    Anthony and Christopher. I just discovered this terrible loss today. I met your father when he built the Proviso Township executive offices. After which I did many jobs for your dad. I believe one of your homes as well. Please except my deepest sympathy. He would consult me on colors for a project and his favorite saying was “It will pop” And it sure would.
    Great guy I miss “the pop” he brought to every project.

Please share your thoughts ...
