Scott Willard Freiberg
Jan. 26, 1948 – March 18, 2014
Scott Willard Freiberg passed away unexpectedly at his home in Waukesha. He was born in Portage in 1948 and graduated from New Berlin High School in 1967.
He married Carolyn (nee Timm) in 1970 and they recently celebrated 44 years of marriage. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force as a medic in the neonatal intensive care unit at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, from 1975 to 1977. After working for more than 25 years at Quad/Graphics, he retired in 2003. While at Quad/Graphics, he was very proud to have earned his master printer certification.
During that time, he also completed his studies and received certificates in computer networking and as an EMT. He enjoyed motorcycles, computers, guns and hunting, woodworking, cooking, film, photography and flying as a licensed commercial multiengine pilot. In retirement, he found great pleasure in driving his motorcycle on country roads in southern Wisconsin.
He was also known for his delicious peach pie, chili and other soups that he regularly shared with friends. He was adventurous in the kitchen and interested in trying new recipes and ingredients. Coming from humble origins, he, through the virtue of hard work, achieved much in life.
He was well traveled, particularly enjoying Europe and the Caribbean, and new places and new experiences. He was a proud member and supporter of the NRA, the AOPA and the Boy Scouts of America.
He was loved by his family and known for his sense of humor, his intelligence, his wide variety of experiences and ability to tell stories. He was good in the kitchen and on the grill, in the garden and in the garage. He was always willing to help others. And he will be greatly missed.
Scott is survived by his wife, Carolyn (nee Timm); their son, Justin (Anna); his sister, Julie Mickler (David); brothers Gregory (Melissa) and Blair (Mary); great-nieces and nephews; and other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Willard and Maida, and his infant brother Paul.
