Getz was raised in Beverly/Morgan Park. He was a Mt. Carmel High School alumni. Getz was originally a carpenter and then a truck driver. Getz was passionate about God, his country and his life. His favorite place to be outdoors, and the highlight of his summers, was the cottage in Michigan with his family for his Fourth of July parade party.
Getz was the life of the party, loved music, talk radio, going to his daughter’s softball games, card games with his friends, telling jokes and singing karaoke.
Above all else, he was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle and brother-in-law. He will be deeply missed.
