Former Brookfield police officer

Daniel Gerard Fedorski, 47, a former resident of North Riverside and Forest Park who served as a police officer in Brookfield and as a homicide detective in Aurora, died Sept. 30, 2022.

Mr. Fedorski’s children say that everywhere he went he would make a new friend. He had a heart for fathers and encouraged others to invest in their children. He was bold for Christ and never hesitated to share his faith and lead others to know Jesus. 

One of his favorite sayings was “you can take anything away from your kids, as long as you replace it with yourself.” Every spare moment Mr. Fedorski had was spent with his family, whether it was golfing with his boys on Friday mornings or going shopping with his girls. He loved music, watching sports, the 4th of July, and all things American.

His wife, Dana, and the children will forever treasure his sense of humor and unending love for them.

Mr. Fedorski was a devoted husband to Dana (nee Brosseau) and a proud, loving father of Abigail, Madison, Daniel, Davis, Benjamin, Samuel, Caroline, and Camden. He was the son of the late Eugene and Mary Fran (nee Halpin) Fedorski; the brother of Jim (Kim) Fedorski, Maggie (Bob) Filec and Tim (Amy) Fedorski; the uncle of Emily (Jeremy) Bernas, Robert (Sarah) Filec, Frank (Coco) Filec, Mary Filec, Kenny and Katie, Meghan, Hayley, Will and Brynn Fedorski; the great uncle of Francesca and Nora Bernas; the son-in-law of Mike and Mary Beth Brosseau; a brother-in-law to Katie (Matt) Taylor, Mike (Annie) Brosseau, Jen (Travis) Traub, Liz (Greg) Koch; and an uncle to Allison and Meadow Taylor, Maggie Traub, Brady, Bree, and Barrett Koch.

A service in Illinois will be held at a future date.
