Robert Joseph Freson was born in Aztalan Wisconsin to Clara Ambrose Freson and John Freson on October 6th 1931.

He was number nine of 12 children.

His home was a humble farm passed down through Clara's family.

John Freson worked as a farmer and he was also a section hand for the local railroad.

Clara worked the farm and was also a very dedicated and busy homemaker.

Bob's upbringing trained him to be a sturdy worker. Despite hardships and setbacks he endured to complete his education through the 12th grade.

Several older brother served in World War II. Bob admired their patriotism and wanted to serve as well. He was drafted into the Korean War. He was always pleased and proud for the opportunity.

While stationed at Navy Pier in Chicago in 1952, he met Lillian on a blind date. They eloped on November 15th, 1952. Immediately after Bob was discharged, they were married at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago.

They had four children: Robert Jr., Valerie, John and Matthew.

Bob learned to be enterprising and took the risk to open his own business in 1956. It is a heating and cooling company called Heatcool. Residential window air conditioning was in its infancy then.

Despite living in Chicago all of his married life, Jefferson County is where his heart and soul always resided. He adored visiting with his brothers and sisters. He took great efforts to be with them often.

We have heard so many interesting funny and sad stories. If you listen carefully enough, you'll discover they are full of wise lessons to learn by.

We are thankful for Bob's presence on the face of this Earth. He was an amazing teacher and coach to not only his children but also for dozens of employees throughout Heatcool's 64 years.

We expect Bob is filled with joy in his union with Jesus his savior in whom he trusted deeply and also reeling with happiness to see his parted brothers and sisters again, as well as his son Robert Jr., and wife Lillian.

Thank you Bob for the faithful son, brother, husband, and father that you were. We will remember you with gratitude for the knowledge and strength of dedication you imparted.

May we take what we have learned from you and invested it wisely.
