   Freeman, Walter Jesse

Walter Jesse Freeman, son of the late Leonard and Harriet Freeman, was born September 7, 1928 in Newburgh New York. He died on April 13, 1994 after an illness of 40 years' duration. Walter received his education in the Newburgh public schools. During his high school years, he and his brother, Leonard along with two high school friends, formed the Nathaniel Dett Quartet and sang sprituals. He was a dedicated scholar and ended his high school career winning the top awards in every subject area, as well as the top athletic awards. Walt was the first Black student to be enrolled in Ithaca College, New York, but he only attended one semester. At that time, there were no living accommodations for Blacks. After leaving Ithaca, he entered the then Morgan State College in 1950, where he distinguished himself scholastically. At graduation, Walt was a member of Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society and the Scientific Honor Society. He was elected to appear in who's Who of American Colleges. Walt also received a plaque for the highest average in physical education, health and recreation. In addition, he held a commission in the U.S. Army. On 1953, Walt married the former Charlotte Elizabeth Hall of Baltimore, Maryland. From this union, three children were born Mrs. Karen F. Burdnell and Mrs. Diane F. Wilson of Baltimore, and Walter Jerome Freeman of Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Walt was employed as Physical Director at the Druid Hill Branch YMCA. His greatest joy was promoting the basketball games between his hometown of Newburgh and the young men and women of the Druid Hill branch. The crippling effects of multiple Sclerosis overcame his determination and strength and Walt had to retire due to disability in 1967. A devoted father, husband, and churchman, Walt sang in the choir at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church until he could no longer walk. His last twelve years were spent under the excellent care of the Keswick Nursing Home staff. While there, he was ministered to by the priest, Reverend Noreen Suriner, and the people of Christ the King Episcopal Church, where his family now attends. He leaves to mourn; his wife and three children, Charlotte, Karen, Diane and Walter; his sister, and brother, Mrs. Mildred Penfield of Newburgh New York and Leonard Freeman of New York City; seven grandchildren, Thea and Jacqueline Burdnell, Cedric and Dexter Wilson and Ayla, Ashley and Brian Freeman.

Freeman. In addition he is mourned by four nieces, five nephews, five great nephews, a host of other relatives and friends.

WALTER FREEMAN DAY SET -  Walter Freeman Day will be marked during the halftime of the Mt. Vernon-NFA football game Saturday at the NFA Field.

Posted by Donna Schoonmaker (Dorsey) Cl-74     I am Jack Schoonmaker's 2nd eldest daughter. Sadly I will also be emailing about 3 of my siblings who passed.......... Dad, called Jack...  and also called Jake by his work (Central Hudson Gas & Elec) friends... passed away on Thanksgiving of 1984 as a young man of 56.  He was married to Jacqueline Barrows (Jackie) who was indeed from Perkinsville VT. Mom passed away Dec.1st 2003.  They met in Gardiner, NY. Dad worked on his cousin's farm and Mom was visiting her sister on a neighboring farm. Dad was the son of Kenneth A. Schoonmaker and Beatrice Handley. He grew up on Townsend Ave., spent some time in Marlboro and then moved to Delaware Ave. in the town, until his passing. Jack and Jackie were married for 32 years and had 5 children, Kendra, Donna, Lynda, Kenneth and Sheila. All of us went to NFA. Sheila did have a flower shop in Washingtonville called Sheila's Flower Nook.  Sadly, Lynda, Kenny and Sheila are also deceased.  Kendra lives in Buffalo, NY and I live in a small town outside of Albany. Dad was known by all for his dry sense of humor and his gracious nature, making everyone feel comfortable. We had a lot of laughs in out house and our parents showed each other and us a lot of love. Dad had his struggles, but he overcame them and helped many other people overcome theirs. Dad loved gardening and bowling, even once beating Dick Weber when he came into town for an exhibition at Campi-Tarsio Lanes. (Much to the chagrin of Mr. Weber)  He did work at Central Hudson and was at the Roseton Plant. He was the big boss then, working his way up the ranks. Years before that he worked at the Roseton brickyard so he came back full circle. He was a graduate of OCCC and Union College. All who knew him would agree that he was a special person, still missed greatly.
