Joseph "Harry" Freeland died on Tuesday. He was president of Freeland Products Inc., a tube rebuilding company based in Louisiana. He was 53.
His son Joel will replace him in running the company, which dates to 1940. A service is planned Friday (Nov. 8).
The firm said Harry Freeland joined his father W.T. Freeland Sr. in operating the business in 1966, after the son served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War. The elder Freeland died in 1990. That's when his son took over management of the company.
"Under his leadership, the business moved from the original Conti Street location in New Orleans to the piney woods of Covington, La.," the company stated. Freeland Products enlarged its facility during his tenure to handle orders for TV klystrons as well as shortwave transmitter tubes for VOA.
Survivors include four children and five grandchildren. The family asked that donations be sent in memory of Harry Freeland to the American Heart Association.
