MARENGO - Raymond E. Landwehr, 81, of Marengo died Wednesday, March 31, 2010, at his home surrounded by his family.
He was born May 4, 1928, to Louis and Louise (Stender) Landwehr, at his parents' home in Bensenville, which at the time was a 100-year-old farmhouse located at what is now O'Hare Field Airport. He married Dolores Moellenkamp on May 27, 1950, at St. John's Lutheran Church in Mount Prospect.
He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from 1952-54. He was in engineering school at Fort Belvoir in Arlington, Va., where he learned drafting. His squad's motto in Korea was "Never Impossible," which is how he lived his life. While in the service, he earned a Korean Service Ribbon with two Bronze Stars, two Overseas Bars Merit Unit Citation, a National Defense Service Medal, and a United States Service Medal.
He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Marengo for 37 years, St. John's Lutheran in Mount Prospect for 23 years, and St. Johannes in Bensenville for 22 years. He worked at International Harvester from 1948 until his retirement in 1973.
His true passion was building homes, which he did after his retirement. He always was ready to lend a helping hand, especially to his children. He loved gardening, camping, playing cribbage, pinnacle and more recently sudoku. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife, visiting all 50 states and wintering in Arizona for the past 18 years.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Dolores; his children, David (Lori) Landwehr and Karen Landwehr, both of Marengo; his grandchildren, Dan and Tim Landwehr; a stepgrandson, Dylan Stephens; his brothers, Ed (Bea) Landwehr of Arlington Heights and Arnold (Eleanor) Landwehr of Mount Prospect; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
