RIP Jimmy. We went kindergarten thru 8th grade school together and also played on the little league White Sox team about 1964-65. Although we have not seen each other in many years, my heart hurts at hearing of your passing!

Jimmy Kaleckas, pictured here in the Dorgan basement on Tripp in July of 1967. Hes strumming the guitar plugged into a red amp made of cigar boxes and is accompanied by Janis Dorgan Wilson in her Communion dress, Brenza brothers Roger in green shirt with brushes and Randy singing into the vacuum cleaner attachment, Dennis Williamson playing what appears to be a souvenir bat and me in the back on drums.
We were very good friends when we were kids. In addition to this band, Jimmy and I also played in a Beatles lip-syncing band. He was George. Roy Brenza was John. Wally Zielinski was Paul and Roger Brenza and I traded off as Ringo.
But my favorite times with Jimmy were when he was Illya Kuryakin and I was Napoleon Solo of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. battling THRUSH in his basement.
We lost touch after high school but thanks to the Tripp street reunion hosted by Jimmys sister Lynn Kaleckas Vithoulkas-Setlak in 2014, we picked up where we left off 40+ years before, if only for an afternoon.
Rest In Peace, Jimmy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your whole family.
