Obituary for Louis "Buster" Freeman

Louis “Buster” Freeman, Sr was born on August 6, 1950 in Bainbridge, GA to Lillie Mae Freeman and Tom Freeman. Louis was the fifth of 10 children born to Lillie Mae.

Louis attended school in the Decatur County educational system. He received his high school diploma from Hutto High in 1970, graduating with the last segregated class before integration.

While in the 9th grade, he began working for Mr. & Mrs. Jimmy Cliett at Cliett’s Hardware. After many years of hard work, he was able to purchase the Cliett’s building from his former employer and began his now 23 year- business venture, L & G’s Used Appliances. Louis gave back to his community by mentoring and teaching young people about the importance of entrepreneurship. He participated in the Bainbridge High School Education Training and Transition (BETT) program which catered to graduating seniors who were seeking real world training and work experience.

Louis loved playing pool and riding his motorcycles. He even built his very first motorcycle, a Harley Davidson long nose chopper.

Louis grew up as a member of Nelson Chapel AME Church as a child, but later rededicated his life to Christ and was again baptized at New Freedom Christian Ministries. He became very active in the church and loved to share his personal testimony about what brought him closer to the Lord.

Louis was diagnosed with lung cancer in October of 2012 and fought a long hard fight until the Lord called him home on July 19th, 2016. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and his canine companions.

He was preceded in death by his son Louis “Mann” Freeman, Jr, brothers Warren Freeman, Lucious “Smokey” Humphery, and Joseph Freeman; sister Almeda Tarver. Left to cherish his memories are his loving wife, Gloria J. Freeman, daughter Sheila Evans (Bernard) who adamantly carries out her father’s passion for riding motorcycles, daughter Crystal, stepson Keith Frazier, son Eric Davis; mother, Lillie Mae Freeman; brothers: George (Vera), Tom (Esther), Walt (Aeran), Sam (Phyllis); sisters: Glendora, Annie, and Lois; aunts Rebecca and Jewell Williams; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.
