Frank Cicero, Jr.

Nov 30, 1935 - Feb 25, 2024

location-icon

Chicago, IL

With great sadness, we announce the death of Frank Cicero, Jr., age 88, a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and brother. Known as an accomplished trial attorney and historian, he was also a lover of the American West, fine European food and wine, and a devotee of education and lifelong learning. Surrounded by his loving family, Frank died February 25, 2024 in the historic home he loved so much. We will miss his tenacious spirit, loving heart, and intellectual prowess.First in his family to go to high school or college, Frank was born in Chicago in 1935 to first generation Italian-American parents, Frank, Sr. and Mary Balma Cicero. His two sets of grandparents emigrated from Italy; one couple were Protestant Waldensians from the Alps and the other were Catholic Sicilians. In his retirement years, Frank devoted himself to understanding his parents’ different backgrounds–both Italian, but very different. With the curiosity of a trial lawyer making a case, he dug into his heritage and exploration of Italian Protestants. As such, he enjoyed his period as a trustee of the American Waldensian Society, and he completed his first book, Relative Strangers: Italian Protestants in the Catholic World (Academy Chicago Publishers, 2011).A Lyons Township High School debate state champion, one of his most proud accomplishments was serving in the Sixth Illinois Constitutional Convention, which drafted the state's most recent constitution in 1969-1970. His lifelong love of state history and policy remained and inspired him to write Creating the Land of Lincoln: The History and Constitutions of Illinois 1778-1870, (University of Illinois, 2018). In recognition of the book’s contribution to the study of Illinois history, the Illinois State Historical Society honored his work with the Russell P. Strange Book of the Year Award in 2019. During his exploration into this neglected area of Illinois history, he enjoyed research trips to Springfield, along with his tenure on the Board of Newberry Library in Chicago. Encouraged by his high school teachers, Frank went to Amherst College before returning to Illinois to attend Wheaton College (AB, Political Science, 1957).Frank married childhood friend Jan Pickett in 1959, and enrolled at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (MPA, 1962). They later returned to Chicago where he attended the University of Chicago Law School (JD, 1965). The Kirkland & Ellis law firm hired Frank in 1965, and he remained active with the firm for more than five decades as a litigator, partner, and senior partner. He handled major civil and criminal trials in U.S. federal and state courts as well as international arbitrations and litigations. His cases ranged from antitrust and trade regulation to environmental issues to trademark claims. Many of his colleagues cite his mentorship and strategic thinking as integral to their career development and professional knowledge of the field of law. As an effective leader in the firm, Frank was integral in building Kirkland & Ellis’ international reputation and presence.In 1975, Frank was lead counsel representing the Chicago Afro-American Patrolmen's League (AAPL) and Renault Robinson in a civil suit (United States v. City of Chicago, 395 F. Supp. 329) against the Chicago Police Department charging violations of First Amendment rights and race discrimination. Frank won damages and injunctions in the case which resulted in judgments against the City and reform of police hiring and promotion practices locally and across the nation. Beginning in 1978, he began conducting fact finding across the world in the case of the Amoco Cadiz oil spill off the coast of France, tried both the liability and damages phases of that massive litigation, and argued the various appeals in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. On behalf of respondents in Free et al vs Abbott Laboratories, Inc. et al, an antitrust case, he argued an appeal in the US Supreme Court in 2000. Frank was a Fellow of both the American College of Trial Lawyers as well as the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and represented many of Kirkland’s largest clients.Frank spent his adult life in pursuit of the perfect view, and spent extensive time developing friendships and experiences in Arizona, Colorado, France, and Italy. A trustee of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and the Nature Conservancy of Colorado, he cherished time with his family studying the Four Corners region, and skiing and hiking Rocky Mountain trails. His work, lineage study, and family friendships took him to France and Italy, and he spent much time pursuing language expertise. He enjoyed sitting on his historic wooden porch, engaged in French, Italian, and historic preservation conversations with scholars and those whom he dearly loved. In addition, through their travels over their lifetime together, he and Jan grew as connoisseurs of fine food and wine.Jan Cicero, his beloved wife of 65 years, survives him, along with his sister Nancy and sister-in-law June. Frank also leaves behind his cherished next generations to carry on his memory and legacy. He was the proud father of two daughters, Erica and Caroline; father-in-law of Edward Chrapla and Craig Detweiler; and loving and devoted grandfather to Zoe Detweiler, Theo Detweiler, and Leo Chrapla. He relished his time visiting with his grandchildren, discussing their various interests, and encouraging them in their educational, artistic, athletic, and musical pursuits. Taking his daughters and their families to visit his ancestral homelands was an important step in his journey beyond retirement and in his own life-review, to explore history and find meaning in his unique heritage. His brother James and parents Frank, Sr. and Mary preceded him in death. Frank’s lifetime of contribution spans many areas and interests in culture and community. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to a non-profit he loved dearly:Crow Canyon Archeological Center or Newberry Library.A celebration of Frank Cicero’s life will be in the sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church, 1427 Chicago Avenue, Evanston. May 18, 2024 at 3:00 pm. Greetings with family members will start one hour prior, at 2:00, also in the sanctuary.

Andrew E. Eilers

Apr 25, 1945 - Feb 26, 2024

location-icon

Chicago, IL

Andrew E. Eilers age 78. Beloved son of the late Eugene and Loretta (nee Pawlak) Eilers. Loving companion of Ellen Isaacson for over 40 years. Dearest brother of Michael (Nancy) Eilers, Monica (late Thomas) Kilian, Mary Rose (John) Zawislak, Ronald (Joan) Eilers, Nicholas (Julie) Eilers, Rita (late Donald) Davis, the late Bonita Eilers, Patrick Eilers and Jerome (Joy) Eilers. Fond uncle and great uncle of many nieces and nephews. Andy had a very energetic childhood, much to his mother’s chagrin, which included bringing home snakes and frogs and letting them escape somewhere in the house. However, he was also “Outstanding Newspaper Boy” in 1960. He even used his paperboy salary to buy a new bike. He was educated in the Catholic schools in Muskegon but decided after graduation that he did not want to work in the factories there so when he heard about a technical program in Chicago that would train him to be a tool and die maker, he jumped at the chance. He was in that trade until 1984, with a brief hiatus in the US Army from 1969 to 1971. Then after going to school part time using the GI Bill, he graduated from the University of Illinois, Chicago in 1984 and decided to put his electrical engineering degree to good use. It was on to Underwriters Laboratories where he worked with the group evaluating gas pumps used in gas stations. That was not all he worked on but that’s what he used to talk about the most. Being a devoted brother and uncle, Andy always made sure he traveled back to Michigan for family events, including braving treacherous snowstorms in order to show up for Thanksgiving and Christmas family parties. Andy was never all work and no play. He took up skiing for fun and did ski trips with the boys until the oil embargo in 1973. After that he was looking for a ski club and became an active member of Chicago Friars Ski Club for the rest of his life. He also liked running, weight training, cross-country skiing, swimming, tennis, camping and a lot of walking, mostly after his hip surgeries and retirement. A memorial service will be held March 7th from 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM at TOHLE FUNERAL HOME 4325 W. Lawrence Ave. Inurnment Private. Info available at 773-685-4400 or tohlefuneralhome.com
