Hans-Dieter Freisem

January 14, 1943 ~ April 05, 2020

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.

We were so very saddened to hear of Dieter’s passing. He was a terrific neighbor, friend and one who always had great stories to tell. We both were the first ones to move into this tract of homes on Smokey Hollow Road and shared stories and ideas of our home renovations. Being next door neighbors our kids often played together. Although we haven’t seen Dieter since he left Baldwinsville, NY we think of him and Jeannine often and hear of the family indirectly through his son and daughter. Our deepest sympathy to Jeannine, Michael, Tanya, and other relatives.

Jeanniene, Michael and Tanya, our hearts go out to you and your families in this time of loss. We will miss his great smile and laugh and his stories of growing up in Germany, raising his children, and at his work places. His children and grandchildren were the light of his life and Jeanniene the love of his life.
We had so many good times in the German Club, at parties, on trips and in their home. You are all in our prayers.

Mike, please say it isn’t so!!!!
I am in disbelief.
I was reading your Facebook post and thought it was your Dad’s birthday & you were reminiscing. Then I read “we didn’t have enough time Dad”. It shocked me. I am so so sorry for your family’s loss. I pray for you, your Mom – Jeannine and your Sister – Tanya and all of your family members. Ultimately, I am praying for your Father – Hans, who was my first boss, a fearless leader, a driver of men – so full of experience and wisdom! He shared his thoughts and ideas openly to make me a better supervisor, manager & man. He became my dear friend along with the Freisem family. He will be missed so much. May God be with you & bless you & your family.

With deepest sympathy,
Todd, Benay, Mike & Jenna Barady

  • 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.
