Eugene G. Schroeder, 88, of North Riverside, died May 8, 2018. 

He was a man of many talents that he freely shared with those around him. He especially enjoyed the restoration of antique automobiles. Mr. Schroeder was a member of the Model T Ford Club and truly enjoyed the friends he made who shared this same passion. 

Mr. Schroeder was a man with an easy smile, a positive attitude toward people and life, and he enjoyed all that life offered and even an occasional corny joke. He was a retired sergeant with the Illinois National Guard with nearly 30 years of service. 

He was the husband of the late Lynette (nee Hanley); the father of William, Jeffrey (Ann), Janice (Thomas) McCarthy and Gail (Jeff) Mikyska; the grandfather of 13; and the great-grandfather of three. 

Services have been held. Interment was at Fairview Memorial Park Cemetery.

Conboy-Westchester Funeral Home, Westchester, handled arrangements.
