William L. Freed, age 79 passed away on November 14, 2019 at 5:44 p.m. at Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, OH.
William was born in Rockingham County, Virginia to William and Mildred Freed, both of whom preceded him in death. On June 25, 1959 he married Tressia Mae Miller who preceded him in death on August 17, 2000.
William lived life to the fullest. He worked for many years as an educator at Apollo and was a member of Free Will Baptist Church. He enjoyed being in nature, especially when he was fishing and hunting. He was passionate about firearms and was known for his gun collection. He was a grand storyteller; famous for his tall tales. William loved the Music of Roy Orbison, playing the banjo, and watching westerns with those that he cherished. Ultimately, these loved ones were the greatest joy of William’s life. There was nothing he enjoyed more than being with his family. He will be sorely missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know him.
