Joseph Mizzell Freeman (JoJo) was born on December 1, 1960 in Rutherford County to Mildred Newman; he departed this life on September 20, 2014. He attended Christiana School and Riverdale High; later in life he received his GED. Football was his favorite sport and he loved cheering on the New York Jets. JoJo loved being outside, and you could always catch him sitting on the corner of Highland and Castle waving and talking to everyone that passed by. JoJo’s loving and contagious personality will be missed by all of those that he came in contact with.
JoJo was preceded in death by step-father Thomas Freeman, Sr.; grandfather Joe Newman, Jr.; and best friend Wayne Daniels.
