New Lenox

Frank R. Scagnelli, who everyone knew as Bob, passed away peacefully at home following a valiant battle with cancer on February 6, 2024. He was born April 29, 1945, in Joliet, IL, the son of the late Ernest “Guy” and Grace (nee Short) Scagnelli.

Bob is survived by his wife of 54 years, Judi; children, Michael (Joie Ziller) Scagnelli of Wilmington, IL, and Anthony (the late Jamie) Scagnelli of Minooka, IL, grandchildren Breanna (Kyle) McNally of Channahon, IL, and Luca Scagnelli of Minooka, IL, and great grandchildren Wyatt and Maddie McNally. 

Bob was preceded in death by a daughter, Alicia Stolarek; his parents; a brother Ernest (JuJu) and his sisters Helen Jugenitz and Teresa Shaughnessy.

Bob was born and raised in Lockport, IL and went on to work for EJ&E Railroad in Waukegan, IL where he met the love of his life, Judi (nee Horton). They moved to New Lenox, IL in 1975 where they have lived since. He golfed in Thristy Night League at Woodruff for 20 years and Monday league at Wedgwood. He was an avid bowler for 50+ years, bowling at several bowling centers in many leagues over the years. After his retirement in 2005 from EJ&E, he and his bride traveled the US golfing and gambling. Bob will be remembered for his love of old cars and rock-n-roll, especially Elvis, The Beatles, and Motown.

The family would like to thank Three Oaks Hospice and the New Lenox Fire Protection District for their care. Donations in Bob’s name can be directed to either of those organizations.

Cremation rites have been accorded. All services and interment will be private.
