Arch Gott Obituary
Arch F. Gott, 97, former President of the Elgin Leach Corp, and Chairman of the Board of E.L. Industries. A staunch alumnus of the University of Notre Dame, President of the Class of 1937 and member of the Notre Dame Monogram Club, as a superb college track man. During WWII, he received his Master's degree at Harvard University through the U.S. Navy. He then served as a First Lieutenant on the USS E.T. Collins, AP 147, participating in almost all the WWII Major Theaters of Operation in the South Pacific. After 46 years of dedicated work for his company, he retired in 1983. For the next 21 years he provided constant volunteer service with the Executive Service Corp of Chicago, directing expert consulting projects for a host of non-profit and public agencies throughout the Chicagoland area. During this time, he also volunteered at the Art Institute of Chicago, other Non-Profit organizations and served on the Board of the Arthritis Foundation. His love of family, his country and his church was a constant in his life. He left a lasting impression on everyone he encountered-always smiling. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arch and Helen Gott and his sister Helen Mary Migely. He is survived by his wife of 72 years, Anne Marie Wall Gott; his son Laurence M.D. (Mary Kay) Gott; his daughter Christine (Robert) Dickemper; four grandchildren: Bridget (Kevin) Kennedy; James (Kerry) Fish; Daniel (Heather) Gott; Kathleen (Thomas) Boscher; three step-grandchildren: Jennifer Hicks; Julie (Colby) Callaway; and Robert Jr. (Caryn) Dickemper; 11 great grandchildren and 4 step-great grandchildren.
