Sincere condolences to the loss of a truly sincere Christian, inspirational man, whom I have known and admired for 35 years. To me he was known as "Dad," but he was just a good father figure since my dad had been gone for 35.years. He indeed always had a smile and story to share with me no matter even if our chance meetings were often or few and far between over the years. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten. God speed to his eternal rest. He deserved it. Dawn

My sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Sheridan. I have been taking communion to him at Concordia on Wednesdays and we would visit for awhile. I never met any of his family but in a small way I know each and every one of you. We would talk endlessly about how he met the love of his life. He shared with me his stories of how he was in the Air Force and about his dream to become a pilot. He talked about his early days, his job at Montgomery Wards and then Sears. He told me stories of him and his buddies golfing. He talked about his brothers and of course his daughters and their families. He was meticulous with names and dates and little details. Sometimes, well actually most times the stories were the same and he hasn't remembered that he's told me the same stories time and time again but I acted like it was the first time I heard them. He was so dear and I loved his smile. He looked forward to our Wednesday visits and I did too. I am going to miss him terribly. I take comfort that I was able to bring the precious body of Christ to him.

 

Pastor Brigitte Smith posted on 7/2/22

Our condolences and prayers for the family of Paul Huddleston. It was an honor, privilege and pleasure, for my son A.T. and I to get to know, “Mr. H.” and Mindy.

May the Angels of Heaven welcome you to peaceful rest with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Smith Family

Rich and Ingrid Dubberke posted on 6/30/22

Rich and Art were roommates in Evanston from 1964 until 1968, the year we got married. Art became a beloved member of our family. When our kids were little they believed that their shoes came from Art and Vose Bootery like Christmas presents come from Santa Claus. Even after his retirement and move back to Springfield we stayed in regular touch, calling on birthdays, anniversaries and major holidays. The last time we talked was on my birthday March 15. We were shocked to hear of his passing after returning from a European vacation. Every time we visited our son's family in St. Louis we would stop for brunch with Art in Springfield at either the White Hen or Cracker Barrel. Art was a fountain of knowledge when it came to opera and classical music in general. He also taught himself several languages: German, French, Russian. We will miss him terribly. Our visits to St. Louis will not be the same. May he rest in peace.

Tim Call posted on 6/30/22

In 2005 I became Nia’s next door neighbor and from then until I moved from Springfield in 2020 our relationship grew closer each passing year. When her husband passed, myself and other neighbors became her support group, checking in on her almost daily and assisting her in whatever she needed. I was her handyman of sorts and confidant. After I left we would keep in touch over the phone (she loved to talk). A very special woman to me, who I will always remember as being kind, thoughtful and caring. I say goodbye to my friend and neighbor Nia. Eman, your loss is everyone’s loss who knew and loved her as you have. My sincere condolences to you and your family, aunts, uncles and cousins.

My condolences to Eman and siblings. You never really know the impact that you have on others. This was the case with Nia who was my graduate advisor as a then student at WIU. She was so supportive, understanding and inspiring in her role. We later reconnected and I would see Nia at our sorority conferences. She was so influential in any role that she assumed. She was beautiful on so many levels and she will be greatly missed! Rest well dear Nia!

Dear Eman and family, Please accept my sincere sympathies on Nia's passing. I often encountered her in the Capitol Building during her time with the Illinois State Senate staff. Nia always had a beautiful smile on her face and was never too busy to talk with me. Her engaging personality, the respect she garnered from her co-workers, her knowledge and wisdom of the Illinois legislative process--these and so much more are things I will remember of Nia. But most of all, she was unselfish, charitable, forgiving, and had a heart larger than the State Capitol. When you were around her, you always felt better about yourself and the world--such a rare gift. May God bless you, your family and Nia now and always. Sleep in peace Nia and Godspeed. John Headrick Springfield, IL

Chuck's Memorial As we grow older, we grow apart. But we will always remember the past of friends and people we met on the way. Chuck will be deeply missed as a friend, co-worker, boss and male business owner. He led many people in the right direction in life. We met at school. Some of the fun activities we enjoyed were hunting, canoeing, practice shooting off the old bridge, working with his Dad, Harold, and racing. When Chuck went to college, I went into the Army. After I got out of the service, Chuck was married and I met my future wife. Chuck was our best man for our wedding fifty-four years ago. We continued our friendship as couples. We played cards; went horseback riding and just hung out together. I joined the fire dept. after we got married. I worked for Merrill Contractors part-time at his new business in Lincoln. After several years, Chuck moved his business to Springfield where I continued to work for him part-time for thirty-eight years. Chuck will be greatly missed. I loved him. He was my best friend.

I'm still in shock that I won't ever see your face or hear your voice again. I don't know how I'm gonna go on now that my big sister is gone. As I child, I saw you as my protector and as we aged, we became great friends. We were so much alike, as we both loved our kids and grandkids with every bit of our souls. We loved our jobs and went in each day with a positive attitude so we could give our best self to our coworkers and our students/residents. We both knew it was important, because if we just made one person feel better, it was worth every hug, conversation and/or smile we shared. I miss you more than you know and I love you so very much. Rest In Peace my dear sister/friend!! *NOTE. I'm so proud of Brian (Bethany) and Tori (Sherry) and how they have stepped up and made decisions that they knew you wanted. I'm sure you are proud of them too. I know I have another Angel watching over me and my kids and grandkids. Never can have too many angels!!

Oh, the memories I have growing up in the Merrill household. I was blessed to spend endless weekends and vacations with him and the family. Carla and I probably gave him a gray hair or two, he loved playing Aprils Fools Day jokes on us, the many weekends we spent driving to dirt track to watch Sprint car racing, he did love the sport! I'll cherish the memories. Hugs to the Carla and Rachelle and his family.

How to begin all the wonderful years our families had together, with brownies in your home to playing in the back yard. Our neighborhood was a wonderful place to grow up and “Doris” Mrs Stolle was one that was always so friendly and inviting. May God bless you with peace, love and comfort at this time of loss. I’m sorry I’m unable to come to the service my husband and I have moved in with my mother in law, in Decatur, she has dementia and can’t be left alone. God bless you. ❤️❤️

It has been wonderful to have known you for many years. I will always cherish the conversations that we had when I came to visit you at The State Farm Insurance Office in Sherman,Illinois. You always were so friendly and loved to talk about our family's and of course the Cubs. One of the best memories I had is when I came to see you and I asked for your permission to ask Erin to the Chicago Cubs National League Champion Series Game 5 where the Cubs Won to go to the World Series..That was so awesome and very memorable. I will always have a place in my heart for you and your family ❤️

Connie had a gift of remembering dates (birthday, anniversaries, and when her workers started at DSCC). She loved her family and enjoyed talking about them as if her co-workers knew them. She had the same job at DSCC for 30 years (filing) and never once complained about it. She took excellent care of her stepmother until she was not physical able to keep it up. She had a good handle on her finances and was very faithful to anything that was assigned to her to complete. Connie, you will be missed and thank you for your friendship and concern for me.

My friendship with Larry goes back 20+ years since we met at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. It didn’t take us long to figure out that we were both transplanted Buckeyes; thus began ongoing discussions about Ohio State, The Browns, The Tribe, Cedar Point, and many other native Ohioan interests. Over the years we settled into a groove of meeting for lunch several times a week; a short list of our favorites included Longhorn, Bob Evans, Smokey Bones, & Baker’s Square for a slice of pie on Wednesdays. Topics ranged from Faith, Family, politics, current events, sports, & favorite shows to his passion for Jeff Gordon & NASCAR. Everything I know about racing I learned from him. My friend Larry was a man of simple pleasures: food, fellowship, and his love for his family. These were balanced by his passion for learning & teaching, as well as a love for the physical exertion of mowing and yard work. I always looked forward to our time together, having some laughs, griping about concerns, and processing life. I will greatly miss him. Blessings and comfort to Susan, Kim, Natalie, Jay, Shawn, Nathan, & family during this time. I’m comforted by the knowledge that I’ll see him again with Jesus in Paradise.

My condolences to all of Sherry’s family. I knew here from Daily Bread. I thought of her occasionally and wondered how she was doing. Her oldest grandson and my oldest grandson were born around the same time and we use to talk about their antics and how much we loved them. I’ve often told the story of how she trained a squirrel to eat from her hand. Hope your memories get you thru this hard time and always give you comfort.

I'm glad that I was blessed to get to know Connie and will always remember her fondly.

Mom, This year has been extremely difficult on us all without you. I often wish my love could have healed you. I never truly realized how much you revolved around my daily life, until you were no longer here. You are missed more than words could ever say. I miss laying up in your bed with you, telling you about my day, hearing your voice, holding your hand. Most importantly, I am missing the memories we had yet to make together. You were supposed to be here to meet my boyfriend, walk me down the aisle, watch me get married, & meet my children. I feel so cheated no longer having you present. Although, I’m thankful for the 24 years of life you did give me. The world doesn’t shine as bright without you no longer in it. Since you’ve left, you’ve missed Ace getting her title in dock diving and #4 rank in the U.S. I got a job coaching recreational gymnastics at the NEW Downtown YMCA, which was finally built. I love working with the kids and watching them learn a new skill each week. I’m planning to work at Camp Compass again this coming summer. Robert finished at MTI + got a job as a phlebotomist. Robert + Lacee had their offer accepted on a house, which they will close on in July. I hope I’m making you proud and love you to the moon and back. Love, Your baby girl

Bill was a good friend, as well as a special person, that I knew from 2005 to 2022. His keen intelligence and sense of humor, his sincerity, and his affection, which persevered in spite of the adversity he experienced, endeared him to me throughout the years. Although Bill did not have much quality of life in his last years, he enhanced my quality of life, and he taught me about facing each day with courage, faith, and dignity. I feel fortunate to have had his companionship.

Though both of our parents were native to Springfield, our family moved to California when we were all still young. Over the years we had only a few opportunities to visit our extended family in Illinois. I treasure the memories I do have and particularly enjoyed the visits with Bill and his family. Though he seemed shy, I found him to be quite clever and fun to be around. Wishing we had shared more time together ... Rest in peace cousin Bill.

Keep in mind, I was not the brightest student and usually took the least path of resistance. I knew Bill back when we attended Dubois Elementary and Grant Middle school. Bill was an excellent student. Bill loved math and science. He was always kind to me and enjoyed visiting when our paths crossed. Okay, new story to share. I’ve been keeping this a secret for a long while now. In middle school, we worked on a science project together. Basically he did the work. I did not comprehend what was going on. Or, I was just lazy. He saved me from a failing grade. He was not happy with me ;but, I remembered how much I appreciated him helping me. A year or so later, in middle school. Bill’s Science teacher approached my English class. They had a situation where Bill’s science group was accused of copying another group’s science project. The Science and English coordinated an idea to hold a hurry of his peers. To decide,if Bills group was innocent or guilty. If guilty, Bill would get an “F” on the project which was worth a great deal for his class. I was chosen to be on the Jury. A trial was held. We heard details from both science groups and went to deliberate. The prosecuting team (lasted a few days) and they had plenty of evidence against Bill’s group. It did not look good for his group. The first group vote was 11 to 1 to convict Bill’s group Guilty. I was lone the vote holding out. I knew in my heart that Bill was too smart and too kind to do that. I did not believe the other group, it was just hearsay. Bill had been kind to me several times in the past. He covered me when I was at my lowest. I owed it too him. It took me about a week to convince the other jury members. I just did not believe it was right to give someone F. Definitely not Bill. I never told Bill or anyone until now. I have a special place in my heart for him. His acts of kindness to me will never be forgotten.

I ran into him a long while ago and introduced home to my twin boys. Had a nice visit. He will be truly missed. He came from such a nice family.

Teri was always kind to my daughter Zoe, spouse Cynthia, and to me. We often disagreed, but she was never rude. Stubborn? Dedicated? Persistent? Un-yielding in her view of ethics and morality? Oh, yes! Our world was brighter (and surely more lively and interesting) because of her. Rest in peace, Old Lion.

Terri was one of my dearest work friends at the DDS in the late 1970’s. Our closed contact ended when I moved out of state in 1979, but we would have lunch whenever I was in town. We connected on many levels, finally losing touch over the years as our lives took us in different directions, but I always remembered her with the greatest regard. She was simply a joy to know. I wish you all peace at this time, knowing that the great love that surrounded her surrounds you still.

Sorry the photo didn't load right. Not sure how to fix that. Anyway, we planned a little luncheon for Pat to celebrate her retirement. We found a fluffy purple bathrobe and had everyone write a note to her on green fabric. Some of the notes were hilarious. It was one of those "you had to be there moments." She had big plans of lounging around during her newly discovered free time however it didn't last long. The call for service awoke her from her bathrobe induced slumber and she went on back to work on a special contract.

 

Jamie Ursch posted on 5/14/22

Pat was my supervisor for 12 years. However, she treated me as a colleague and was such a wonderful mentor for nearly half of my career with the state. She had an amazing ability to manage all of the personalities in our bureau. Trust me when I say that none of us were shrinking violets. She was such an effective advocate for those who were underserved. I learned so much from her. Pat will be truly missed. My deepest condolences to her family.

Susan Wohl posted on 5/11/22

After working with Pat day in and day out for 9 years I was spoiled. Although, as she always liked to remind me she was 6 months younger than me, I actually always felt that she was my mentor. She wrote beautifully and very cogently and spoke to any size group convincingly, without notes and only referred to bullet points occasionally. She said what so many of us were thinking only she said it more eloquently. She made state and federal policies and legislation understandable to those around her. She stood up for those who were disadvantaged and found themselves on the margins of society. She was brave ... And she did all this with a mischievous sense of humor. I have never laughed so much or so consistently in a work environment. Although it's been over 30 years since we worked together my years of working with Pat were the highlight of my working years. She was so proud of her children and her grandchildren. I can only imagine the loss her family feels and my heart goes out to them.

To Rich's family. I feel like I've known Rich my whole life. He and my brother Tommy were best friends. Rich would always be at our family get togethers to share laughs, drink a beer..or two, and to enlighten us with his quick wit and humor! (And boy did he have quick wit and comebacks that would bring tears from laughing so hard! Tommy can't be there and he asked me to stand in for the Knox"s to show our respect and the love we all had for Rich. Unfortunately I too cannot make it but please know Rich was loved by all of us and was considered a brother to our family! Again, please know since we are unable to be there in person, we are there in Spirit. Whenever you think about Rich a chuckle immediately followed. Those are the memories we will cherish... Most Sincerely & and with love, Marcia Kay Knox sister of Tommy Knox

I knew Rodger in the mid-80's when we both worked at Human Services Center in Peoria. I remember his quirky sense of humor, his excellent, somewhat sarcastic wit, and his kindness. He was a gentle man. Multi-talented, a deep thinker, a lover of beer. He understood the ironies of life and approached them with compassionate humor. His ability to reach people at a therapeutic yet human level was something I always appreciated. Even though we'd lost touch years ago, he'd pop up in my memories always prompting a feeling of warmth and happiness. Rodger was one of those people you just carried around with you in your head despite him being a rather quiet, unassuming person. Every interaction I had with him was positive A rare spirit who left things, and people, better than they were before.

Some of my VERY BEST memories include Rich. Witty, aware, unpretenious with more than a little bit of Desperado in German sensibilities.Hard worker, proficient partier, accomplished outdoorsman. One of the darn few who ALWAYS got the punchline. Until that time Eustis.

We are sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. When I told our sons they all said what a sweet woman she was. They remember her as the resident surrogate grandmother on the block. Always ready to listen to their stories and share a cookie with them. We also remember her kindness, for example when our son was laid up in a body cast and she brought him a toy/trinket every day! She will be missed.

Dear Joy and family, I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother, Wauline. I came to the house back in the early 90s and gave Ricky and Joy piano lessons! I saw firsthand each week when I would come to the house, the value and great importance that music played in life. Not only in her life but in the lives of her children! Wauline made sure that her family understood how music intertwines within our lives and assists in our developing the many aspects of our lives. Discipline, self-control, math, music, the spirit, emotions, and the depth they contribute in all of our lives! She made sure everyone received what they needed! She was an amazing woman of independence and a gifted musician! She had a knack for working with children and by doing so she enriched her own family! I’ll never forget when we had the piano recital at the church. Wauline made sure that both Ricky and Joy were there and participated in the event! Wauline was so very proud of her family!! She loved you kids and made sure each of you received the tools, support, and constant encouragement to help each of you soar like the Eagle in your lives! There was no doubt that God had placed us together! I learned as much as I shared each week when I visited the house! I just want to let you know how much your mother meant to me! And I saw how much each of you meant to her! She was a true follower of Jesus Christ and a wonderful and amazing individual! May God comfort you and give you peace during this difficult time and may He wrap His holy angels around you to give you peace.

I worked with Johnny for 8 years at Walmart. I remember I would be going in the morning to start my shift and he would be ending his shift and he would jump on his mini bike and say something funny to me and head home. There’s been a couple of times when my husband Tad would come in to shop and for some reason or another Johnny needed a ride home and Tad was more than happy to take him home. Johnny and I would talk about things that where funny or sad. Johnny will be missed but not forgotten.

He knew my brother and I before we were born, and took my dad's place in giving me away at my wedding, 5 months after my dad had passed away from cancer. Each of my three children came to know and love Art, and my oldest daughter named her little son Arthur. Rest in peace in your glorious heavenly home, Art! You are greatly missed and will always be remembered with very much love!

She and Dean encouraged us in our church activities . As adult she was fun. I know she loved her family our country and our Lord Jesus Christ.Rip Janice thanks for the memories

I am shocked and stunned to have just learned of Ron's passing. I'm deeply sorry I didn't check sooner. Ron and I first met when he was a cook and I was a waiter at Boar's Head restaurant in Moline. We hit it off immediately, even though I was several years his senior. And throughout his journeys and accomplishments, we always would touch base. He helped me on a legal matter a few years ago and I would stay in touch after his diagnosis. I'd try to keep things positive and showed an interest in his treatment and the choices he faced. I hope I helped in some small way. I'm so sad to now see that I'd responded to his last message briefly but said I was outdoors at the moment and would respond with more later. Unfortunately I hadn't. I reached out a couple more times but didn't get a response. I guess I just didn't want to believe that he had succumbed. I thought maybe he just wasn't up for conversation. I'm so deeply saddened that he is no longer with us. He was a kind, very bright, droll, and witty man. He was a good man. And as others have noted, his daughter was his everything.

I worked in Directory Assistance with Greg for many years. I remember his generosity, whenever there was an office collection for someone in need, Greg gave generously. He was a lot of fun and I enjoyed working with him. I remember the tragic deaths of his brothers Kevin & Brian, too. Greg was special. We all loved him.

Aunt Nancy, You were such a sweet spirit. We had a special bond as long as I can remember. We will miss your hand made cards. Your infectious laugh reminded me of Grandma and Aunt Cleo. We will always remember the special days that we had with you and my Mom especially in the Valley. Rest In Peace dear sweet Aunt, until we meet again.

I loved Nancy’s article and I’m glad I had time for visitations on the phone with her. We always loved to reminisce. We laughed about growing up in Cut Bank as Jack Hughes lived right across the street from me. We all loved to play ball at the Anna Jeffries School playground which included soft ball & basketball, marbles, flying kites and roller skating on the sidewalk. We had our own recreation center on the North Side. I missed Jack and now I am sorry about Nancy leaving too. We were in the band together, loved our parades, riding the bus to “away” ball games was fun too. I am so lucky to have all her creative cards which I adored. Nancy & I “were home alone” as my husband was in a long term facility. We had long conversations and just enjoyed our friendship & remembered all our good times. Also, we were always so great full for our daughters. They made our world a beautiful place as we aged. I will miss Nancy—-but I’m glad we had time to laugh and bond our friendship from Cut Bank, Montana school years gone by. It was a good place to grow up and many of us found our future husbands there too. It’s been a good life!

I had the honor and pleasure to work along side Sandy for 15 years. She was a warm and caring person who gave her all to the job and was always there when I needed someone to talk to. She made work much more interesting with stories about her life and how things had changed at the Old State Capitol. She will be greatly missed by all of us who were lucky enough to have known her.

I worked with John for many years at Memorial Medical Center and had the fine privilege of being his friend. John was a thoughtful, kind and meticulous physician, always focused on doing his best for his patients, respectful to everyone who worked with him. However, what I will remember the most about John is his generosity, love for his family and wry sense of humor. The support he gave to Willie and his family in Nicaragua was amazing and his love for Lynda and his children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren is an inspiration. We've all lost John too soon. What an example in living a fine life he has left for us to remember and celebrate.

John was our Valedictorian and our quarterback. He played football, basketball, and baseball all four years of high school, yet managed to stay at the top of our class academically. I don't remember ever hearing a word of bragging from him. He just did his work and let his results speak for his accomplishments. In the spring of 11966 I was taking Animal Ecology at SIU-Carbondale. Our Professor, Dr. Gerschbacher, asked me if I knew a guy from Mt. Vernon named John Snodsmith. Dr. G said he didn't know John, but had been asked to write a letter of recommendation for John's application to Tulane Medical School. Dr. Gerschbacher wanted to know what I knew about John and whether a recommendation was deserved. I told Dr. G what I knew from being in classes with John for 6 years and assured him that a strong recommendation was deserved.

Plenty of happy memories of trips to visit family in Springfield. Staying with Aunt Lynda and Uncle John was always my favorite partly because it meant uncle John would take me fishing.

Siege was my workout buddy, confidant, beauty consultant and over a friend. In the Bible it states Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” We had many memories and I want her family to know that she loved deeply. I am grateful for her friendship and miss her. I thank GOD our FATHER for my friend, her love and her life.

It was an extremely sad day to hear of Judge Fines' passing. I worked for him in the Danville Bankruptcy Court from 2004 until his retirement. He was a role model for all of us and someone I strive to emulate by being a hard worker who is fair, honest and kind to everyone. He always referred to me as "young fella" which I look back fondly on and enjoyed the conversations we had about baseball, his time in the military and growing up in the country. The first time I met him I stood up to shake his hand and he said no need to stand up. That made a big impression on me. He was someone you respected and wanted to respect, but at the same was down to earth and treated you with just as much respect. He will be greatly missed and I will always remember the time I worked for him.

My sincere condolences to the family. I first met Judge Fines during his last holding of the position of U.S. Attorney for Central District of Illinois, as I then worked as a security officer at the federal courthouse. Later when he was appointed Bankruptcy Judge, I was a Deputy employed with the U.S. Marshals Service. I had intermittent contact with him, until I was assigned the position of Judicial Security Inspector in 2002 for the district. It was then I routinely met with Judge Fines and his staff regarding any security concerns. During my visits he was always be willing to sit down and discuss any concerns, but mostly we talked about the past and any news regarding the Central District of Illinois. He would tell me the stories of Judge Harlington Wood Jr, whom I also knew, and working at the DOJ. I enjoyed and looked forward to my visits and conversations, how he took the time to sit with me and was always personable, relaxing, and us recalling the days of our past. He is and will be sincerely missed.

I had the privilege to work for Judge Fines from 2007 until his retirement. Words cannot express the immense respect I have for him. Judge Fines had a passion for life and his family that cannot be described. Whether telling a story from his childhood or talking about his grandchildren there was a light in his eyes that shined so bright. He was an amazing, kind, and compassionate man that could also let you know you were out of line if necessary. He cared for his staff as much as we cared for him. My condolences to Olga and his family. The world has lost one of the best there was.

My sincere condolences to Judge Fines family. We were all blessed to known him. The Danville Bankruptcy team sure missed him when he retired. He was not only a hard working and fair judge, he was a great man. We were both big St. Louis Cardinals fans and would often talk about the team and him going to games with his son. I was lucky enough to attend the 2011 World Series game in St. Louis and watch game 6 of the series. The next day he called me to talk about the game. He said, "Hello this is Jerry". I am thinking ..I don't know any Jerry's. Then it hit me..it was Judge Fines.We both grew up with horse's. He told me when he lived in DC that one of the President's asked to borrow his horse to ride in a parade. He was a pleasure to talk to and I considered him my friend. May God bless his family. Rest in Heavenly peace Judge. What a wonderful life you lived!

My heartfelt condolences to Judge Fines’ family and friends. I first had the privilege of appearing before Judge Fines in 1991 as an attorney for the U.S. Trustee and continued up through his retirement from the bench. A sad day for all in the Danville division. I particularly admired his wit and sense of humor, and his loyalty to his staff in Danville. They were all so kind and courteous following his lead. Judge Fines was even tempered and respectful which is not always an easy task when an attorney gets ridiculously out of line. I recall, with a smile, one extremely rare occasion when Judge Fines had to get stern in the courtroom, but he still did it with tact, and a polite recommendation that the attorney take a few courses in ethics! I agree with so many of the comments already made. You all have perfectly described the man and Judge I was happy to have known. May he rest in peace.

I was saddened to hear of Judge Fines' passing. For many years, he came down to the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Illinois to help with the caseload. I had the opportunity to appear before him a number of times and he always was prepared, courteous, and genuinely interested in the matters before him. I remember in particular one case that I argued before Judge Fines in 2002 that involved some complex issues related to the Uniform Commercial Code and security interests in railroad cars. At hearing, Judge Fines not only understood the complicated facts in the case, but engaged both of the arguing attorneys in an in-depth discussion about a footnote in one of the cited precedents! His detailed ruling in the case resulted in a published opinion that continues to be cited on the subject of collateral description in security agreements. Judge Fines was a talented judge and it was a privilege to have the opportunity to appear before him. He will be missed and remain of blessed memory.

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Judge Fines. He was one of the first Judge's I had the pleasure of serving as a courtroom deputy for when he visited us in the Southern Illinois division. We have all missed him greatly since his retirement. My condolences to the whole family.

I am very sorry for the loss of a truly great man. I had the privilege of working for and with the Judge for 26 years in the Court in Danville. Not only was he a top notch Judge, he was an all around wonderful person. Judge Fines always had the backs of everyone who worked in the Court. There is no way I could ever thank him enough for the career opportunity that he made possible for me. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. He was more than a boss. He was my friend.

Jerry was the assistant to AA General Harlington Wood, U S Justice Department when I met him, as I was U S Secret Service in Washington, D. C. Between the three of us we coordinated security for many events including the Democratic and Republican Conventions in Miami, FL during the Vietnam era. Demonstrations were many,, but I must tell you how important it was to be working directly with the DOJ and the AG's Office. Jerry was very personable and I always felt very fortunate to both know him as a great friend and to work with him. It is difficult to describe what a wonderful, caring, talented person Jerry was through all the years working with him and our friendship up until this date. We have lost a true patriot and friend, but he is now in a much better place and no longer suffering. God Bless Olya and his family as you must be proud.

James Lewis posted on 2/16/22

Gerry is/was a wonderful human being, wonderful at what he did, with a few wonderfully human imperfections. In 1983, he hired me out of the Department of Justice--moving here was so good for myself and our family. Gerry treated the people in the Office--and the public--with great consideration, respect and fairness, and we all wanted to follow his lead and simply do what would be right. Gerry had many wonderful stories, often about people who took themselves too seriously, and we had so many wonderful discussions. I remember and can (and often do) repeat so much of what he said. His impact on me, on others: enormously helpful. I am so much better for having worked with him and listened to him, and I tried to follow his example when I too became United States Attorney (2010-2016). I will hold him dear to my heart as long as I live. Gerry: well done, my friend, your lived your life so well.

Jerry hired me as his first assistant US Attorney in January 1978. He welcomed me and my family to Springfield as we moved there, and that began a lifelong friendship that continued unti his death. I agree with everything posted by Ellen Schanzle-Haskins as to what he was like as the US attorney. He was a wise and compassionate mentor to us all. I continued to stay in touch with Jerry after moving from Springfield in February 1981. I considered him to be one of my closest and dearest friends for the rest of his life. When I learned of the illness which eventually took his life, I immediately flew to Springfield and visited him for about a week on June 2021. He and his lovely wife Olga welcomed me in their home and Jerry and I spent many hours reminiscing about our time together and about life in general. He spoke of his Christian faith and his belief in the eternal life that would follow. He knew he was dying but was not afraid to do so because of his faith. He spoke of his love of his family and all his friends and colleagues. After I returned home, we spoke on the phone nearly every week up until the day before he died. We will all miss him greatly but we’re all blessed to have him as our friend for all of those years. Rest In Peace my friend.

ellen schanzle-haskins posted on 2/15/22

Where to begin? It is difficult to describe the immense impact that Jerry Fines has had on our legal careers and the role he has played in shaping our lives. We were new lawyers, fresh from the hallowed halls of law school when Jerry tapped first Ellen, and the following year, Tom, to join his staff and the federal family at the US Attorney's Office. Suddenly, we were in the courtroom, taking cases to jury trial and learning some of life's most important lessons from Jerry -- important in the courtroom but equally as important in life. Jerry taught us to "make a decision, do not second guess yourself and move forward". He taught us that if it proved to be the wrong decision, apologize if you should. learn from it but let it go. He taught us to honor our country and our role in ensuring justice as federal prosecutors. As an example of his commitment to justice, US Attorney Fines not only issued press releases when an individual was indicted by a grand jury, he also insisted on the issuing of a press release when a grand jury voted not to indict. As grand jury proceedings are secret, US Attorney Fines did not have an obligation to tell the public that someone was under investigation but the grand jury had declined to bring charges-- but he did, because it was the fair thing to do. He was, in all things, solid and fair and professional. Just as he had been mentored by his closest friend Judge Harlington Wood, he was an unwavering mentor to both of us, and his friendship and his love of family and friends will never be forgotten. Our most heartfelt condolences, Attorneys Tom and Ellen Schanzle-Haskins are secret

I am so sorry to hear Barbara’s passing! Please receive my sincerest condolences of your great loss of this sweet lady! I was her piano teacher back in the 80s and would meet with her on a weekly basis in her apartment on Walnut Street here in Springfield, IL. She was a phenomenal student and was such a delight to help teach how to read the black dots, rests and ALL the white spaces! I remember she gave me a copy of the hymnal of the church she belong to and it had her picture in it! I treasure that hymnal and her friendship for the reason the season that it was. We always talked about her time with Toastmasters and I watched her bloom into even a more beautiful “Beautiful Soul” throughout those visits and lessons we shared! She was such a positive soul and so eager to learn new things and communicate with others! I loved her spirit and I know she has gone to a better place and I’ll see her again one day! May God comfort all her loved ones and friends during this time of grief. Fly High Kiddo! - Mr. Rusty

I am so very sorry for your tremendous loss of Mickey. I remember so fondly working with Mickey at the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives (AIEC) back in the early 80s. Mickey was a “Hoot” to work with! I believe she was working with Member Services and helping the electrical linemen in their training throughout the State of Illinois! You could find her anywhere throughout that building helping out and always had a positive attitude and such a “Bright Light!” Her humor and outlook on life were such a gift to anyone who knew her! Many a time she got me laughing so hard I barely made it back to the bathroom! She was that kind of a person, and I just loved her! She is going to be dearly missed. Mickey has left so many memory treasures for all of us who knew her! I’m so glad I got to know her and was able to share in her gifts and laugh with her! She was a Hoot and One of a Kind . . . “The Best Kind too!” God’s Comfort and Peace!

She was the sweetest lady but could also let you know when you were not acting or working in the way she expected you too. I remember her buying us ice cream on our breaks many a times. She retired the year I had my first born son. She was a very great lady and will definitely be missed.

Joanne had many, many friends. I was pleased to be among them for over 50 years. She was smart, kind and fiercely loyal. We shared many hilarious adventures in our teens, 20’s and 30’s. Whenever we could get time together in our later years, we always picked up where we left off as if no time had passed. We were BFFs long before that ever became a term. Joanne made the world a better place. She will be missed always and dearly loved forever.

Lisa was truly beautiful. I loved her light. When I would go in for a facial, we would talk about everything. She told me she decided to be an esthetician to help people fighting cancer with their skin. This was before her own diagnosis. She truly wanted to help others and she was so gentle and caring. When she spoke of Erin, she lit up and her eyes sparkled. Erin, you are the true joy of her life. Jonna, we spoke of her dream wedding to you and I know your marriage was a dream come true. She was so proud of the work you did and continue to do for all of us. Thank you for taking care of her. I am so sorry for your loss and your pain!

Joey, My heartfelt condolences to you and your family for the loss of your mom, Beth. I worked with Beth 35 years ago at the Illinois State Senate Democratic Staff. Word processors and personal computers were just beginning to appear on the office scene. It was very exciting. Once it was realized just how much of a time saver these machines were, they began to appear in offices just about everywhere including the Illinois State Senate. The field of office technology was born and that of course necessitated someone to manage the day to day operation as well as train the potential users. Beth stepped up and took charge. She was responsible for making sure all the Democratic secretaries and staff not only received one of these machines but she was also responsible for educating the users and trouble-shooting problems. This was a huge task and I was hired to assist her. Beth was great to work for and was very knowledgeable in her field. I enjoyed working for her. She was a very kind person, easy to work for and had a great sense of humor. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Dear Armento family, Please accept my sincere sympathies on the passing of Marianne. Our paths crossed many times during our lives. Marianne and I graduated with our Masters in Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. For two years, she spent one entire day each weekend in Champaign attending classes and one evening in a weekly study group. It was a demanding program but Marianne was persistent and relentless in finishing her degree. Both Paul and Marianne were my next door neighbors on South Lincoln in Springfield for several years. They were both genial, trustworthy and considerate friends at all times. Finally, I worked many years with Marianne at the former Illinois Department of Personnel and later Central Management Services. She was always friendly, cooperative, knowledgeable, extremely intelligent and a genuinely nice lady. Marianne always kept looking for new challenges, new horizons and new ideas. I'm happy she was able to travel so widely and often later in life. Not only did she see much of the world--she made it a better place as well. May God bless Marianne, Paul and your family now and always. Sleep in peace Marianne and Godspeed. John Headrick Springfield, IL

So sorry to learn of Beth’s passing. She was the nicest person, extremely dedicated & hard working lady who was an integral part of the success of the senate democrats. All Analyses, amendments and bills went through Beth. She spearheaded bringing us into the computer age with her skills, personality, education and drive. Beth was a wonderful person. She and her family are in our prayers.

I first met Mary Ann through her BFF Marianne Gorda at a luncheon. Mary Ann will probably always be the most unique friend I have ever known. Mom and I have always said she was an angel sent from heaven here to earth and now she has returned home to heaven. My fondest memory of Mary Ann was the first time I went to her house. I burnt the garbage for her and cleaned the fire pit raking it with Diesel, Sarge and the girls - her beloved chickens with me watching. I remember she took a picture that first day because she couldn’t believe Diesel and Sarge behaved! So, there I was and while Mom and Mary Ann were talking she commented on needing to feed Moochie, the first of her beloved cats, and so I offered to do that and cleaned the area as well. Her bird Buddy was on her shoulder most of the day. Mary Ann invited us to stay for dinner and afterwards mom and I did the dishes and such. The 3 of us giggled so much that day and a very special friendship was born of which mom and I will always cherish. I’ll perhaps miss most talking and listening to her stories before going to sleep. As the years went on and I would go to visit with and stay with Mary Ann, doing yard work, cleaning the chicken coup, tending the burn pile, feeding and saving the cats from a catastrophe, or putting corn out for the deer near her bedroom window so we could watch them, it was always a pleasure. I’ve cried more this past week than perhaps my entire lifetime, from going to call her and realizing I can’t, to writing, deleting, writing again and editing more this condolence. My words cannot express the extreme sorrow for the loss of such a friend and my being unable to attend her funeral service, and so to Marty, Brenda, Missy, Micheal and Mark, I do apologize and yet I say “thank you” to you all for being who you are and the subjects of many of your mother’s hilarious stories that brought laughter and joy. Every one of you are truly special. Mary Ann, meeting you on my path I have immense gratitude. Saying goodbye to you is so difficult. Rest in peace my friend and blessings of joy to you.

I first met Pat probably 65 years ago. We use to play together daily along with Jim Greg and Lynn. We walked to the pantheon theater on N Grand every Saturday afternoon. We watched color tv in his fathers tv repair shop. He suffered through my first attempt of doing a magic show in the back yard. So so many memories with you Pat. I pray to God that I am good enough to reminisce with you some day. Until then I pray that your wife, kids and siblings are comfortable in knowing that you are at peace now and happy with the Father Son and Holy Spirit.

Beth and I met in the 70's when we both worked at HUD. She was my bridesmaid when I got married and we kept in contact for many years. My husband worked at the Stratton Building, too, and they would "catch up" whenever they'd see each other. Beth was a wonderful person and will be missed by many people. I am just one.

My memory is from 49 yrs ago, while playing outside her house with Brenda and Marty she would call them into lunch. She invited me in on several occasions and the one thing that stood out the most was that vivid smile she would have on her face as she placed that plate in front of me at the dining room table. Never knew for sure if she realy liked me or thought I looked Hungry. Lol , but either way I will never forget her smile. My condolences go out to the whole family. And to MRS. CALCARA , R.I.P Your smile and kindness has been a memory of mine for the last 49 yes.

Dear Bastas family, What a beautiful smile Denysia had. It was the first thing you noticed about her. Always energetic, optimistic, wise, intelligent, and helpful. As a new intern on the Illinois State Senate staff, Denysia treated me like I was a regular staffer. She made me feel at ease immediately. Denysia was a fountain of knowledge about the State Senate and had the patience of Job when dealing with my inquiries. Despite the long and grueling hours she sometimes had to work, she unfailingly had time to talk with me and sneak me in to see a senator on this or that subject. Senators and staff trusted her implicitly for her competency, dependability, confidentiality, loyalty, and her ability to work well with others. Years later, I encountered Denysia many mornings at five or six a.m. at Fit Club South getting her daily workouts. Even later in life, she never slowed down and was a whirlwind of activity, filled with vigor and enthusiasm. I'll miss you Denysia. May God bless your family and Denysia now and always. Sleep in peace Denysia and Godspeed. John Headrick Springfield, IL

Of all the people I met while working for the Illinois State Senate, Denysia was the kindest. She was so approachable and had such a warm and gentle manner.

Mrs. Fanale was my fifth grade teacher over sixty years ago. I remember her as one of the fine teachers. I still to this day wonder why the Platte River is called the Platte. It was her challenge to us to find that answer and she would tell us if we were correct any year’s end. But with 40 plus students to manage Mrs. Fanale neglected to tell us what the Platte is called the Platte and I still wonder to this day. Despite that, she made my year in 5th grade steady and calm. God bless teachers.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Denysia Bastas. Denysia worked with my father, Terrel Clarke, when he was in leadership in the Illinois Senate in the early 1970's. She was so highly skilled and competent - I know Dad respected her and valued her assistance tremendously. In addition, she was unfailingly kind and gracious to everyone, and very welcoming to me when I would call Dad. I was in college in Champaign and would call and occasionally visit Dad, so got to know Denysia at that time, and then decades later caught up with her again when I traveled to Springfield for work and when I hired a woman who had worked with Denysia in the Lt Gov's office. Denysia was greatly respected and was the ultimate professional at a time when it was challenging to be a woman in the legislative arena in Springfield, and I am so grateful to have known her and my family is grateful for all the professional support she gave our father. May she rest in peace - and may you find comfort in your memories.

To Mary Ann’s family, I knew MaryAnn through my aunt, and her BFF Marianne Gorda, She was a wonderful person and I enjoyed her very much. I would get to visit when I came to Springfield, since I live in Columbus, Ohio. She came to Columbus a couple of times and stayed with me, and was able to visit my friends and family. We all enjoyed her very much. She will be missed by all, but especially by Marianne Gorda, her best friend and my aunt.

Kenny Rossi was one of my brother's best friends so I knew him as a child. He was always nice, funny a lot, and just a good kid. When we lost our mother in December, 2020, I had not seen him in years, but he made sure to get my and my sister's addresses to let us know that he was thinking of us. He stayed a good person and was so thoughtful to remember us when he, himself was already sick. I know he will be missed because people like Kenny leave a big footprint.

I worked with her at Dept. of Corrections and would see her several times a week. She always had a smile and talked so proudly of her family. We were both from the "cabbage patch" and that explains why we exchanged simple jokes during our brief encounters, Rest in Peace Betty- you have earned life's degree and graduated to heaven. You'll certainly be sadly missed.

Diane, I'm so sorry about the loss of your father. I have many fond memories of sleepovers in your basement during our grade and high school years, father -daughter dances, just to name a few. You know when my dad was sick with cancer and in the hospital, Dr. Kenney checked on him every day - not as his doctor but as a friend. I will never forget that gesture of kindness. Hugs.

How she loved Barry Manilow, Butterfly’s ,and went thru a faze watching professional wrestling on TV. Her fierce independence and complete lack of self-pity due to her physical limitations. Growing up Carol loved spoiling us and we had such great fun on our visits. Carol loved her Steak n Shake and we always enjoyed our trips there. It was always intriguing for us to watch her drive her Buick Skylark with nothing but hand controls. We also enjoyed swimming with her at the Sheraton on our visits. This was in the days before ADA (American Disability Act) accommodations and Carol would use her incredibly strong arms to move from a chair to the floor and propel herself backwards to the pool edge to get in ( and reverse the process getting out) . Oblivious (or ignoring) any bystander stares, she carried on enjoying herself with her family at the pool…. As Karen pointed out …Fearless! Carol lived through her heart and was notoriously emotional shedding tears of joy when we arrived to visit and shedding tears as well when we departed… as kids we hated to see Carol cry. As an adult I recognize she was simply leading with her heart. Thankyou Carol. We miss you!

 

Dennis Voigt posted on 1/11/22

Carol took great pride in living independently and took care of her elderly Mother to the end of her life. She survived polio with grace and never let her disability get in the way of enjoying life. Her upbeat personality and the ability to always see the glass-half full, despite her many physical challenges, was an inspiration to everyone she met. An avid butterfly lover and Hummel statue collector, Carol was a notoriously finicky eater, but a connoisseur of fried chicken. Barry Manilow’s biggest fan. She had a bubbly, upbeat, out-going personality. She loved going to plays, particularly musicals. Never let her polio disability get in the way of enjoying life. Other hobbies included making greeting cards with friends, and being active in her polio support group. Loved to spoil her niece and nephews We Miss You Carol!

 

Karen Latimer posted on 1/11/22

When I think of Carol, I think of color. She was always upbeat, bright, and happy. She was full of life. Nothing would slow her down. As a child, I always loved our visits. My brothers and I took turns sleeping on the cot, a coveted spot beside her bed. She let us stay up and watch Johnny Carson on the TV in her room. She would tell us the adventurous stories of Bobby Boo and Sally Sue after lights out. She was the only person I knew that was a member of the Barry Manilow Fan Club. She loved his music. She was also a big fan of musicals. Carol was one of the pickiest eaters ever. When dinner rolled around at her house, you knew you didn’t have to eat your vegetables. My brothers and I would enjoy outings with her that included trips to the Steak n Shake or Angelo’s Pizza, swimming at the Sheraton pool, and going to the park. She would occasionally rev up her car’s engine while stopped at a light next to someone on a motorcycle as if to challenge the Harley driver to a drag race in her Buick Regal. I always admired how she navigated the world with what most would see as challenges or limitations. To me, she was fearless.

 

Mary Vogt posted on 1/11/22

I worked for several years with Carol and we had some good laughs together. She was always a joy to be around. My sincere condolences to her family.

I want to extend my condolences to the entire Kohlrus family, on the death of Uncle Johnny. My grandma, Anna Kohlrus Rock, was his sister. He comes from a family who had their values in order: God, family, and hard work. He set the standard for men who can cook and garden! He is the last of his generation, as his own brothers and sisters have been laid to rest on two continents, 3 centuries, and 2 millennia. He has left quite a legacy for his own children and grandchildren. May God give him rest, and your family peace. Much love to all of you.

Joette Sandy and I are so sorry to hear of the passing of Don! I remember my first day of retirement and Don wanted me to go to work for him and I did! Great memories

 

Todd Hirstein posted on 1/11/22

I was fortunate to know Don my entire life since he was one of my father’s best friends. Don was a truly nice guy with an absolutely wicked sense of humor!. He loved trying to make us laugh and eventually knew my dad Wally had instructed us never to laugh at Don’s jokes just to drive him nuts. We considered Don a member of the 2 Brothers family and certainly looked forward to every time we saw him. We were able to watch as he met and married the incredible Joette, and he loved and cherished their love and life together. I’ll miss Don terribly and wish Joette the joyful knowledge that Don’s feelings were told to me by him as finally finding his partner for life. That’s what Don told me when I was considering a relationship. The Hirstein family wants you all to honor this really good guy as we do.

My condolences to the Kohlrus family. I was friends with Tim from our High School Days and had the good pleasure of meeting your dad on several occasions. He was a neat old man that reminded me a lot of my own Father, both of German descent, No-Nonsense - Hardworking Men of Faith and Family that were part of the Greatest Generation. From time to time I would run into Mr. Kohlrus after Mass at St. John Vianney’s and stop to talk Crappie Fishing with him before he hopped on his three wheel scooter to head home. I throughly enjoyed those conversations, I hope he did too. Rest In Peace Mr. Kohlrus . The north end of Springfield will never forget the Kohlrus name. Jim Kramp / Friend of Tim’s.

Carol was a good friend whom I met through the Post Polio Support Group in Springfield. She was always delightful, upbeat, and very supportive to those members who were experiencing difficulties in their lives. Each year, with the help of her good friend, Carol opened up her house to members of the support group for a pot luck luncheon. She had a special talent for making everyone feel right at home. A kind lady, a joyous spirit, a loving presence -- she will be remembered fondly by all in our group.

The short time I got to know and love Elijah will always be something i cherish. Late nights listening to country music and talking about everything and anything. We would be up all night, sleep most the day, always get McDonalds in the mid morning and watch movies and cuddle on the couch the rest of the afternoon into the evening. I miss summer days getting a tan by the pool while he hid in the shade so he wouldn’t burn haha. There is so much I will miss, but I am thankful for the memories.

My favorite memory of Eli has to be when we were on the verge of falling in love. Early September nights in the pool looking at the stars. I enjoyed a dip in the pool before bedtime and he would join me. We would talk about everything and nothing at all, trying to fit a whole lifetime into those moments. Floating on our backs, trying not to make it too obvious how into each other we were. Getting to know you, and getting to fall in love with you. The fragile few weeks of a budding romance. Then falling madly in love; suddenly, and then all at once. Weeks turned to months, and we found our routine. Movies, tv shows, always with a Ben & Jerry’s. Talking late into the night. Listening to the storms rolling in. I miss you Eli.

Duey was the nicest, kindest gentleman I ever knew. He loved his family sooo much. I remember him escorting me (the yoga teacher @ Bickford) to class. I css wasn’t remember the day that I knocked on his door and told him it was time to exercise. He smiled and held out his arm to escort me there. We talked as we walked there. He pointed at his Air Force photo in the hall & said that was him. He was proud to have served his country. After class he again wanted to escort me back- to drop him at his door. He wanted to show me the family photo he had in his room. He smiled so big! I could see the love he held dearly for each person in that photo. Duey could always make me smile. He was truly a gift from God. I loved having him as a friend. I respect and honor him for the gentleman that he is. I will miss you Duey. I know you’re with Jesus now, dancing, singing, making everyone smile! My condolences to his family. I can imagine the ache in your hearts at his passing. Angie Ryan

I first met Fr. Zimmerman at one of his favorite haunts, the Marion Center in Springfield. In appearance he reminded me so much of Father Cassidy but his quiet demure belied any other resemblance.

Will always remember Vito as we lived near him in Flaggland Park in Sherman. We would attend garage sales held at his place. One year I told him of my plight to find square angel food cake pans as we have a son in service and we loved to send him angel food cake. The square shaped cakes from these pans were the perfect size to send. Sure enough later in the summer he stopped by our home bringing us a square angel food cake pan. We will never forget his kindness and generosity in giving us that cake pan. Will always remember him and his fun loving bargains at the many garage sales. We will miss you Vito. Have fun with your old buddy at all the garage sales in heaven. Save a few bargains for us!!!!

Condolences for your loss, Sheila. I am sure my Grandfather A. D.

Having been raised by my grandfather from the tender age of 5 years old until my grandfathers death in 1986, they will have a lot to talk about, I’m sure. I personally… will never forget the care & concern he displayed at my fathers death. Or when I sought his help with my mentally challenged brother (his nephew), an experience I will always remember. I can assure you, The Anderson family will never forget our Uncle Jerry or his mother Mary, our step grandmother.

I cannot begin to guess how many hundreds of hours that Jerry spent working at Central Baptist Church in Springfield. He was a remarkable “handyman” for Central and for many individuals, which included plumbing, electrical, painting, changing light bulbs, cleaning, just to name a few. He was a dedicated servant of our Lord and Central saved thousands and thousands of dollars because of Jerry’s selfless generosity. He was always the first man at the dishwasher after our Men’s Breakfast at Central on Saturdays also. Jerry, I am so thankful that God put you in my life and in the life of Central Baptist Church. You will be missed by many people. Your work is done, my friend. You were a great role-model to me and many others!

It’s still hard for me to believe Carol is gone. She worked with my Mom at St. John’s many years ago and we remained friends all of these years. We had a lot of good visits at her condo.

So sorry to hear the news about Jerry. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Sheila. You were wonderful neighbors on Quarterstaff, and we enjoyed running in to you several times after we moved. I know he will be missed by many.

I worked for Schlitt Supply Company 41 years (starting Nov 1953) as a bookkeeper. We called the brothers: Mr. Fred, Mr. Franklin and Mr. Theodore (we called Ted, Jr. "Teddy" at that time). After their passing, Ted became President, Jim Barnard (deceased) was VP and I was Corporate Sec'y. I am now 93 y/o but then I worked in accounts receivable/payable. Our 1st computer was a monster in a special air conditioned room! We had a BIG cash register, a dictaphone, typed on manual typewriters and took inventory by physically counting EVERY nut and bolt! My memories are many, as are they for my daughter, Cindy Lash. Our sympathy to Sheila and the girls.

Vito made everyone feel important and cared for each one. His words of truth and encouragement blessed so many people. All of our love Vito--we will miss you, but we rejoice in knowing you are spending time in all of Heaven's glory with Jesus.

Dr Maurer was great role model and helped train many physicians in this community for nearly 50 yrs. I personally went to his office as a medical student, helped care for his patients as an intern and saw his referrals as a practicing physician. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word. It was a privilege to have known him. We all have a little bit of Joe Maurer in us and we are better physicians because of it . Larry M Newell MD

was so sorry to learn of Ted’s passing. I knew him as a high school classmate at Springfield High during the 1950s. I was a new kid and Ted, among others, was friendly and helped make me comfortable with my new surroundings. I knew him as a friendly classmate, fun to be with, and a good student. I saw Ted only occasionally over the next 65 years, but was able to keep up with him through mutual friends. My sincere condolences and best regards to his family. He was a wonderful guy and someone I valued and respected.

As I sit down to write, my heart is heavy and my eyes are full of tears. Marcia was a dear friend, one of our group of St. Agnes "Bible Study Ladies", and I am bereft that she is gone so soon....much too soon. Our group was a good one, lots of fellowship, laughter, support and sometimes, tears, and Marcia was always a cheerful soul, a smiling face, a kind word and laugh always at the ready. You couldn't help but love her! I am incredibly sad for her husband, her family and friends, but the one thing I do know that gives peace within the sadness is that Marcia went straight to the arms of Jesus; of that, I am SURE. She was a woman of God, strong in her faith and a shining example of a christian life well lived. We'll miss you, Marcia. Rest in Peace.

Growing up in Vietnam, we used to vacation together at vung tau, and even though I am considered the elder because my mother is Cung's mother older sister, I always considered him my older brother because he was older than me by 4 years and I had always looked up to him. I will missed you, my kind cousin.

It was such a shock to hear of Bill’s untimely passing. What a wonderful picture of him. I had the pleasure of working with Bill this past year. He could strike up any type of conversation and was never afraid to say what was on his mind. That seemed to work out great because I was a good listener and enjoyed hearing all about his point of view or his latest adventure. I’m going to miss his “Night all, have a good weekend” as he headed out the office door every Thursday afternoon. I consider myself blessed to have gotten the chance to get to know him. RIP my friend.

I worked with my cousin Bill at Jewel/Osco when I was a late teen. I had been there since my sophomore year of High School. We’d see each other everyday, and later at Family functions or reunions we would politely argue, no fighting more joking, about Sports, since we didn’t like the same sports teams. Bill was a Great guy and a Nice Man. But he was also a Great Cousin. So Sad to hear about his passing and sad that I can’t make it to say goodbye in person, as I live pretty far away. So I’ll say this, Rest In Peace Cuz! Enjoy Christmas with God, Jesus and your Parents. See ya around Cuz! RIP

Here’s a Gordon-the-dad story that I’ll always remember him by. When the twins were still schoolboys, Gordon built a privacy fence by the back yard fence with a latch only on the yard-side of the fence. He rigged a knothole (that could be easily removed from the alleyway) attached to a string that would unlatch the the gate, then be replaced in the “hole”. The “secret” to opening the gate from the outside was to be known only to family. But, of course, Gordon gave demonstrations of his secret to all his friends in the neighborhood. Do you remember it Jason, Damon? What a great dad he was.

 

Tom O’Brien posted on 12/23/21

Condolences to you, Shelia, and your girls and grandchildren. Ted and I were the same and grew up in the same neighborhood. I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know him - or could ever beat him at tennis or golf. He was very competitive and very good at both. My sympathy to all his family, and to his many friends

Lora and I had been friends for the past 20 yrs. She was so talented and hard-working; and quick to learn anything new. And she had a glass-half-full, joyful spirit. While we hadn’t been in regular contact for several years, I realize with her passing, that I always expected we’d have another conversation…very sad that that won’t happen. I miss you, dear friend! My consolation is that I know you’re enjoying your new journey beyond this world. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

I have known Ted for several years & I have talked with him on a regular basis. I often joked with him about retirement & told him that if IDOT ever sold the building that he would have to come with it as a fixture of the agency as a package deal. I used to help him out with railroad finances, graduate student interns at UIS, procurement & consultant agreements. I would consistently seek his advice when it came to work, family & life in general. Ted is one of a kind & can never be duplicated by anyone. I wish Ted & his family peace & will always miss his wit & wisdom.

Our fondest memories are the many small business trips and trade shows we shared especially when they landed us together in Vegas. She was always the lucky little gambler and beamed as she often beat the system. There were many good conversations and just fun being with her and Gene over many years. An amazing Love for Gene and her kids and grandchildren was always evident. She glowed when she showed pictures and talked about them. The loves of her life. A wonderful Angel who will be missed by all that knew her. She is with Danny again and she will be watching over all the family and especially her best friend and husband Gene.

Taking a big cow wooden sign out of a yard on Ash and putting it in a neighbors yard so they’d have to go ask for it back. Sliding on ice into a yard and almost running over a dog…… I’m not sure how we survived high school sometimes but we sure did. I wish I could have helped in your struggles. You really helped me with some of mine when I needed it. Thanks for always loving and never judging. Rest In Peace my friend.

I am Ed's baby sister as he called me. We are 25 years apart in age, however we shared a special bond. I treasure every moment we shared. Every trip out of state for IBM he would find the time to send a post card with a small note and always signed Love Bud. Bud was the name I grew up calling him. I remember so many good times with him. After I had my twin daughters he would often come by even after working late just to visit and play with the girls.,and they could count on him having a piece of candy in his pocket for them. I could go on but as you see he was truly a good brother and friend. He will be missed very much.

Martha was one of the kindest, most caring, down to earth people that I have ever known. I met when she was a teenager and I was a good friend of her sister Carla, (Also a very kind caring person). She loved kids, animals, and all kinds of interesting things. We went to Michigan a few years ago and laughed all the way there and home. We stopped at an IKEA in northern Illinois and tornado warnings were all the way around us and she kept her cool. She loved the little out of the way shops and could spit one. Of course we had to stop and always had a good time. She loved her family dearly!!! I never heard her say a bad word about anyone and always found the good in all situations. We love you always Martha!!

 

janis cellini posted on 12/15/21

To me, Martha represented pure Kindness. I was lucky enough to share life with her in our later years. Besides trips to small-town thrift shops, we loved strolling thru different places that were new to us. She pointed me to places and things I would never had noticed and I enjoyed each and every visit! I will always treasure her optimistic outlook on most everything and loved her strong opinions about things that mattered. The world would be so much better if there were more Martha Calcaras! Mark, Joey, Ryan, Heather, Peyton and Hannah - I know how much she will be missed among you. But if I know one thing about Martha - she will NEVER leave you all alone. She will be in every decision you make, every meal you cook and at every important event that you still have in front of you. Remember to talk to her every day - as I know how much each of you meant to her. She sure will appreciate the attention (and the conversation) and saying words out loud will help you in your own lives too. Oh yes - remember to stay quiet afterwards so that you hear her response! God is holding her tightly in His arms right now and she is resting calmly - without pain! - Her religion was strong so know she will always hear you and/or bring you answers! Bless you all - and remember - she wants you to keep busy, stay strong and be the very best you can be! By the way - Willy and Jules (my dogs) missed her for hours after each of her visist. We already talked with her this monring......so her line might be busy some mornings. How lucky we were to have had her in our lives!

Martha wasn’t my “mother-in-law”, she was like another mom to me. I loved our relationship. When the girls were little we talked on the phone daily. I would ask her advice about the kids, we would go to yard sales and thrift sores together.There was a play group I was a part of and one day the other moms were complaining about their mother-in-laws. One of the moms said looking at me “What about you?” I said “I absolutely love my mother-in-law. We talk daily.” I loved watching her with the girls, especially when they were little. You could just see the joy in her eyes. I loved hearing stories about her siblings. She always had good ones about Carla, that ended laughing so hard until she was in tears. She taught me so much and I will cherish every moment I had with her. She will forever be missed but always treasured.

Anytime you drove onto LLCC’s campus, Dave Gleeson was seen out and about doing his job. My observation was that he was a very hard worker and LLCC is a better, and more beautiful campus because of Dave’s dedication to his craft. Faculty, staff and students thank you Dave, and wish you God’s speed.

My Dear Jenny, A terrible shock, when I opened this mail. I could not keep from immediately thinking of this time last year. I pray, you have been able, through Jesus, to withstand. Please know, Joyce and I will be thinking of you and your Family. If there is anything that you may want from me, don’t hesitate. I feel somewhat uncomfortable, because of last year. I really hope that if you want to possibly continue our discussions of last year and early this, my heart is open to you. Now we send our love and thoughts to you. May the Lord, bless you and keep you, and make His face to shine upon you, and give you peace. All my love. Uncle Fred & Aunt Joyce

To the Daugherty Famiy: I first met Terry in the mid 80’s when I joined the Earl Bomke Horseshoe League. Anywhere from 30 to 40 guys would gather once a month on a Saturday at Lincoln Park for spirited games of horseshoes, several beers and always a wonderful meal generously cooked and delivered by Terry and his Wife Virginia. The running joke amongst the club members that were fire fighters was that Terry would have made a great fireman, cause he could cook. I often wondered if it was Terry that would have made a great fire fighter or was it Virginia??? At any rate they were both very generous people to cook for so many which is no easy task. Terry was a great guy that loved life and his horseshoe buddies. He could light up any room with his great smile and those smiling eyes. He was just the kind of guy you enjoyed being around. He will be missed by ALL that knew him especially his horseshoe friends. May Terry’s soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God Rest In Peace. Jim Kramp - Friend

As an alderman, George was a constant source of knowledge and on the ground opinion. George was a man of action. Lynn and I will forever be grateful for hundreds upon hundreds of testimonial letters he and Mary Jo signed in support of my election efforts to represent SW Springfield neighborhoods on the City Council. Their door was always open with a welcoming hello. George’s acts of friendship and civic mindedness will live on with all who knew him.

To the Harvatin family: My wife and I send our sincerest condolences on your loss of Dave. I worked with Dave for many years as part of the Aerospace team, and he was my good friend and go-to guy for many technical questions, and I greatly enjoyed our discussions about work and otherwise. One of the special yearly highlights for my wife and I was to have Dave join us each year for Thanksgiving dinner, which we had done for several years. He felt like extended family to us; and he was a gentleman and a scholar in the truest sense of both. We will always miss him, and it is my prayer that God will provide you peace, comfort and warm memories of Dave in the coming days and weeks.

To the Harvatin family, The loss of Dave is tremendous to our Aerospace team. As others have stated Dave was a go to person for some of our hardest problems to solve. He generated some of the best reports/analysis with extreme clarity on complex technical issues - a talented engineer that could write, a very rare combination. Our paths did not cross at Ford Aerospace, but I'm sure glad they crossed at Aerospace Corp. You will be missed my friend

 

Chad HUston posted on 12/1/21

My condolences to your family. I have crossed paths with Mr Haven a few times over the years, I think probably always around or near a soccer field , but even if hadn't I would have never forgotten him. He was the kind of teacher that taught you more than a subject. Its been a few years, I think it was Freshman Algebra in 80-81, but he made a lasting impact on me and many others. He will be missed.

 

Dorothy Arbiter posted on 12/1/21

Dear Ted and family, Dave was a remarkable engineer. He will be greatly missed here at Aerospace.

Dave was a standout in our business in that regard. He will be greatly missed.

To the family of Dave Harvatin: I'm so very sorry for your loss. Dave and I worked on a project together for about three years. Though it was his intelligence and work ethic that were being "paid for", it was his humor and keen sense for people that made him such a beloved member of our team. What a loss for Aerospace and our larger community. Peace be with all of you as you mourn his loss.

I wanted to let Dave’s family know how much he was treasured at the Aerospace Corporation. I was his manager for a few years before I retired in 2019. Dave was brilliant – he was given problems that few others could solve. He was quirky (you folks probably know that), but always thoughtful and considerate. Dave got along well with all the engineers and scientists he worked with at Aerospace. And even though he and I had different political views (I grew up in Chicago and he would lightheartedly refer to me as the big-city liberal [guilty]), we would have lively and respectful discussions of our different viewpoints. I will sorely miss him.

I thank God for the time we had together John. We knew each other since chilhood, living in the same neighborhood, and going to the same schools. You went off to Viet Nam & life happened for both of us. Little did we know that "Life" would bring us back together. I never expected such a "blessing" as you. You made life fun and exciting for us. Our trips, your witty humor & positive outlook for our future. You taught me so much about "Life" during the last few years we had together, I will forever be grateful to you. Dakota still looks for you, as I wait, to hear your voice one more time. You are missed by "our family", & they speak of you with great memories. Your kindness, generosity and love will stay with us forever. Until we meet again, and I know we will... as we promised...I'll always love you! Patsy

My heartfelt sympathy to Larry, Andrew and Mattea at this time of sadness. Deborah and Larry were so helpful with activities at Butler School and always willing to help with any event. I remember how proud Deborah was of her cookie jar collection. Andrew and Mattea were such wonderful students.. May happy memories bring you comfort now and in the days ahead.

As a Patient Liaison, I spent a lot of time in ICU where Kay so kindly and efficiently did her job. I never saw her when she wasn’t smiling and helpful to everyone. We sometimes shared the love of our children. I’m sure she will be missed by all but it is Heaven’s gain! May God comfort you over your loss.

Joe, I remember when dad passed and you took care of everything so well, Tom and I were grateful for that. Now he is with you, and mom and dad, just 9 months and you two are both gone, and in a better place. No pain, no sorrow, just peace. I also remember when we went fishing at Sangamon river when it was just the two of us at home because Tom had got married at 16. Then there was you teaching me to drive, as mom and then dad gave up! Thanks for that. Then when I was living at dads you came over w/ a computer you picked up at a yard sale, set me up with it and w/ internet, I can send messages to my sons in Chicago you said, and sure enough it worked! You did the same for Tom, who said "I will most likely never use it", and we know. how that turned out. You and Tom were both good brothers to me, the best a sister could ask for, and yes I believe we will meet again, love, Mare

Mary’s gentleness made my two-year old feel so welcome when we first went to Sherman Methodist Church. Her love just shone through in her teaching. God is surely saying, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant!” Years later, she loved on my son and his friends! I still have gifts my kids made with Mary’s guidance! I know I don’t have to tell you how special she was… but I want you to hear it again and again so that you can smile thru your tears, knowing the awesome impact she made in so many lives!

Riding around in your hot new 57 Ford. Hanging out with our old friend, Ray Young. All great memories. Pray that you are resting in peace, my dear friend.

Marsha sat by my husband and I every Sat evening mass when she was still attending at Blessed Sacrament. One day she stopped coming. We were concerned about her because she asked us to give her a ride home on a couple of occasions as she wasn’t feeling well. We thought about checking on her again when we missed her but didn’t want to intrude. I am glad she was with her family who she talked about all the time. She was a wonderful person. I always looked so forward to seeing her and was sad when she no longer came to mass. We prayed for her. We are so sorry for your loss and all the lives she touched.

Thomas was my brother-in-law, but I always considered him to be my big brother. My fondest memories of Thomas were him always teasing myself, my sisters or my brother. His laugh was genuine and he loved to have fun. I can remember him checking my car for low tire pressure once after driving hours for work in a single day and stopping in Springfield on my way home. He always looked out for everyone. His hugs were always strong, but his personality was always so caring and kind. He was an amazing husband to my sister and a wonderful father to my nieces and nephew. He was a wonderful man. We will miss you daily, Thomas. We love you and can't wait until the day we see you again.

I moved into my Condominium Association in 1992 and that's when I met Violet Harvey, a sweet and wise woman. Soon after, I met her precious son, Donald Harvey, just Don to us neighbors. And then as Don matured in age, I met his son Pat. So today I reflect on three generations of Harveys. And I think about this kind and gentle man, who has been my neighbor and friend for 29 years. You will be forever missed my friend. I thank you for your service and Iamso happy that you like me know our Lord and Savior. Matthew 11:28 (NCV) seems most appropriate for you and the Harvey family today: "Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest." You are in a better place now, so rest in peace my neighbor and friend.

So sorry to hear of Erma’s passing. My sincere condolences to her family. I have fond memories of our families get togethers in Wisconsin. Even though we would see each other in Springfield, it was always fun getting together at Amacoy! When we would have our holiday gatherings at our place on the Sangamon River, I couldn’t wait to see what Erma would bring, especially her delicious lasagna! She was such a vibrant and happy person, always willing to help and partake. We were lucky to have such great parents.

Nancy and Family, So sorry to hear of Bobo's passing. Bobo was such a sweet, good friend of myself and Jim during our Ursuline and Cathedral days. We had so much innocent fun and he was such a good dancer. Bobo just was such a happy , funfilled soul . We had so many laughs together. I am sure he will be sorely missed by many.

Sending my sincere condolences to "Mrs. Fandel's" family ( as a kid this is what I always called her.) I have many happy memories growing up with the Fandel family at Cathedral Grade School. A few cherished memories are: her leadership with our 4 H club. This was inspiring; She helped us win the " Around the World" competition at the Illinois State Fair grounds (I still have the picture from the newspaper on our win) She was also way ahead of her time by having all us girls provide cooking demonstrations at our 4H meetings. Funny face cake and snickerdoodles. (A precursor to Food Network shows lol.) She gave me one of my first "paid" jobs - stuffing envelopes for her family business and she was always a great role model for leadership and organization. She led a wonderful life and she raised a beautiful family. God Bless! Thinking of you Ann and Sue.

Erma & Joe were friends of my parents, Tony & Joyce Guzas Yezdauski. My Mother & Joe knew one another from early years in northern Wisconsin; then later renewed that friendship when all were living in Spfld. & Joe worked with my Mom at Sangamo Electric. My parents eventually moved to Zapata, TX. Dad passed away in 1985 at age 68. Mom died in 2013 at age 95. My sincere condolences to David, Susie, Annie and your families. We were all blessed with wonderful parents and great memories.

What a great man! He always had time for a smile and a quick chat despite how hard he worked. He was always willing to help out and deal with whatever situation I had going on from my special students, to student council activities or after hour Girl Scout events. After I left the high school he still always had a wave or smile when he was at Central. The world is sad he left, but grateful for his time that we had him. Prayers to all your family.

To the Benecky Famiy: I first met Joe in 1984 when I joined the Earl Bomke Horseshoe League. The league was full of characters but none more larger than life and fun to be around than BoBo. It wasn’t till later in our friendship that I / we realized I worked with Joe’s Sister Lavina for over 25 years and didn’t know they were brother snd sister. Joe was a kind and decent man and will certainly be missed by all that knew him, none more than his horseshoe friends. Until we meet again Joe, may your soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God Rest In Peace. Jim Kramp / Friend.

Christine Pluff (Patty’s sister) posted on 10/30/21

I first met my brother in law here in Florida when we took a trip to Universal Studios. He was a pretty quiet guy but we all enjoyed ourselves regardless of the 100 degree weather and long lines. But several years back I dedicated my life to Christ again and I was always calling my sister to ask her what something meant. We both would be looking for a passage in the Bible and before we could even find the right book he already had the right book, chapter and verse pulled up so I credit him for helping lead me back to Christ. I would get frustrated sometimes but his knowledge of the Bible was amazing. If it wasn’t for him and my sister I wonder how far I would have gotten. He was definitely God’s child and loved the Lord with all his heart. For Christmas 4 or 5 years ago I found a cheap sterling silver bracelet with the Lord’s Prayer engraved on it and for all those years he never took it off. I was so pleased to have gotten him something that even when he was in the nursing home and you weren’t sure what he understood he would not take that bracelet off. More than anything I loved that man for how he treated my sister. He was so gentle and kind and I couldn’t have picked a better husband for her. He loved her very much and showed her in so many ways. I can just imagine the look on his face as he met Jesus after loving him for so long. There is not an ounce of doubt in my mind that St. Peter just threw open the doors when he got there.

My sweet Grandma, As I adored you so much. You meant the world to me, and I will miss you so much. I wanted to thank you for everything you did for me, and I wanted you to know that I'll be okay. Don't worry about me, I just wish you got to see my birthday. I know you were in pain for a while, and I know Ray needed you up there too. I will love you forever. Until we meet again, butterfly kisses. I am glad to sit and remember every memory we had together. Some of my favorites were when we used to watch paranormal shows and eat grandpa's jellybeans. We also used to count the thunder to see how far away it was from us. Or the most recent when you drove us to go shop and you were crusing 90 down the interstate. I knew how much you loved me and everyone else did too. I will cherish all those memories for the rest of my life. I love you Grandma.

As a close friend of Sharon’s for over 35 years, I can say that she was one of the most beautiful souls you would ever want to meet. Even when she was sick she wanted to know how you were doing. She had a tremendously loving, caring and generous spirit. She will greatly be missed. I feel very blessed to have had her in my life. Our loss is heaven’s gain. Prayers for strength to Sharon’s family.

It’s with such sadness that I post this condolence. What would we be without our memories? And my memories of Aunt Evelyn are all bright and vivid, as was she. Her’s was a smile that would light up a room; a laugh that was infectious and joyous. She was a light in our lives that will shine on. Deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved her.

I had the good fortune to meet Bill Price roughly 15 years ago through his son Ron and Daughter in Law Debbie. Bill and Barb would attend most the same party functions that Jan and I were invited to and I loved listening to his stories. From his work with the Boy Scouts, to his times working at the power plant, to his wood working skills, to his hunting and fishing stories. He was part of that greatest generation that could build or fix anything and was willing to help anyone that asked. He love to tease Anyone willing to engage him and he had the grin of a chesser cat while doing so. I was honored to have been asked by the family to be a part of Bill’s service which I’m thankful for. Rest In Peace Bill Price. A Life Well Lived. You did it right and were loved by many. From the guy you once told, “You’re Handier Than a Shirt Pocket” Jim and Jan Kramp

Frank was the most interesting and amusing man we ever met. He had stories from his youth through to his days in Vietnam and well beyond. He could tell raucous stories from his young adulthood and follow-up with a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. He told stories (we sometimes found to be horrific and scary) with ease and amusement. With his stories, he made us laugh, sometimes cry, lots of times think deeply and always walk away appreciating our neighbors and friends. God bless you Frank -- you're one in a million!

To the Roberts Family: 26 years ago Frank came into our lives when he married our sister Betty. Over the years they built a beautiful retirement home in Mun-Row City Mo, which They both loved. Many wonderful family memories took place there. Whether it was Frank slow cooking pork buts or Frying fish you didn’t want to intervene cause Frank would certainly put you in your place which was out of his kitchen. For 26 years he cared for and Loved our Sister Betty and for that love and care we are grateful. From his attire ( sleeveless button down shirts and Brandt’s Trucker hats ) to his colorful jokes and silly laugh he will be missed but NEVER forgotten. Frank passed on his Mother’s birth day and we were all thankful she came and took Frank home. Rest In Peace Frank You were loved by many people. A life well lived. Jim Kramp - Brother In Law

I've been the Secretary at the Village of Jerome for eight years and knew your parents through their volunteering and helping out in many ways around the Village. I'm sure knowing they are back together will bring you comfort and peace. Please accept my sympathy to the entire family on your loss.

With great sorrow, I just learned of Greg´s untimely passing since I don´t receive the paper and hadn´t spoken with Greg in a few weeks. I´m glad to say Greg was truly the best friend I´ve ever had. I had known him since 1998, shortly after moving to Springfield. Greg made it a point to walk and visit me a few times a week after he finished work a few blocks away from my downtown apartment. We´d go to our favorite watering holes a couple times a week to meet with mutual friends and "solve" the problems of the world. I´m going to miss our frequent discussions regarding psychology, politics, religion, finances and, invariably, women. Greg was the kindest and most generous person I´ve ever known. His characteristic contagious laughter was just the prescription for anyone needing a brighter day. My deepest sympathy goes out to Greg´s family. There is now a void that will likely never be filled. Rest in peace, my friend.

Ronnie, I will truly miss you .I am so glad we got reacquainted through FB. I will always remember the fun we had working at Whiteys. I have never forgotten how much you liked the band Kiss and you playing the air guitar between cooking at the restaurant. I hadn’t remembered this but you told me that Theresa and I took you to your first concert at 14 . I guess we didn’t corrupt you too bad lol ! Reading your obituary, you were so smart and accomplished so many wonderful things in your short life. God knew you had done all the work here on Earth and was ready to reward you in Heaven. Sending your family prayers and hugs especially your daughter Sophie. I used to like watching your baking sessions with her . You were such a great Dad. Just wanted you to know I will never forget you. Rest In Peace. Rock n Roll all night and party every day

I was watching the Ryder Cup today and there was a commercial for some Baird company that jogged my memory of Henry. We were friends while serving at Camp Pendleton in the Marines. We rented an apartment in San Clemente California with one other friend and launched many fun weekend excursions from this home base. One in particular was a trip to the Queen Mary which was just docked at Long Beach. They had a shop that sold family coat of arms and Henry was able to find his there. I tried to reconnect after the service but before the internet it was impossible. It sounds like he had a great life. So sorry to hear he passed.

Don was an awesome friend and neighbor! I am deeply saddened to learn of his passing. We bonded over our love of our dogs and shared many beers together. He was my accomplice in hiding Christmas presents for my daughter. She found all of my hiding spots in my house, so I had to store gifts at his house across the street. He was so much fun and a very protective neighbor. It gave me great comfort knowing he was across the street. I loved listening to his political views. The Democratic Party will greatly miss Don. Rest in peace, my friend.
