Mark Edward Freeman, 72, a longtime resident of Union and Baker Counties, passed away on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 surrounded by his family and friends after a courageous battle with cancer. Mark, a lifelong outdoors-man who shared his love of nature with all those around him, is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Sharon Freeman, of Baker City, his son and daughter-in-law, Josh and Shelly Freeman, of Seattle, WA, daughter and son-in-law, Mariah and Patrick Courtright, of Eagle, ID and granddaughter Calla Freeman, grandson Alex Freeman and grand-puppies Arrow and Skittles. Always possessed of a quick wit and dry humor, Mark believed in living life to its fullest and helping his fellow man and would, therefore, in lieu of flowers, request a donation in his honor to one of the following charities:
Crossroads, Eastern Oregon Regional Theater, The YMCA or The Bobcat Foundation through Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Chapel at 1500 Dewey Ave., Baker City, Oregon 97814.
A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, February 18th at 2:00pm at Coles Tribute Center, located at 1950 Place Street, in Baker City.
