Chicago Center Retirees


When we reach our 70s, 80s, and 90s, we start thinking about our 'FINAL APPROACH'.
and it seems like all of us have some health issues: knee and/or hip replacements,
pacemakers, other heart problems, failing eyesight, hearing, and other parts that
start to wear out, including the big '
C": Cancer, of which there are several types.

We don't want to infringe on anyone's privacy, and we won't list any specifics without permission. The purpose of this Webpage is just to inform their friends and suggest how important a card or phone call can be to someone with significant health issues.

If you recognize some names below, of our fellow ZAU controllers, please let them know they are still remembered. A phone call or card would bring a smile for them and their families to let them know we care and are thinking about them, with prayers and many good memories when we were in Aurora.


0 W. Galena Blvd; Aurora, IL 60506



Roger had a serious stroke (Oct. 2015), and could not put weight on his right leg. Will probably be put on P.T.

new 'Health Issues' section, please send them
to me:
