Bert C. Metz

Bert C. Metz, 94, a longtime resident of LaGrange Park, died July 4, 2023. 

Mr. Metz was born in Brookfield to the late Loretta and Bert Metz and he was the brother of late sisters June, Mary and Jackie. 

He served in U.S. Army Intelligence at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., from 1950 to 1952, and then returned home to what became a long, productive career as a systems analyst and methods specialist with Western Electric. 

Well-known in his community, he volunteered his time for many years with the Village Caucus and Little League Baseball. Selfless, kind and wise, Bert touched the lives of many and will be dearly missed.

Mr. Metz was the father of Gary, Steven and Linda; the grandfather of Ryan, Lea, Michelle and Michael; and an uncle and cousin to many. He was preceded in death by Gladys, his beloved wife of 50 years, and their son, Brian. 

Private services have been held.
