A long time Grandwood Park resident, retired Marine Corps Master Sergeant, self-proclaimed professional landscaper, and all around great neighbor has passed away. Harry Westbrook died on March 9th after a long ilness. Harry was active in the community for many many, years having served as President of the Warren Waukegan Fire Protection District and assisting with various community events too numerous to mention. His meticulously manicured and perfectly maintained yard was the envy of all who laid eyes on it. He loved his wife and family, the United State Marine Corps and his country. He will be sorely missed by all the knew him. So long Harry Westbrook. Semper Fidelis.

Our condolences to Judy Westbrook and family.


Russell "Randy" Gunderson of Grandwood Park died on March 13th. Randy and his wife Kathy, have lived in our neighborhood for many years. Randy held a PhD in Clinical Psychology and a Masters Degree in Social Work. Most recently he was the Principal for the John Powers Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Vernon Hills, Illinois. He was a long time officer of the Warren Band Boosters and an accomplished drummer for his very popular wedding band, The Flares. He is certainly going to be missed by all who knew him or benefited from his expertise and kindness.

Our condolences to his wife Kathy Gunderson, children Holly and Patrick, family and friends.
