Frederick R. Luscombe

Frederick Ronald Luscombe, 84, of Elmhurst, IL, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 19, 2020.

Fred was born in 1935 to Fred and Elsie Luscombe. He grew up in Crystal Lake, IL, with a sister, Grace who preceded him in death. After graduating from Crystal Lake High School, Fred went on to the University of Illinois-Champaign, where he studied Music Education, and where he met his wife, Lucretia. He earned a Master's Degree in Music from DePaul University.

Fred will be fondly remembered as a trombonist and founder of Luscombe Music. He inspired many musicians from the Chicagoland area with his witty sense of humor, his kindness and his willingness to help. He was a member of the Chicago Federation of Musicians Local 10-208. He was also an active member of Visitation Catholic Church.

Fred was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Fred was the loving husband of 63 years to Lucretia and proud father of Greg (Beth), Laura (Stephen), and Katherine (Brian). He was also unendingly proud of his grandchildren, Michele (Bryan), Jenna, Lisa (Andrew), Sarah, Julia (Anthony), Matthew, Emma, Abby and William, as well as great-grandchildren, Owen, Ahnikka and Jase.

Services will be announced once the family has determined a date. Please check Elmhurst Funeral Home - THE AHLGRIM CHAPEL or call 630-834-3515 for information about the memorial mass.

My sincerest condolences to the family on the passing of Fred Luscombe. I remember him fondly, as he had provided instruments to the students of my elementary school band programs during my early teaching years. Eternal rest grant unto Fred, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Gregory Stepanek
