On Monday, October 12, 2015, our family lost a husband, a father, a brother, a grandfather, an uncle, a friend; a remarkable man with a prodigious heart.

At approximately 11pm on October 12th, James Arthur Spicak was fatally struck by an automobile near his mailbox in the 16000 block of West Pope Boulevard in Prairie View, IL.  

The hearts of his family and friends have been shattered as this beloved man has been taken from us so tragically.  
An active investigation is underway to find the individual responsible for our loss.  We need information, we need leads.  We need someone to come forward to share anything they know.  Our hearts need to find peace. 

Help us RAISE MONEY to fund a REWARD for legitimate tips that lead to a conviction for this fatal hit and run.  All donations will go toward a reward offered by the investigating department.  

Any contribution amount is appreciated.  Our family is grateful for your compassion and generosity.

With heavy hearts, we will move forward together, in honor and loving memory of James Spicak.

Any unused funds will be donated to St Jude's Children's Hospital.
