Gregory Freerksen 1951-2016
Gregory Freerksen 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. His family was very important to him.
He is survived by his mother Betty Jo Freerksen, his brothers Doug Freerksen and Dan Freerksen, wife Patricia Menges, and four children Suzanna Freerksen, Andrea Freerksen, Paul Freerksen, Tim Freerksen, his sister-in-law Deb Freerksen, and his nieces and nephews Ryan Freerksen, Kaitlyn Freerksen, Anna Freerksen and Keith Freerksen. As Greg used to say, "Keep your mojo workin' and don't take no 3-6-9." Services have been held.
