Walter Joachim Freudenberg

Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Directors is honored to serve the family of Walter Joachim Freudenberg We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Walter Joachim Freudenberg, beloved husband, father, and grandfather and great-grandfather. Born September 2, 1945 in Flushing, Queens, Walter was the only child of Marian and Gustav Freudenberg. Walter grew up in Bayside and married Nancy Brennan in 1971. They spent 52 wonderful years together as husband and wife. Walter was a generous and devoted father to children Gary (deceased), Diahanna, Michael, and Janet. He was a kind and steadfast father-in-law to Garys wife Cindy, and Michaels wife Angelique. And he was a proud grandfather to his eight grandchildren: Dustin, Kayla, Zachary, Jeremy, Isabella, Kayle, Livia, and Julian and two great-grandchildren, Joseph and Ordell. Walter also felt blessed to have his brothers-in-law, Tom Brennan and John Gistedt (deceased), along with sisters-in-law, Maureen Gistedt (deceased) and Liz Brennan. Walter truly admired his father, Gustav, who co-founded Dairy Conveyor, a conveyor belt manufacturing and installation company. As an only child, Walter took great pride in learning the business from his father, and eventually became vice-president and co-owner of the company. His dedication and unwavering work ethic remained a constant throughout. While committed to his work, Walter took immense joy in the leisure time spent with Nancy and his children. He cherished summers at Candlewood Lake, where he enjoyed boating, fishing, and barbequing for family and friends. With his soft-spoken demeanor and old-school formalities, he was known to offer guests a "nice hello," and extend a warm welcome. To know Walter was to also know he cherished his German heritage, often speaking the language with friends and playing Bavarian music on his accordion. In fact, Walter and Nancy met at a formal dance hall in Queens in 1970, and enjoyed many a happy dance since. Family will be receiving visitors on Thursday, 1/4 from 3-7PM at Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home, 288 Main St, Mt Kisco. Funeral Mass will be on Friday, 1/5 at 10am at the Church of St. John and St. Mary, 15 St. Poillon Drive, Chappaqua.
