“Teddy” and I attended Edison School in Stickney, IL. His brother Jerry was always with him. “Teddy” was my brother Bernie’s buddy working on stock cars that they raced at Santa Fe Race course. When they started those engines I could hear the sound a block away where I lived. I still live in Stickney and drive past his house frequently.

I have forwarded the obituary information on to my classmates that graduated from Morton West High School in 1963. His obituary certainly shares his accomplishments and the extensive family that will experience his loss.
