Lawrence J. Tessmer, 62, departed this life on earth to his new heavenly home on September 30, 2017.
Larry was dedicated to his job working for ComEd for close to 39 years until his health failed him and he could not continue. Throughout his life he enjoyed time with his family, swimming at the RecPlex and seeing his favorite groups in concert. He will be missed immensely by all who loved him.

Larry was preceded in death by his grandmother, Laura Aryman; father, Earl Tessmer; sister, Marvlynn Wallace; brother-in-law Bob Wallace; brother Jay Tessmer; and brother-in-law Dick Neil.
