GALENA–Thomas Joseph Frey, Galena, formerly of Batavia, was looking forward to pitchers and catchers reporting on his birthday, Feb. 12, and perhaps even his beloved White Sox beginning play on the earliest opening day, ever, March 28, when he got called up to the only Big League that really matters, while at home, on Jan. 26, 2019.
A funeral mass will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at St. Mary Catholic Church, Galena, where friends may gather after 10 a.m. until time of mass.
Military honors will be accorded at the church by VFW Post 2665 and American Legion Post 193, Galena, following the mass.
Burial will be at a later date. Cremation rites have been accorded.
The Furlong Funeral Chapel, Galena, is assisting the family.
