    You must be very proud of your dad and his free spirit- John Settino was a sweet guy from Chicago who will be remembered for his love of life, the horses, and his music. You did a great job of caring for him Louise! Love, Mar

  3. Remember:
    My dad went to the race track (work) regularly. He would feed birds bread when he after he would park. One day some person was yelling at him about the birds pooping on his car. My dad says they don’t poop on my car. Maybe you should feed them too.

    He told this one for a long time.

  4. My father may not be with us anymore but he will never be forgotten. I remember when Dad and Ma lived in Villa Park and the kids were throwing snowballs at dad. We were laughing and and both the kids and my dad. I chuckle when I think back.

    One Christmas dad spun a quarter and the kids lost interest in all the gifts and they spun the quarter all night.

    He use to tease the twins he had a lot of fun with them.

  5. He always said laughter kept him young and you have to laugh to stay healthy.
    I loved him and always will cherish the memories.

    When he would refer to money as the “the green”.

    My grandfather did not fly in an airplane when traveling and he always tried to con us into going with him. He would tell me that famous people ride the train. So when we picked him up he gave me a napkin that read: To Louise sorry I missed you on the train Rick Springfield (my teenage heart throb). He stuck with this story even as I got older.

    Picking Louie and I up every Friday to spend the weekends at their house. We would sit in the front seat on the arm rest (no seat belt back then) on 290 and Louie and I would switch seats at the Magikist (the half way point to there house)

    HIm letting us play on the piano as kids.

    He had a lot of patience and jokes.

    I know you heard the one about:
    The guy who went to the Dr. and the Dr. told him as crazy and the patient said he wanted a second opinion. The Dr. said well your ugly too.
    Even at an older age how did he remember those jokes? He told me he wrote them down.
