Richard E. Mastaler, Age 78, longtime resident of West Chicago, passed away Tuesday, December 20, 2022.

He was born on September 16, 1944, in Chicago, IL to Adolf and Florence Mastaler. Rich was a US Army Veteran serving in the 1st Infantry in the Vietnam War. He was a dedicated member of the VFW Post 6791 helping with bingo and annual steak fry and was a member of the American Legion Post 300 both of West Chicago. Rich was united in marriage to the late Lois Schmitz over 30 years. He was a carpenter for many years at his (step) Father Jake Smith’s company FloJay Construction. He then went to work at Jelsert in the Maintenance Dept. over 20 years. He was a very good man and a wonderful uncle to his nephews and nieces. He was a father figure to several, whether it being an example of how to be a good man and husband or walking a niece down the aisle on her wedding day. He enjoyed the time spent with his great-nieces and nephews. Rich was always willing to help others, but never wanted to be a bother to anyone, so would never ask for help.  

Rich is survived by his sisters, Shirley (Larry) Grubbs, and Barbara Kuna; brother, Joseph Mastaler; nephews and nieces, Timothy Grubbs, Tom (Gina) Grubbs, Tracy (David) Midde, Billy Kuna, Joe Mastaler Jr., Scott Mastaler, Charles Mastaler, Virginia (Scott) Serek, several great-nephews and great-nieces; relatives and friends.
