John Horeled 1951-2018

John Horeled

John J. Horeled, 66, of Crystal Lake and a lifelong resident of McHenry County, died Thursday, May 3, 2018. He was born November 1, 1951, in Harvard to Joseph and Helen (nee Keeley) Horeled. 

John graduated from Marion Central High School in 1969. He later graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in economics in 1973. John then graduated from Valparaiso University School of Law in 1976. John practiced law in McHenry County for over 42 years. He was involved in the Illinois State Bar Association for 40 years and was also involved in several section councils and task forces. 

John married Heather McLeod on June 11, 1977, and enjoyed over 40 years together. He was a traditionalist, who believed that life renews itself through church attendance, community service, college football, and every spring on "opening day." He enjoyed his family and was a devoted father, coaching 17 years of soccer, attending numerous artistic performances, and far too many track and cross country meets to count. 

He will be fondly remembered by his wife, Heather; children, Matthew (Anna) of Ashland, Ky., Julia (Kevin) Mick of Woodstock, and Joshua (fiance, Karalyn) of Springfield; grandchildren, Elijah, Isaac, Torunn, and Nathan; and his many cousins.

John was a former director of the Hebron State Bank and Illinois Guardianship Association, and was a former vestry member and senior warden of St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Crystal Lake. He was also a past president of the Notre Dame Club of McHenry County, the YMCA of McHenry County, the Crystal Lake Kiwanis, and was the founding president of the McHenry County Community Foundation. He was also a proud member of The Union League Club of Chicago and the Bohemian Lawyers Association of Chicago.
