Robert B. Frey

Robert B. Frey, 73, of Taylorville passed away suddenly at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at his home. He was born in Litchfield IL on October 15, 1942, the son of Henry and Jessie Frey.  He worked for Commonwealth Edison at the Kincaid generating station for over 30 years, retiring as operating foreman.  Robert enthusiastically pursued and discussed his numerous hobbies and interests, including politics, fishing, automotive engine building, motorcycle restoration, raising chickens, beekeeping, and pond management.  He possessed remarkable engineering abilities that enabled him to build, repair, and modify equipment and devices.  He took particular pride in his 1970 Oldsmobile that he built with his children.  Robert especially enjoyed his fishing trips to the Mississippi river with his sons and friends. 

Robert is survived by his wife of 52 years Jane Frey of Taylorville IL; children Joan (Vic) Arrington of Elk Grove Village IL, James (Teresa) Frey of Huntsville OH, Michael (Deborah) Frey of Taylorville IL, and Matthew (Dana) Frey of Cottage Grove MN; mother Jessie Frey of Alhambra IL; sister Gloria Frey of Alhambra IL; grandchildren Leah Rivard, Colin Arrington, Benjamin Frey, and Kara Frey; niece Kimberly (Donald) Knoche of Bloomington IL; and many cousins.  He was preceded in death by his father; brother Charles (Karen, surviving) Frey; and niece Melissa Frey.

Thoughts & prayers for Bob's family. Haven't seen Bob for years, but always had a special spot in my heart. We were neighbors & he and Chuck spent lots of time at our house with my brothers. I was the pesty little sister. And Gloria was at their house.. I had two extra brothers.
So very sorry for your loss.
