OBITUARIES:  (published April 11, 2019)

Fred Regnery
Fred Regnery, 69, of Westmont died March 16, 2019.
   Freddy was born in 1950 in Hinsdale to Frederick and Verla Regnery.
   Fred was a lifelong Chicagoan who loved all aspects of the Chicago business, sports and social community. His biggest passion was people. He had a curiosity in each person’s story no matter their life circumstances. He embraced and appreciated people’s quirks and approached each relationship with a kindness that reflected his fundamental interest in learning about others. A constant prankster, Fred’s humor reminded others not to take life too seriously. He always considered himself the luckiest guy he knew for his family’s well-being and for the close relationships he made throughout his life. He loved his family and was more proud of his three children than any other accomplishment in his life. Fred’s favorite place to enjoy his friends and family was over a beer and a sunset at his Michigan home. His humble, genuine and passionate approach to life will be greatly missed but honored by those close to him.
   Fred was preceded in death by his father, Frederick, and his mother, Verla.
   He is survived by his wife, Ying; his former spouse and mother of his three children, Margaret “Peggy” Austin; his three children, Frederick (Elizabeth) of Hinsdale, Geoffrey (Kerstin) of Hinsdale and Lindsay (Brady); his eight grandchildren; and his sisters, Gretchen Wallerich and Lynn Regnery.
   Services are private.
   Sullivan Funeral Home in Hinsdale handled the arrangements.

Nathaniel Henry Whiteside III
Nathaniel “Nate” Henry Whiteside III, of Glen Lake, Mich., formerly of Hinsdale, passed away Jan. 15, 2019, in Kirkland, Wash., of complications of dementia.
   Nate, 89, was born in 1929 in Chicago to Nathaniel Henry Whiteside Jr. and Mildred (Gould) Whiteside. He grew up in Hinsdale and attended high school at Kimball Union Academy in Meriden, N.H., where he was involved in skiing and the Outing Club. The family spent summers at Glen Lake and, in 1950, with his sister as crew, he accomplished a perfect racing season, losing no races, and achieved recognition as the Snipe Class International high point winner.
   At Middlebury College he was involved with the cross-country ski team and the Outdoor Club, especially enjoying the “Woodsmen’s Weekends” where he learned life-long skills. He graduated in 1952 with a bachelor’s in economics.
   He then enlisted in U.S. Navy officer’s training and served aboard the USS Hanna, a destroyer escort, as a gunnery officer at the end of the Korean War until December 1955. During his service Nate met Mary Herrington in San Diego, and they married on Aug. 20, 1955, in Bad Axe, Mich.
   Nate began his professional life in the municipal bond and securities printing industry, joining his father at Northern Bank Note Co. in Chicago. In 1972, he purchased Midwest Bank Note Co., in Plymouth, Mich. His son, Jim, joined him in the business and together they, along with older son Charlie’s consultation, adjusted to economic influences that also included other printing specialties.
   Nate and Mary lived in Hinsdale and in Northville, Mich. raising their children while also spending vacation time at Glen Lake. In retirement, they spent time in Florida on Sanibel Island and later Boca Grande. His calm, gentle nature, warm smile, honesty, fairness, love of the outdoors, knowledge and eagerness to teach others, created wonderful memories of a great man who will be missed by many.
   Nate is survived by his wife of 63 years, Mary; three children, Martha (Paul), Charles (Laura) and James (Kathryn); six grandchildren, Jennifer, Sarah, Ashley (Ted), Nate, John and Charles; a great-granddaughter, Leiliana; his siblings, Barbara W. Schilling and Peter A. Whiteside; his nephews Bill, Brent and Cory; and many other family members and friends.
   A memorial celebration of Nate’s life will be at 1:30 p.m. July 22 at the Glen Lake Yacht Club. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the Glen Lake Yacht Club, P.O. Box 463, Glen Arbor, MI 49636.
