Dave Freeman dead at 47


After making his career with Grey Advertising in New York, Dave Freeman achieved a level of general market fame as co-author of the best selling 1999 book “100 Things to Do Before You Die.” Now Freeman’s life has been cut short at age 47 from head injuries suffered in a fall at his California home. Relatives told the LA Times that Freeman had made it through about half of the list of 100 travel events that ranged from attending the Academy Awards to a voodoo pilgrimage in Haiti.
