Campos: Bill Mastronardi will be missed as bowling champion, friend - Peoria Journal Star

Monday, January 23, 2017

I'm sure he wanted to shoe up and relive some of his old glory days. And there were many.Bill was a pioneer in some of the top-level area bowling events. He helped organize the first Peoria-Pekin match some 40 years ago, and helped put together the first Masters traveling league at around the same time.I'm glad I was able to share in a couple of good memories with Mastronardi. We were teammates, along with Argo, Hoesly and Jason Berry, when the Swanson's Lane team won the city tournament a few years ago.When my son, Andre, was still in junior leagues, he bowled his first junior city tournament with Bill's grandson, Matthew Sepich. Mastronardi was one of the first people to ever tell Andre that he thought he would be a good bowler some day. Andre has never forgotten that.Mastronardi was inducted into the Greater Peoria Bowling Association in 1984, and was competitive on the lanes for many years after that.There will be a visitation from 9-11 a.m. Saturday at the Davison-Fulton Woolsey-Wilton Funeral Home, followed by cremation services and military rites (Bill was a United States Air Force veteran).Then there will be a celebration of his life, where many of his long-time friends will get to share some of the great memories they made with Bill over the years.Condolences go out to his wife, Joyce, and the rest of his family. He will be missed, and I'll never forget him.MORE CONDOLENCES: Three days after Mastronardi's death, former Journal Star sports writer Lonnie Schwindenhammer died of a heart attack. He was just 53.I first met Lonnie during my early days at the paper, and quickly became friends. He was a very good writer, always fair and professional.It was kind of shocking when he told me he was quitting the paper late last year. And now he's gone, way too soon.BACK ON TOP: Defending champions Steve and Sammy Taylor put themselves in position to repeat at champions of the Brothers Tournament at Landmark Lanes.They finished with a scratch pinfall total of 1,466, 18 pins better than Gary and Rob Strait. Steve Taylor led the way with a 754 set, while Sammy added 712.Gary Robinson leads scratch singles with 756. Robinson and Steve Leininger are the leaders in the brothers-in-law division with 1,317.Defending champs Clayton and Logan Wunder lead the juvenile division again (1,365), and Ryan and Drew Larion are the adult/juvenile lead...

Christmas Fund: Funeral directors helping people through Christmas Fund - Peoria Journal Star

Monday, December 26, 2016

Star Christmas Fund."We're in the profession of helping people. The Christmas Fund helps a lot of people, especially little ones," said George Henderson from Henderson Funeral Home & Crematory in Pekin."As funeral directors, we're all involved in our community. Making a donation to the Christmas Fund each year as a group benefits all of central Illinois," said District 8 secretary/treasurer Ryan Johnson from Knapp-Johnson Funeral Home in Morton.District 8 President Madison Fox from Deiters Funeral Home & Crematory in Washington and East Peoria dropped off the group's first donation at the Journal Star office in Peoria in 2014."The receptionist at the Journal Star told me about someone she knew who would be a beneficiary of the Christmas Fund," Fox said. "After hearing that story, I'm so glad we're making a donation each year."Discussions in 2014 among group members about making an annual charitable donation led to the decision to contribute to the Christmas Fund."Our end goal as an organization isn't to gather a bunch of money," Johnson said."We were looking to donate to something that would benefit the most people in need and we thought the Christmas Fund was perfect for that," Henderson said.The group donated $500 in 2014 and 2015 and $200 this year to the Christmas Fund. Money for the donation comes from annual and meeting dues paid by group members and fr...
