Dear Vanderboegh Family,
The Chavez family, neighbors of Paul and Julie, would like to extend our condolences on your loss. We met Mr. Vanderboegh five years ago when we moved in next to Paul and Julie and right away his charasmatic persona was evident. When he had the opportunity he would always take time to say hello especially to our three young daughters. Once again our deepest sympathies.

Jack and I worked together at Whirlpool for a number of years, and he was very good at his job. Whether working for him, or with him, he was a good teammate. Jack brought his humor to work, and he could be very funny.
Jack's family took first place, and I could tell that soon after I met him. He could talk a lot about family, and was very proud of them all.
When I visited him in the last year, high

Dear Vanderboegh Family,
Joy and I were saddened by reading the announcement of Jack’s death. Our hearts go out to you. Jack was special and a man of gifts. He was certainly proud of each family and often shared stories. I hope the annual fishing trip will continue. We became acquainted through a support group – Man to Man. And, many of those members will and do remember him for that special plate of cookies that he made and brought to

We were so sorry to learn about the loss of Jack. Our parents were such good friends and had such fun together, it's hard to believe that they are now all gone from our lives. Fortunately we have such good memories of our times together to bring smiles through the pain and sense of loss. I always enjoyed your parents so much. They were wonderful people and such fun to be around. I want you to know that you're in our thoughts and prayers, and that I'll greatly miss my connection with the Vanderboegh family.

Larry, I am sorry to hear you lost your father. Also my dad, Melvin L. Koehler died this year on May 17th. I hope all your family could be together to celebrate his life. I see that you lost your mother in 2010. My mother is still in Marion and is the same age as your father. I wish you and your family well. Deborah
