The family of 49th Ward Democratic Committeeman David Fagus has asked me to share with you the information about his wake and funeral. As I reported last week, Committeeman Fagus passed away on Christmas Eve after a long battle with renal disease. He was 52.
The wake will be held New Year’s Day (Thursday, January 1st), from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Maloney Funeral Home, 1359 W. Devon (at Glenwood). A funeral mass will be held on Friday, January 2nd, 10:00 a.m. at St. Ignatius Church, 6559 N. Glenwood (at Loyola Avenue).
Burial will take place immediately following the mass at Calvary Cemetery, 301 Chicago Avenue in Evanston.
Following the internment, Barbara and I will host a reception for the family and those attending the services at our home at 1431 W. Fargo in Chicago.
