He worked in the glass industry for over 50 years, mainly at Thatcher Glass Manufacturing in Streator. He was a jack of all trades his entire life.
He had a distinctive laugh that was well known by his family and friends. He was very outgoing and enjoyed life to the fullest. His passion was riding his Harley, everywhere and anywhere! If he wasn’t on his Harley, you would find him in his garage fixing anything that needed fixed. His greatest joy was to spend time with family and friends. He would meet his buddies every morning for coffee and breakfast. He also enjoyed their company a few nights a week for dinner. He was a dedicated friend and father.
Memorials may be directed to the family to be dispersed to local charities.
