Buresh, Leonard - Fox River Grove, Il  
Leonard Buresh Born: June 11, 1911; in Cary, IL Died: April 18, 2015; in Fox River Grove, IL Leonard "Len" Buresh, of Fox River Grove, passed away April 18, 2015. He was born in Cary, on June 11, 1911. Len is survived by his son, Jeffrey (Royce) Buresh; a daughter-in-law, Sue Buresh; his grandchildren, Amy (Steve) Bruns, Michael Buresh and Jessica Krawczykowski; as well as a great-grandson, Devin Debowski. He is preceded in death by his wife, Ruth Buresh; a son, Gregory Buresh; and his siblings, Martin Buresh, Lawrence Buresh, Josephine Reynolds, Sylvia Peterson and Dorothy Crump. He served in the U.S. Merchant Marines in WW II as a radio operator (ensign) aboard an ammunition ship. After the war, he married his beloved wife, Ruth, and raised his two sons in Fox River Grove, where he lived for 67 years. He spent much of his working years with Illinois Bell. He was passionately vocal about the "Forgotten Heroes of WW II", and put much effort into helping the Merchant Marines gain awareness and be recognized for the critical support role they played in the success of the war. The Merchant Marine death rate was 1 in 26, the highest rate among the services in World War II. For 43 years, the U.S. government denied them veteran status and benefits until Congress corrected the injustice by finally giving them veterans' status in 1988. Len was often seen walking his dogs, Fluffy and Happy, everyday down by the river. He had a great sense of humor and a quick wit that brought smiles to the faces of everyone he came in contact with. His roaring laughter was contagious. Visitation will be held on May 16, 2015, at the Kahle-Moore Funeral Home, 403 Silver Lake Rd., Cary beginning at 9:00 AM and concluding with a Memorial Service and military honors at 11:00 AM. The service will be officiated by Paul Rice of Willow Creek Community Church. A celebration of life luncheon will be held at Marzano's in McHenry, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made to help purchase a park bench and plaque in his honor that will be at Lion's park in Fox River Grove. For information, 847-639-3817 or kahlemoore.com

Butler, Carl J. - Crystal Lake  
Carl J. Butler Born: Date; In Town Died: Date; In Town Carl Jon Butler died on Monday night, April 20, 2015, at the Loyola University Medical Center, after suffering a long illness. He leaves his wife, Vicki Pekarek; his children, Paul (Julie), Meghan and Jon Matthew Butler; grandchildren, Madison, Allison and Callum Butler; brothers, Corwin (Sharon) and David (Carol) Butler; step children, Brad Pascoe and Sandra (Kyle) Moore; their children, Annette Moore and Zachary Pascoe; and many friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Wayne and Leota Butler. Born and raised in Illinois, Carl has been a long time resident of Crystal Lake. In his early years, Carl attended high school in Elmhurst, and later attended Southern Illinois University, where he met his first wife, started a family and lifelong friendships. Later he moved back to Northern Illinois, met his second wife, graduated with a bachelor's degree from Elmhurst College, and went on to become Valedictorian of his master's class at Aurora University. Carl lived for ten years in Elburn, where he built a home and grew his family and career. During his mid-life, Carl moved to the Crystal Lake area for a change of pace. He was tired of the hustle and stress of business life, so he decided to become a bus driver for a local school district and later an independent contractor with his own trucking company. During this time, he met his third wife, with whom he spent the last 23 years of his life. Carl was a high energy, loving man who never seemed to stop planning for the future. He was a worker to the core, and took pride in what he had achieved at the end of a long day. Carl was an avid gardener who seemed happiest after a hard day's work in the spring sun, planting his yard with his wife. He would often take a moment to reflect on the results of his labor, mix up his favorite Vodka and orange juice cocktail, and walk around the yard, admiring his work with a satisfied smile on his face. As an outdoorsman, Carl also spent significant time in Eagle River Wisconsin, reveling in life's simple pleasures, like long walks through the woods. He enjoyed camping with his children and grandchildren, and sitting around a campfire solving all the world's problems, with anyone who was lucky enough to be around. Carl also had a passion for animals and a sensitivity for their wellbeing. Carl might be most remembered as a consummate comedian. In the 1970's, he had a brief stint doing standup, and he continued his ability to make people laugh, defuse tension, open dialogue with strangers and provide endless joy (and a hard time) to family and friends through jokes, one liners and surprises until the day he passed. A memorial service will be held at Willow Funeral Home, 1514 W. Algonquin Road, Algonquin IL from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., on Saturday, May 2, 2015. The service will begin at 3:00 p.m.
