Gregory Todd Fredricks was born sixty years ago, today. He was the son of John and Louise Fredricks. He was one of six children. I wasn't close to Greg, but I do remember him fondly from visiting his home when we were kids and at the Fredricks Family Reunions.

His obituary didn't show what kind of hard working man Greg was. He loved his family and the Detroit Tigers. Greg has been missed and it is a shame he isn't here to celebrate his 60th. I am sure it would have been a great party!

Happy Birthday in heaven, Greg. Greg's Find a Grave memorial can be found here.
