Harold E. “Pete” Nott, 85, passed away Sunday, July 17, 2022 at Rush Copley Medical Center surrounded by his loving family. Born April 22, 1937 in Maquon, IL, he is survived by his wife of 62 years, Judy; daughters, Cathy (Brian) Otto and Debbie (John) Lipski; grandchildren, Jessica (Thomas) Kennedy, Katelyn Otto, Jennifer (Brennan) Meyer and Daniel (Allison) Otto; great grandchildren, Michael and Andrew Kennedy, Audrey Meyer and Riley Otto. He is also survived by his brothers, Donald (Betty) and Frederick (Linda); and many nieces and nephews. Harold is preceded in death by his parents, Harvey and Irene (Peck) Nott; sisters, Dorothy (the late Donald) Howell and Shirley (the late Charles) McCormick; and brothers, Robert (Frances) and Charles (the late Connie). As a high school basketball player, he was nicknamed “Pete” by his coach and the moniker stuck for over 70 years. More interested in basketball than books, he convinced a young Judy Terry to complete his accounting homework for him. This alliance eventually led to romance, wedding bells and a lifetime together. Harold proudly served in the United States Air Force as a Psychiatric Ward Specialist where he earned the Good Conduct Medal. He retired from the Ohio Casualty Insurance Company as a Claims Supervisor after 30+ years in the industry. He enjoyed spending an afternoon on the golf course and traveling with family and friends (especially cruises). Harold was an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan in spite of living in Chicago Cubs territory and could often be seen sporting Fighting Illini gear. Harold was a member and past Worshipful Master of the Masonic Lodge in Oswego, Raven Lodge #303, as well as a member of the Medinah Shriners. He was a long-time member of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Oswego. Family will be receiving guests Friday, July 29, 2022 from 3:00-7:00pm with a memorial service at 7:00pm at Dieterle Memorial Home, 1120 S. Broadway, in Montgomery. A Masonic service will also be performed during the 7:00 hour. A private family burial will take place at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery at a future date.
