Beloved husband of nearly 67 years of Harriett (Bresoff) Freedman. Cherished father to Dr. Suzanne Rivkin and Dr. Nancy (Dr. Gary) Klein.

Loving brother of Natalie (the late Donald) Canvasser and the late Lewis (the late Marian) Freedman. Dear brother-in-law of Barbara (Erwin) Gutenberg and the late Marvin (Betty) Bresoff. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Mr. Freedman's generosity and philanthropic nature led him and his wife to support many organizations and entities in their communities. Their generous contributions to Temple Israel included the beautiful outdoor sculpture garden. Mr. Freedman also supported Mogen David Adom, and in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary, he and his wife donated an ambulance for Israel. His and his wife's other longtime contributions included the Pinkerton School for the Blind, the Jewish Federation, B’Nai Brith, the Bais Chabad of West Bloomfield, among many others. He was a Mason, a 33 Degree Mason, and lifelong member of the Craftsman Lodge. He had a zest for life that he passed on to his daughters and family. Loved by so many, his smile and generosity will truly be missed.
