Harry Freeman, 34, employee at ESPN Zone

Harry L. Freeman, a music lover who enjoyed cooking and worked in the kitchen at the ESPN Zone restaurant in the Inner Harbor, died Friday of undetermined causes at his home in Baltimore's Liberty Heights area. He was 34.

Born in Norfolk, Va., Mr. Freeman moved to Baltimore as a toddler with his family and graduated with honors from Walbrook High School.

A saxophone player, he attended the School for the Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for two years, then began work at Magna Tech School in Florida, teaching and studying music, and earning an associate of arts degree in video music.

Returning to Baltimore in 1997, Mr. Freeman worked for a nursing home and at several restaurants before joining the ESPN Zone staff three years ago, said its general manager, Adam Smith. "He was just such a happy person," Mr. Smith said. "His smile will definitely be missed."

Known to friends as "Harry Bear," Mr. Freeman liked to experiment with his cooking and kept up an interest in music that included an extensive collection of musical equipment. He was a member of Pennsylvania Avenue African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow at Howell Funeral Services, 4600 Liberty Heights Ave.

He is survived by his father and stepmother, the Rev. Henry C. and Virginia Freeman of Woodlawn; his mother and stepfather, Marie and Marshall Bulls of Woodlawn; his maternal grandfather, Henry Wright, and paternal grandmother, Lois Braye, both of Norfolk; seven brothers, Derwin Freeman of Norfolk, and Marshall Bulls Jr., Henry Freeman II, Brandon Freeman, Orlando Freeman, Jordon Freeman and Christopher Freeman, all of Baltimore; and two sisters, Tahesa Bulls and Aesha Bulls, both of Baltimore.
