Jeffrey LaVine (1949 – 2012)

Jeffrey C. LaVine, age 63 a resident of Twin Lakes, died Saturday May 12th 2012 at Aurora Medical Center-Burlington.

Born on March 4th 1949 in Chicago IL, he is the son of the late Harvey B. LaVine and June (Hyman) LaVine of Chicago, IL.

He was educated in the schools of Chicago and its suburbs and graduated from the University of IL-Chicago with a teaching degree and a specialization in history.

He was currently employed as a history teacher at Wilmot Union High School. He was popular with the students and was an avid fan and supporter of the school?s girls? softball team. While he loved the subject of history as a whole, he was a Civil War buff. He also enjoyed music, classic rock to even more modern hits. He never completely let go of his long-time dream of being a rock star.
