Obituary for Gregory N. Freerksen

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.

Memorial Visitation 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday December 29 at Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home, 203 S. Marion St., Oak Park. Kindly omit flowers, donations to Prairie State Legal Services are appreciated.

To plant a tree in memory of Gregory N. Freerksen, visit the Tribute Store.
