    Our uncle will be sorely missed by his loving nieces, Debbie Eichhammer of Baltimore, MD, Cindy Nicastro of Washington, PA, and Bonnie Martinell of Louisville, KY, and his nephew Joe Gross of Bartlett, IL.
    We will miss his many stories of growing up on Troy Hill with his many cousins, especially Paul Srsic, Michaeline Srsic, Billy Srsic, and the late Johnny Srsic.
    We will also miss the stories of his many adventures in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. And the Croation picnics at Schuetzen Park will never be the same without him.
    He can rest knowing that he was dearly loved.
