Elroy Sandquist III(1953 - 2013)

Sandquist III, Elroy "Sandy" C. Was born October 19, 1953 in Chicago to the late Elroy and Sally, (nee Dunham), Sandquist. He went home to the Lord after a brief illness, on Saturday, July 6, 2013 in the loving arms of his wife and daughters, surrounded by family and dear friends. Sandy was the beloved husband of Colleen Sandquist, (nee Molohon), and dear father to Kylen and Kara Sandquist; He is also survived by his siblings, Deirdre, Ellen, and Peter Sandquist; his parents-in-law Patrick and Peggy Molohon; his sisters-in-law Carolyn (Frank) Schiefelbein, Cathy (Joe) D'Alessandro and Courtney (Dennis) Bond; dear uncle to many; and countless friends whose lives he touched in many ways throughout his life. Sandy was a proud graduate of Francis W. Parker School, Brown University, and Northwestern University School of Law. In addition to his law practice, Sandy graced the stage as a musician, songwriter, actor, and most recently the founder of the Fremont Street Theater Company, a 501(C) 3 organization. He was an active member of Holy Family Parish in Inverness where his beautiful, rich voice brought inspiration to all. Visitation 3-8 PM Thursday and 9:00 to 10:00AM Friday at Holy Family Catholic Community, 2515 W. Palatine Road, Inverness, IL following with Mass at 10:30AM. Interment St. Michael the Archangel, Palatine, IL. Sandy's dream was to further the arts for children and the community. In lieu of flowers and in support of Sandy's love of the arts, donations can be made to the Fremont Street Theater Company, 800 E. NW Hwy, Ste. 960, Palatine, IL 60067.
