Scott Gerald Freeman, 55; of Hannibal, NY passed away in Lysander, New York as a result of a tragic logging accident. Scott was a man who loved life and enjoyed every day not worrying about the next.

No one worked physically harder, and no one told stories as captivating, hysterical and animated as he. Scott was a loving and proud father, loyal to his friends, and always willing to lend a hand with a “No Job to Big” motto.
