John Michael Frekot, Sr. of Doylestown passed away peacefully on April 3, 2017.
John lived a full life with great love of family and an endless supply of humor.
Born in 1932 to the late Adam and Elizabeth Frekot, he lived his early years three and one half blocks from Wrigley Field, the friendly confines of the Chicago Cubs. He moved to Minnesota and later to Pennsylvania as he raised his family with his first wife, Caroline Buschauer Frekot, who preceded him in death.
John served in the Korean war and worked as an engineer at Honeywell.
He loved organic gardening, birdwatching, fishing, singing and collecting stamps and other “good stuff.” John played an active role in many community organizations, including Fairview Gardens Civic Association, Knights of Columbus, American Legion, Lions Club, St. Joseph’s Society, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Choir and the State Street Players.
He will be lovingly remembered as we continue to tell his jokes ~ Uff dah!
He is survived by his wife, Joanne Busfield Frekot, his children: JoAnn Frekot, John Frekot (Lori), Sue Frekot, Jeff Frekot (Terry) and Jennifer Frekot Piotrowski (Greg) and his 11 grandchildren, as well as Joanne’s two daughters: Laura Kregenow (David) and Liz Wilson (Jamie) and their families.
Relatives and friends are invited to his funeral Mass at 3:30 p.m., Friday, April 7 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 235 East State Street, Doylestown where the family will receive guests from 1:30 p.m. until the time of Mass. Interment will be private.
