Bob was born August 6, 1943 to Arnold and Lillian (Aamodt) Freiberg in Spring Lake Township, Pierce County, Wisconsin.  He was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith, was a longtime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church-Hatchville, and presently a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Woodville.

Bob grew up and attended grades 1-8 at Reed School and Spring Valley High School graduating with the Class of 1962.  After graduating, Bob  worked with his parents on the home farm.

On October 5, 1968 Bob married Barbara Fritz.  They were married at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church due to the fire at St. John’s-Hatchville.

Bob was well known for his goofy sense of humor and his love of talking to anyone that had the time. His family and his Christian faith were very important to him. His passion was welding, forging, and helping others.
