his loving wife, Sharon Freeman (Downers Grove, Illinois); and devoted children, daughter, Stacy Freeman (Eric Olson)(Chicago, Illinois), and son, Steven (Jennifer) Freeman (Ponte Vedra, Florida); as well as his precious grandchildren, Charlie and Kathrine Freeman.
