Freund, George M. age 92 of Coon Rapids, Minnesota passed away on May 19, 2017.

Preceded in death by Second Wife, Vi; Sons, Butch and Jack; Grandsons, Joey and Scott; Son-in-law, Tom; and Siblings, Pauline, John and Marie.

Survived by Children, Rita (Russ), Bea (Larry), Mary, Carol (Rick), Carl (Kristi), Janet, Lil (Bob) and Roxy; 26 Grandchildren; 54 1/2 Great-grandchildren and 3 Great-great grandchildren; Siblings Ray, Ruth and Mike (Lou). Also 4 Step-children; Lloyd (Bonnie), Dawn (Brent), Greg (Terry) and Jeff (Sharon) and Their Families.

He loved his Country; his bravery during WWII where he served as a BAR man in the Battle of the Bulge earning himself a Bronze Star, a Purple Heart and a Sharp Shooter medal and a lifetime of stories that he proudly shared with family and friends.

He loved his family and he loved life; he struggled with leaving his loved ones. He had a very strong faith and love for God, it's comforting to know he is in his glory now and dancing in heaven! We miss you Dad and will be together again, someday.

Thank you to the staff and caretakers at Epiphany Assisted Living for caring for our father in his final years.
