Danielson – Paul G. Freeman, 68, formerly of New London, Norwich, and New Hampshire, died Saturday, May 22, 2021 at Davis Place Healthcare Center. Born in Dover, New Hampshire, he was the son of the late George and Dorothy (St. Clair) Freeman. At the age of 18 Paul drove race cars at the Thompson Speedway.
Mr. Freeman was a veteran of the United States Army serving during the Vietnam War as a cook. He served his country for over 17 years.
Mr. Freeman owned and operated his own cleaning company, PF Cleaning Services. He was also a ballroom dance instructor in his earlier years.
