Frank Lagowski Obituary
Frank Lagowski, 77, formerly of St. Charles and Batavia, passed away Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013, at Geneva Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Geneva. He was born Oct. 20, 1935, in Chicago, son of Lillian Lagowski. 

Frank spent the first part of his childhood in foster care before moving to Lincoln State School in Lincoln. In 1969, he was transferred to live at the North Aurora Center, where he lived until he moved to St. Charles as a live-in employee at the Hotel Baker. Frank could always be found in downtown St. Charles, whether he was polishing the brass outside of Hotel Baker or shopping downtown. He loved the staff of the hotel and counted them as his family. 

Frank moved to Riverain Point Apartments in Batavia and lived there for many years. Frank loved going to all the festivals that were held in St. Charles, Geneva or Batavia, movies at the "Lonely Mall," Cougar games and park district trips. He made friends easily and usually was adopted by them as part of their family.  Frank's favorite holiday was Christmas, which he would celebrate year-round by never taking down his Christmas tree. The Congregational Church family was more than happy to help and provide for him, it was a mutual admiration society. Frank was very special to everyone in the congregation, always making sure Frank was able to do the things he loved.

Frank will be dearly missed by all of his many friends. He was an inspiration to all that knew him.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Congregational United Church of Christ, 40W451 Fox Mill Blvd., St. Charles. Interment will be private.

Memorials may be directed to the Congregational United Church of Christ, St Charles, in Frank's memory.
