Can you prove your slander dipshit? It would be pretty easy to trace your ISP and sue your stupid ass. And learn to spell. The average Topix user makes Granite City sound like the white ESTL.

Have to say I went to school with Terry Jr.,then knew his dad from carpenters.They were both stand up guy's,I never saw jr start a fight,but if you wantd it he could bring it.I would see hid dad around the jobs,he was always respectful of people,at least what I saw.
Terry was fun in school,always cool and smooth with the babes.

It's nice to hear someone who remembered my family. My father (Guy) passed away in April of 04
and of all the boys ( all I knew and liked) Guy had to be my favorite, let people say what they want he was a gentleman and very kind. I was never ever dis respected by any of them. Guy I called GOOD GUY, I will always remember him as the one who tried to keep it clean. HAHA if there was such a thing as a clean fight, I never saw him pull out a knife ( many said he did) or only fight if his brothers were around. He was not out looking for trouble, I am glad to have known GOOD GUY.

<quoted text>At least they were not Cowards.And back in the 1960's and 1970's it was common for a couple of guys to get into a fist fight and then it was over.Those kinda guys back then had a certain amount of respect for each other.You would rarely hear about a guy sueing a guy if he lost a fight to another guy.You never would hear about a bunch of blacks showing there stupid ass and trying to act like they owned the place either.Now in the year 2010 all you see is a bunch disrespectful punks,with no class.
amen!!!!!!!

The Garesche Homes in Madison, Illinois in the early 1970's had some tough guys grow up there. There was this one family that had like 8 or 9 boys that grew up in Madison. They were a tough bunch. As far as connected type gangsters, I've heard of stories that there was gangsters in Madison County, but as far as Madison, Illinois I'm not sure. There was this place in Collinsville, Illinois that used to have connected type gangsters hang out. As I remember, my dad told me that my grandfather used to play cards and gamble there. The place was off of 157 if I remember correctly. Now, I'm not positive my dad was telling me the truth, but I do know there was always rumors that my grandpa knew some of the gangsters from the late 50's to the late 60's.

The family from Collinsville was the Wortmans/workmans The house is on the line between Collinsville and Caseyville on 157 huge White house on top of the hill. I went to school with Busters Grandaughter. My father told me that My Grandfather (his dad) was killed in Leavenworth prison By Wortmans Men.My father passed away before I ever asked too many questions about the story. But I do know my grandfather did serve time in Leavenworth and is buried in the National cemetery there.
