Obituary for Pastor Gary L. Freeman

Pastor Gary L. Freeman, 63 years, of Bethlehem died surrounded by family Saturday March 25th, 2017 at the Lehigh Valley Hospice in Allentown after a long courageous battle with cancer. He was the husband of Donna (Stoudt) Freeman of Bethlehem and would have celebrated 39 years of marriage together this June. Born in East Stroudsburg, he was a son of Paul L. and Elizabeth (Kaetzel) Freeman both of Illinois.

Gary was an Emmaus High School graduate and in 1975 he graduated from Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, in Owatonna, MN. For three summers he was in the "Preacher Boy Program" at the Calvary Baptist Church, Lansdale, PA under the direction of Dr. E.R. Jordan. In 1976, the Pastor and his father felt led to start an independent Baptist church in the Allentown/Bethlehem area. This church was named Bethlehem Bible Church, then Fundamental Bible Church and finally the Race Street Baptist Church located in Catasauqua and where Gary has remained the pastor there from the start.

Surviving along with his wife Donna and his parents are his daughter Rachel L. Reno and husband Mark; son Jason G. Freeman and wife Kelly; brother Paul C. Freeman and wife Deborah; sisters Diane J. Freeman and Beth J. Freeman; grandchildren Caleb and Lydia Freeman, and Stephen, Katie, Trisha and Reuben Reno.
