Linda (Brad Long) of Mackinaw, Ill., Maureen (Robert Perez) of Wausau and Timothy (Lara) Hough of Round Lake, Ill.

Dr. Hough practiced Chiropractic for 12 years in Waukegan, and 18 years in Grayslake prior to retiring in 1992. Frank served on the Grayslake High School Board of Education for five years, served as a village trustee on the Village Board of Sister Bay for six years and also served on the Sister Bay Board of Appeals.
