Ron Santo Funeral Information and a Photo Essay Celebrating His Life.


One of the Good Guys.
Chicago is a little sadder these days with the passing of Cubs Legend Ronald Edward Santo on December 2, 2010.  It is hard to put into words what Santo meant not just to this city but to mankind.  He will be missed.

A Celebration of Ron’s Life.
The Cubs have released the public and private visitation schedule for Santo.

Public Visitation:  The Public Visitation will take place Thursday, December 9, 2010 from 4p.m. to 11p.m. at  Holy Name Cathedral, 735 N. State St., Chicago.
Fans will enter the church through the main State Street entrance and exit through the Superior Street side. A line will form heading north on State St. toward Chicago Ave.  Because the Cathedral must close its doors by midnight, fans are asked to be in line by 11p.m.

Funeral Service and Procession: The Funeral Service for family and friends will be held Friday, December 10, 2010 at Holy Name Cathedral, 735 N. State St., Chicago.
(Public seating is very limited, if any at all). The funeral service will commence at 10 am and will include eulogies by Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts, Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig and WGN Radio’s Pat Hughes.

Funeral Procession.

Following the services at Holy Name Cathedral, the funeral procession will embark on a route towards Wrigley Field. The procession will leave Holy Name Cathedral and drive north on State Street, east on Chicago Street, south on Michigan Avenue, turn around in front of Wrigley Building before pausing in front of WGN Radio (Tribune Tower), north on Michigan Avenue to inner Lake Shore Drive, west on Division Street, north on LaSalle Drive, north on Clark Street, north on Sheffield Street, west on Addison Street followed by a lap around Wrigley.
