Home: Havana, IL

Occupation: Welding and metal fabrication

Most memorable outing in Illinois? I would have to say when our hunting party of my brother, two nephews, two family friends and myself harvested deer the first day of the shotgun season. It was hard to pick one. I have many memories of both sucess and failure.
