Born to Ian and Isabel (nee Squire) McNish at Little Kiltra in Eaton Socon, Bedfordshire, England, on Sept. 24, 1935, he was educated at Hill Brow School at Brent Knoll in Somerset and Sutton Valence School in Kent, UK. It’s amazing he survived childhood, as he spent breaks scouring the post-World War II beaches with his brother and dear friend Colin Day, collecting and igniting cordite from unexploded munitions that washed ashore. McNish was a cadet at Warchash Maritime Academy, and then became a commissioned officer in the British Merchant Navy, sailing throughout the Commonwealth, Great Lakes and world. McNish’s brief acting career included the 1958 film “Battle of the V-1,” staring Sir Christopher Lee and Michael Rennie. His 40 years in the travel-leisure industry included time with Air Canada, Sunflight Holidays and Apple Vacations. Living the McNish family motto of “truth, not guile” earned McNish a highly respected reputation and nickname of “Mr. Mexico” within the tourism industry. At retirement, he was personally recognized for service to Mexico by Mexican President Vicente Fox. McNish was a true eccentric and Renaissance man who meticulously studied the trades to learn Windsor chair-making, stained glass, pottery, stone-carving, blacksmithing, cabinetry and boat building. He never tired of chatting about various craft projects with strangers trapped in the airplane seats next to him. He shared a love of The Grove National Historic Landmark with his wife, who served 25 years on the board of The Grove Heritage Association, contributed countless volunteer hours supporting special events and educational programs, and backed the creation of a blacksmith shop. He mentored Scouts curious about the woodworking merit badge, and one of those Scouts went on to become the woodshop teacher at Glenbrook South. Alec followed his own path and encouraged his children to do the same. He valued self-reliance and was never one to let the past or matters beyond his control become a distraction. He died surrounded by loved ones and without a wrinkle on his face. McNish will be remembered for his intense curiosity, brilliant mind, friendship, expert meatcarving skills and his inability to finish the punchline of the train-ticket joke without bursting into teary-eyed laughter. A memorial service is to be held on May 27 at The Grove National Historic Landmark in Glenview. In lieu of flowers, please donate to The Grove Heritage Association or Tidewell Hospice of Port Charlotte, Florida. Jeffrey Lerner Jeffrey Lerner, 71, of Glenview, died March 14. Eugenia D Kreckler Eugenia D Kreckler, 91, formerly of Glenview, died March 13. She was the beloved wife of the late Hans Kreckler for 61 years; loving mother of Judy Parker (Bill) and the late Warren Kreckler (Sophia Gates); cherished grandmother of Christina Swain (fiance John Sinclair) and Julie Dickerson (Joshua); loving great grandmother of Nicki Swain; dear aunt of Jan Evans (Scott) and numerous other nieces and nephews; and loving sister-in-law of Don Schwartz. She was predeceased by brothers Josef and Bernard Kolodziej, and sisters Madeline Berger and Elizabeth Schwartz. She emigrated from Germany in 1954 and worked for Diebel and Die Manufacturing for 30 years and for Kuhn’s Deli and Cafe (as a cook) for seven years. Above all, she was devoted to her husband and family. Antonette Lynn Antonette Lynn, 87, of Glenview, died March 16. She was born Antonette Haupt on April 3, 1930, in Chicago to Esther and Anthony Haupt. Antonette loved travel, studying genealogy and spending time with her family and her “club” of friends, many of whom she knew since childhood. She was an avid reader of history and biography. She was a 30-year member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wilmette. She graduated from St. Scholastica High School in Chicago in 1948 and married Raymond Lynn in 1951. In 1960, they were one of the first families to make a home in the newly developing suburb of Mount Prospect. The family was one of the founding members of St. Emily’s Parish until they moved to Glenview in 1984. Antonette is survived by her husband of 66 years, Raymond; children Barbara (Russell) Guard, Robert (Sarah) Lynn, Joseph (Lisa) Lynn and Marybeth Pitchkites; grandchildren Jordan Lynn, Caroline Lynn, Lara (Jonathan) Dupree, Rebecca Lynn, Max Pitchkites, Emma Lynn and Kristina Pitchkites; brother Thomas (Sandra) Haupt; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her son, Richard. Have someone’s life you’d like to honor?
