A judge Thursday named the widow of the late Eagles guitarist and co-founder Glenn Frey as the executor of his estate and also admitted the musician’s will to probate.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William Barry granted Cynthia Millican Frey’s petition without any opposition from third parties.
Frey, 67, died in January 2016. The will identifies assets of just $100,000, but also lists a family trust that may hold most of Frey’s financial holdings.
The couple were married for 25 years and had three children. Frey died of complications of rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia. He had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in the two months prior to his death.
Frey was an original member and guitarist of the 1970s band whose hits included the highly successful “Hotel California” and “Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975),” an album that Rolling Stone magazine recognized as the best selling album of the 20th century in the U.S.
The Eagles recently announced a North American concert tour in 2018 with new band members Vince Gill and Frey’s son, Deacon Frey.
