Freck Funeral Chapel now flourishes in a wonderful community with much future opportunity to grow.
Joe and Bianca have three children; Joseph, Sarah and Abigail. The Frecks are members of St. Ignatius Catholic Church, the Clay Alumni and Friends Association, GBU, USAA, Exchange Club, Oregon Economic Development Foundation, BBB, Ohio Funeral Directors Association, National Funeral Directors Association, Knights of Columbus-River East Mother Teresa Council #14344.
