My heart breaks for Tim and the entire Katello family. I loved visiting with Mel at the Kane County Flea Market over the years. He was a kind and funny man. Rest in peace, Mr. Katello. Sending you all our love.

I guess I'll be the first....There's sooo many great memories Ill always have to look back on worth my Grandfather.He was an amazing Dad to me. Not a summer would go by that we didn't have the Glen Miller band cranked up in the yard, with watermelon, cheap aldi burgers and corn on the cob. He loved to cook but loved the sales more. He will forever be missed.
