Frederick F. Eichhorn Jr., a retired attorney who served as president of the Indiana State Bar Association in the 1980s has died.

Born in 1930 in Gary, Ind., Eichhorn earned his law degree from Indiana University and served in the United States Air Force before joining the Hammond practice of Lawyer Schroer & Eichhorn in the 1960s. The firm was reconstituted as Eichhorn Eichhorn & Link in 1978, and he served as the firm’s managing partner from 1977 until 1994. He practiced with his brother, William.

He retired in 1996 and moved to Bloomington with his wife, Judy. Eichhorn was a member of the Indiana University Board of Trustees from 1990 to 2005 and served as board president from 2002 to 2005.

Eichhorn served as general counsel to Northern Indiana Public Service Co. from 1977 to 1992, as a police commissioner for the city of Gary, and was elected president of the ISBA in 1985.

A celebration in his honor will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 219 E. Fourth Street, Bloomington, Ind.

A statement on Eichhorn & Eichhorn’s website says, “We will miss Fred’s wit, warmth, and the gentlemanly way in which he conducted himself within and without the firm.”
