Rest in Peace and Power to Greg Freerksen, who died unexpectedly yesterday December, 25, 2016 in his home at age 65. We do not know details at this time, only that he had planned to join us for Christmas and had lovingly planned a gift for everyone.
Greg was a civil rights and labor union attorney for about 40 years. He was also a Blues radio DJ for 20 years, and he was inducted into the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame during its first year. He loved music, dogs, being outdoors, science, and creating things, whether in the garden, the kitchen, or artistically. He was survived by his mother, two brothers, wife, and four children.
