Obituary of William Peter Freitag

William Peter Freitag, 70, of South Glens Falls, formerly of Albany, passed away peacefully on November 11, 2023.
Born on July 31, 1953 in Albany, William was the son of the late Carl E. and Margaret J. (Benson) Freitag.
He was raised in Albany where he attended local schools, Christian Brothers Academy (C.B.A.) and also Albany Junior College. Mr. Freitag resided in South Glens Falls at the time of his death.
William was an animal lover and will be warmly remembered as being open minded. He would do anything for anyone in need. He was a mentor to many. William could be hilariously inappropriate, sarcastic. He also enjoyed woodworking, nature walks, and was a history fanatic.
