Our John Greer Class of 1953 suffered a double loss recently with the deaths of Larry Oyler and Delores Dilley Cox within days of each other.

Both spent their lives in Hoopeston, contributing to their families, churches, and organizations in many ways. Always a cheery optimist, Delores was devoted to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Larry tirelessly gave his leadership qualities to the local business community and civic organizations.

We pause to pay tribute to these two special classmates who helped make Hoopeston a better place to live.
