Lionel was born to Winnifred Clara (Evered) from Plaistow, England and Horace Albert Freeland from Husham, England in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on September 1, 1932. He attended school there with his older brother Al and little sister Claudia. His dad was a shoemaker who lost his leg boarding a streetcar and his mother a homemaker.

Lionel’s first job was at a bowling alley setting pins. He worked at Wilson Stationers, Hub City Grocery and then in 1951 at the age of 18, he and his future brother-in-law Irvine Andrews joined the army. His first posting was as a medical assistant for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs in Calgary then Base Hospital in Wainwright, Alberta. In 1952 Lionel served in the Korean Conflict as a medical assistant where he was injured when a jeep rolled on top of him.

In 1953 he returned to Victoria, B.C. and married Marjorie Jean Andrews of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on April 25, 1953. Together the raised three children: Linda (Larry Barnes) of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Wayne (Marlene Goebel) of Regina, Saskatchewan and Phillip (Jennifer Millington) of Regina, Saskatchewan.

He loved spending time with his grandchildren: Christopher and Scott Barnes, Chad and Mathew Freeland, and Jessica and Andrew Freeland and two great grandchildren Darren and Branden. At that time he worked at the Medical Inspection Room with LL9 and L29 Battery (Artillery).

From 1954 to 1955 he went overseas to Germany where he served with 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry. From 1955 to 1958 he continued as a medical assistant at Alberta Military Base Hospital and from 1958 to 1961 in the Evacuation Section of 4 Field Ambulance at CFB Borden. Lionel always took every advantage to better himself and enrolled in many courses. From 1961 to 1962 he was stationed at Target Area Headquarters, Newmarket, Ontario as an instructor of National Survivor Intelligence, Air Photography and Photo Interpretation and Draftsman.

From 1962 to 1963 he was Senior Medical Assistant, Dentist and First Aid Instructor at Canadian Forces Station Alert, North West Territories where he started their first radio station. 1963 to 1967 saw him at Treatment Company of 4 Field Ambulance at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa and then back to CFB Borden. From 1967 to 1971 Lionel was the Chief Instructor for all medical matters, weapons training and drill to all militia personnel at the Newfoundland District Intelligence Staff Headquarters, St. Johns, Newfoundland.

From 1971 to 1973 he was the Chief Instructor for all Nuclear, Radiation, Chemical Defense Course for all military personnel for Eastern Canada and Senior Medical Assistant for all personnel attending the Nuclear Biological and Chemical Defense Fleet School at Halifax. From 1973 to 1974 Lionel was Hospital Warrant Officer at the Base Hospital at CFB Shilo. From 1974 to 1977 he was Company Sergeant Major for 1 Field Ambulance CFB Calgary.

From 1977 to 1978 he was Company Sergeant Major of the Health Support Unit in the Republic of Egypt. From 1978 to 1982 he became Regimental Sergeant Major for 2 Field Ambulance CFB Petawawa. From 1982 to retirement Lionel served as the Regimental Sergeant Major for 1 Forward Surgical Hospital CFB Petawawa, Ontario.

After 36 years of service Lionel retired and moved to be closer to his family in Regina. Marjorie died soon afterward ending a difficult battle with cancer.

Lionel loved sports; he played hockey, baseball, golf, and volleyball and won many curling awards. Retirement gave him time to attend garage sales. He became an active member in the Royal Canadian Legion and the Korea War Veterans Association. Lionel was a strong, loving father who loved reading and collecting. He collected everything! But the love of his life was his wife and he missed her dearly. He wrote her a poem every year for their anniversary; even the 10 years after she died.

He died suddenly in his sleep on August 6, 2000. Lionel gave generously to all charities. He talked to everyone and whistled and sang continuously. The Korea Veteran’s Association was proud to serve as Honor Guard and present the Last Post and Reveille for him in the Act of Remembrance. “The eternal seed of remembrance is planted in the hearts of family and friends” and Lionel will be dearly remembered.

A MEMORIAL SERVICE was held at the Regina Funeral Home, Hwy #1 East, on Monday, August 14, 2000 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Ron Sutton officiating. A private family interment followed.
