Donald A. Regul, age 71, passed away Sunday, January 29, 2012 at Northern Illinois Medical Center with family by his side.
Don was born March 4, 1940 in Chicago to Ed and Frances Regul. He married Carol Sokol on October 7, 1961. They moved to Oakwood Hills in 1978, and McHenry in 1997. Don worked for V. Mueller Surgical Instrument Mfg. for 37 years.
Don loved living in and raising his family in McHenry county. He was very handy and liked doing fix-up projects around his home. He was always willing to help friends and neighbors fix anything. If anyone needed a tool, Don probably had it.
Don enjoyed playing cards. He played Cribbage with Carol every day, but his passion was Pinochle. He also liked to travel and spend time with his family and friends. His quick comebacks and his sense of humor will be missed.
Don is survived by his wife Carol; his children, Steve (Paula) Regul of Lake In The Hills, Glen (Tracey) Regul, Lynn (Brian) Hitztaler of Wonder Lake; and his three grandchildren, Christopher, Amy and Nicholas.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and a sister, Pat Dubenic.
