Obituary for Craig James Freiburg

Craig J. Freiburg, age 40, of Aurora, formerly of Naperville, IL passed away on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at Edward Hospital after suffering a heart attack.

Craig leaves surviving his parents, Jim and Carolyn Freiburg of Naperville, IL, his brother and sister-in-law, Jeffrey (Mia nee Pennington) Freiburg of Yorkville, IL, his sister and brother-in-law Tracy (Brian) Cottrell of Plainfield, Craig’s nephews and niece, Jackson and Easton Freiburg, Bentley and Kendall Cottrell, and Craig’s grandmother, Patricia Freiburg of Silvis, IL and, of course, his favorite canine friend, Coyota.

Craig so loved life, his family, his friends, sports, scuba diving, volleyball, music, movies, books, karaoke, and trivia contests. He loved to argue about politics and everything else, but was always respectful of the opinions of others, although in the end you either had to agree with Craig or just give up.

Our family has been overwhelmed with the outpouring of tears, thoughts and prayers of our extended family and friends and the many friends of Craig, all whom he so enjoyed being with.

Craig was born July 6, 1978 in Palos Heights, IL. He graduated from Naperville Central High School in 1996. Craig earned a B.A. degree in History from Northern Illinois University and also studied accounting at College of DuPage.

Craig was employed at the Hyatt Regency in Lisle, IL as the Senior Accounting Manager.
