Obituary for John George Streicher

John George Streicher, age 80, of McHenry, passed away Saturday, May 26, 2018, at his home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born August 26, 1937 in Chicago to LeRoy and Elizabeth (Webber) Streicher. On July 3, 1962, he married Linda P. Knobeloch.

Raised in Chicago, John graduated from New Trier High School, where he excelled in the field of gymnastics and achieved the state all-round championship. In recognition of his talent, John was awarded a gymnastics scholarship to the University of Indiana. After the death of his father, he left college to join the U.S. Marine Corps, where he served from 1961 to 1966 and obtained the rank of Sergeant.

For over 60 years, John enjoyed a career working for Craftwood Lumber Co. in Highland Park. At the time of his retirement, the City of Highland Park proclaimed that each year, Dec. 10 would be commemorated as John G. Streicher Day. In his later years, John was also the former owner of the Main Street Saloon in McHenry.

John is survived by two children, Rebecca (Daniel) Laudick and Michael (Barbara) Streicher; three grandchildren, Daniel Jr., Christopher, and Zachery Laudick; two sisters, Rose (Marty) Forbs and Marlene “Martie” (Phil) Franklin.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Linda, on March 4, 2013; a brother, LeRoy; and two sisters, Rita & Margo.
