Hamilton Wings was founded on a loving memory and we are so pleased to honor the memory of
Mr. Richard Schif with this program.
“It with great joy that my family and I offer this donation to Hamilton Wings in memory of my father, Richard Schif,
who went home to the Lord on August 1st at the age of 94.
How thrilled he would be knowing a facilitator/mentor program will be developed because of his support.
My sweet father was a dedicated worker, whether in his job as a NICOR repairman or as a volunteer at the VFW, American Legion or his church. He never sought the limelight and was happy to remain behind the scenes, ensuring that everything ran smoothly. His big smile and positive words brought out the best in everyone. He would be so pleased that this gift will be used
to foster that same spirit of acceptance and encouragement.
Thank you for providing us with a perfect means to honor our father and grandfather.”

“Our Grandpa would have been so proud to make this donation. He never missed a choral or band concert, school play or sporting event for us. He was a regular at Washington Elementary School, Abbott Middle School, Larkin High School, Augustana College and Loyola University. This unending support continued with his great-grandchildren, as he made the hour drive north to Waukegan to watch soccer and baseball games, gymnastics practices and school events.
Our Grandpa’s belief in us encouraged us to try our hardest in everything we did and to always take on new challenges,
even if they seemed difficult to attain. Our Grandpa’s support encouraged us to reach many goals and
we are proud that he will help other kids to meet their goals.”
