Gregory "Greg" D. Freiberg

May 24, 1949 — April 14, 2020

Gregory “Greg” D. Freiberg of Waukesha passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at AngelsGrace Hospice on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at age 70. He was born in Portage, WI on May 24, 1949 the son of Willard and Maida (nee Krentz) Freiberg. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. On August 7, 1971 he married Melissa “Lissa” (Lutz) at Reformation Lutheran Church in Brookfield and they were currently active members of First United Methodist Church in Waukesha. Greg worked for SPX Corporation (formerly Waukesha Electric) for 36 years as a senior test technician. He was a 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Mason and member of the Masonic Lodge in Whitewater. Greg loved curling and was a member of the Pardeeville Curling Club. He also spent many glorious hours with dear friends on the golf course and was able to travel often to see the wonders of the world.

He will be deeply missed by his wife of 48 years, Lissa of Waukesha and their children, Amanda (Drew) Gottheardt of New Berlin and Lucas Freiberg of Waukesha and grandchildren Quinn and Kennedy Freiberg and Spenser Gottheardt. He is further survived by his brother Blair (Mary) Freiberg of Waukesha, sister-in-law Cary Freiberg of Waukesha, sister-in-law Wendy (the late Richard) Tolzmann of New Berlin, brothers-in-law Randy Lutz of Minneapolis, and Dave Mickler, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. He was preceded in death by his father Willard Freiberg, his mother Maida Crown, his step-father Melvin (Bud) Crown and his brother Scott Freiberg. His sister Julie Mickler passed away January 14, 2021.

Greg will be fondly remembered by all for his zest for life, his quirky sense of humor, off key singing of Happy Birthday, his love of his dogs, his vehement support of his ideals and his complete dedication to his family and friends. He was always there to lend a helping hand and a sarcastic comment.
