Hans – Dieter Freisem, 77, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, passed away on April 5, 2020 at St. Lucie Medical Center. The cause was complications of the coronavirus.
He was born to parents Franz and Irma, on January 14, 1943, in Mannheim, Germany. Hans completed his apprenticeship with Bopp & Reuther Messtechnik and went on to earn a degree in Engineering. He also served proudly in the German Military (NATO) from 1962 – 1965. In 1967, he immigrated to the United States to become a naturalized citizen.
He married Jeannine, on July 29, 1969, who survives him. Hans is also survived by his daughter Tanya Bauer and her husband James Bauer and grandchildren Jack and Matthew; his son Michael, his wife Jennifer and grandchildren Landon and Levi; his sister Ruth Jung and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased in death by his parents, son (Mark) and grandson (Jacob).
Hans’ professional career spanned more than 5 decades to include leadership roles with Burkhardt Brothers, Crucible Specialty Metals, INCO Alloys International and Haynes International. He was an active member of and served on the Board of Directors of the German Club in Port St. Lucie. He was a black belt in Kenpo Karate, enjoyed golfing and travelling and loved spending time with his family. He had so many stories about life and love – those that knew him well can surely attest.
Donations can be made to Shriner’s Hospital for Children, in lieu of sending flowers.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
