Regiment Icon St. Angel A Friend, Mentor To Many

| |

David St. Angel, who many described as a big man with an even bigger heart, spent many years as a member of Phantom Regiment’s visual staff and management team. But it was his love for those who were part of Phantom Regiment that so many people remember most.

“I remember when I came back in 1992 to march, every time I’d walk into Roosevelt he was there to greet us one and all,” said Tracy (Supan) Fritzsching, who marched in the color guard in 1990 and 1992-95. “He had a stern voice but always a welcoming big hug. You could tell he loved the drum corps, and he loved the people that made up the drum corps. He took the time to invest in all of us whether it was just a moment to notice our arrival by saying hi or by lending an ear and helping you achieve your dream of marching in the Phantom Regiment.”

David died Tuesday, Sept. 25 at his home in Rockford. He was 67.
