We appreciate the generous donations in support of the beautification and memorial project in honor of John. Your donation will fund strategic improvements along the N 2nd Street Corridor in collaboration with the City of Loves Park. Details coming soon to include renderings for a new memorial park on the southeast corner of N. 2nd Street and River Lane.

Investments by the Family


In addition to the beautification and memorial project in collaboration with the city, John's family will make improvements to the Dairy Depot commercial building to include new awnings, flowers, cohesive branding, painting, and garage repairs. Special thanks to Brad Long and the Northwestern IL Building and Construction Trades for recommending top talent for these projects.

Dairy Depot Beautification


We are excited to unveil this rendering by Mic Solon at Montel Customs, which demonstrates how we can beautify Dairy Depot in preparation for the 2019 season. Over the next few months, we will coordinate with the City and IDOT to help initiate these wonderful ideas and will keep you posted on our progress!
