Eric J. Freeman



Eric was born in Eugene, Ore., on Jan. 9, 1967. From 1967 to 1979 he lived in San Jose, Calif., and then to Richland, Wash., until 1985. He got into the car business and found one of his passions. He loved to work with people and cars. His sense of humor and personable characteristics were very large elements during his life. These elements kept elevating him in the car business. He was promoted to management in Yakima followed by a General Management position in Medford, Ore., when he opened up a new dealership there.

Another passion Eric had was his children. He was a devoted father who loved his children and family. He also had a very strong passion for fishing, golf and soccer. His sense of humor, outgoing personality, love of life, will be solely missed by all members of his family and friends. He was one who could keep your interest in telling stories and ad-libbing jokes.

He is survived by his children, Davin and Kalynn; stepson, Mason Yeigh; siblings, Craig, Jay and Gwen Freeman; and his parents, Ilene and Gordon.
