Dickie, Tommy and Donnie Beres lived down the block on Marquette St until the family moved to a larger house on N Green Bay Rd. in the late 1950's   My brother Vern and I had great times playing with the Beres boys in the mid-1950's when we attended St John Nepomuk GS.

Dickie, our good times are not forgotten.
