Mark Freeman

Mark Freeman, born on March 19, 1947, in Cedar Vale, Kansas, peacefully passed away in his sleep on Wednesday, May 1st. He was the son of Robert and Mildred Freeman, both of whom preceded him in death.


Mark is survived by his beloved wife, Penny Freeman. He leaves behind a legacy of love and family, including his son, Robert Freeman of Kansas City, Missouri, his wife Sara, and their four children: Katelyn, Jillian, Allison, and Jackson. Additionally, Mark is survived by his daughter, Vicki Warhurst, residing in Lincoln, Nebraska, her husband Aaron, and their daughter, Reese. He is also survived by his sister, Cindy Sharp, and her husband, Robert, from Richards, Texas and many other family members.


Mark's life was a testament to his love for adventure and exploration. He found joy in journeys, whether driving off-road, collecting unique rocks, or marveling at the beauty of birds and trees. His adventurous spirit was matched only by his love for his family. Mark cherished spending time with his grandchildren, engaging them in spirited games of dominoes and cooking meals that brought the family together.


Though a man of few words, Mark's love for his wife knew no bounds, and he took immense pride in his children and grandchildren. His quiet demeanor was eclipsed only by the depth of his affection for his family. Mark's presence will be profoundly missed, but his love and memories will endure in the hearts of all who knew him.


In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Botanica, The Wichita Gardens, 701 Amidon Street, Wichita, KS 67203, and Tanganyika Wildlife Park, 1000 South Hawkins Lane, Goddard, KS 67052, in honor of Mark's memory.
