Fred Babsin, 81, lived a full life. Beloved husband, father, older brother, uncle, grandfather, friend. Successful business owner. Avid theater and movie goer. Proud Chicagoan. Kind and generous man. Frederick Harvey Babsin was born in 1937 to Eleanor and Samuel Babsin in Washington D.C., shortly thereafter moving to the Chicago area, where Fred would reside for the rest of his life. Fred attended Roosevelt H.S., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Roosevelt University ('58), graduating with a BS in Commerce. In 1971, Fred and his partner, Meyer Rosen, opened Meyer Fredericks, an advertising agency, in downtown Chicago. Meyer Fredricks would remain in business for over 35 years, employing over 150 people and serving well over a hundred clients. Fred married Sandee Stickles in 1966. Marc was born in 1969 and Jennifer in 1972. Fred and Sandee raised their kids in Glenview, sending Marc and Jennifer to Glenbrook South High School. Fred golfed most Sundays, traveled extensively with Sandee, volunteer ushered at dozens of theatrical productions every year, watched a lot of Cubs and Bears games, and served in leadership positions for his synagogue's Men's Club, his high school reunion committee (many times), homeowners associations, and a retirement organization that he co-founded. Fred will be remembered as an optimist who was thoughtful and kind and engaged with life. He touched many, and he will be missed.
