Shared by Rod Getz, Getz Fire Equipment
It is with deep sadness, but with Joy to announce that my Father Melvin Getz passed away early last night (12:15 am, on 05/05/15). He had suffered so long and in the Hospital for over 6 weeks, it was a blessing for the Lord to take him home. He told the family 10 days ago that he was ready and wanting to go see Jesus and be in Heaven. The Angels took him there quietly and peaceful.
He loved our business and industry and will always be my "Mentor and Hero".
Visitation will be on Thursday at Davison-Woolsey-Wilton Funeral Home (2408 West Willow Knolls Dr., Peoria, IL 61614):
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Funeral will be @ Apostolic Christian Church on Friday @ 10:00 am
Thanks for all your prayers. God Bless!
