Frank O. Llewellyn, 92, a resident of Western Springs who served as a Riverside police officer for more than three decades, died Aug. 30, 2020.

Mr. Llewellyn served in the U.S. Army and was hired as a police officer in Riverside in April 1957. He retired in June 1991 at the rank of lieutenant after 34 years of service to the village.

"He was a kind and compassionate individual who always put the residents first," said Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel, who was hired in 1984 and served with Mr. Llewellyn. "He was very well liked by former and current employees."  

He loved the Cubs, taking cross-country trips and golfing. Above all, he was devoted to his family.

Mr. Llewellyn was the husband of the late Rosemarie T. Llewellyn (nee O'Connor) for 60 years; the father of Patty (Patrick) Bresnahan, Joan Burns and Ann Llewellyn; the grandfather of Cara and Aidan Bresnahan and Frank and Connor Burns; the brother of late Charles (Mary) Llewellyn; the brother-in-law of the late Jack (Jerrie) and the late Joseph (late Patricia) O'Connor; and an uncle and friend of many. 

A funeral Mass was celebrated Sept. 12 at St. Francis Xavier Church in LaGrange. 

Memorials are appreciated to Twin Hearts Autism Foundation, P.O. Box 1923, Frankfort, Illinois, 60423 or 

Hallowell and James Funeral Home, Countryside, handled arrangements.
