The family of prominent Nashville entrepreneur and community leader Darrell S. Freeman Sr. released a statement this morning announcing his death.
Nashville businessman Darrell Freeman died Tuesday, his family said in a statement.
He is 57 years old, according to a family spokesman.
The cause of death was not publicly announced.
“Our beloved father and husband contracted a serious illness and eventually passed away on the night of June 28, 2022,” the family said. “As we navigate this uncharted territory and difficult times, we ask for your sympathy. Prayer and privacy.”
Freeman has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Board of Trustees of Middle Tennessee State University.
