After my Father Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor purchased a Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow built in 1927, I began to get injured as a Lombard resident homeowner at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA. My Father lived upstairs on the second level “in-law” apartment and Nathan and I lived on the first floor. Our family shared the basement after we purchased a New Montgomery Ward Washer and Dryer set, as well as a new Sears Kenmore Dishwasher downstairs. My Father also purchased a New Toro Snowblower from the Lombard Toro Dealer on Westmore-Meyers Road and a New Sears Gas Lawn Mower. I purchased a New Sears Deluxe Lawn Mower in Oak Brook, Illinois USA.
I became injured by a Lombard Policeman who stumped my right foot and broke my big toe after he offered to take me home and walked into the Master Bedroom at our Lombard Brick Bungalow, 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, in Lombard. I had been working as a Certified Languages Interpreter and Translator in Aurora for Interlate Languages Systems, Inc., Illinois. I was hit on the head from behind while the Lombard Policeman was in the Master Bedroom and suffered from a severe head concussion that made me unconscious and unable to walk with the broke right toe and injured right foot caused by the Lombard Policeman. I was kidnapped from the Master Bedroom while I lived as a Lombard resident homeowner in District 5, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois USA.
On another occasion, while I was sleeping in the Master Bedroom, strangers came into my bedroom and began to induce injections around my neck and body, before I was kidnapped and removed from my bed.
The third time I was kidnapped from the Master Bedroom after Midnight, I was sleeping and several skin-headed men surrounded my bed and began to pull me away and carried me out of the Master Bedroom while I was wearing my pajamas, dragged me outside to the street where the Lombard neighbors John, Liz, Shawn, Brian, and other witnesses saw them force me outside and took me away from the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA.
The fourth time was in October of the year 2000 and I ended up at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital.
During 1994, I was living and residing in the Village of Lombard where I continued my work teaching, interpreting and translating in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese in the Chicagoland area working for Berlitz Schools of Languages in Chicago with June the receptionist, Josepha, Mila for ESL Training and other business professionals and colleagues, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Schaumburg, and the Arroyave Academy of Languages in Arlington Heights and Highland Park, North Shore for Lake County, in Illinois USA. In addition, I found a newspaper listing “Help Wanted” advertising from Interlate Language Systems, Inc. owned by Brad White and managed by Renee Hodstatter, and Jacquie Guiter who assigned Interpreting and Translation during the week from Elgin and Aurora, Kane County, Illinois. In addition, I also worked for Carmen Kenny & Associates, Gloria Domenech & Associates, Burg Translations with Agatha and John, Access Business Translation with Rosa Ridderbusch in Lake Zurich, Illinois. After I moved to Lombard, I began to work with Linguistic Systems in Massachusetts, Inlingua Schools of Languages managed by Joyce, Kelly Killian, Kara, and Public Information Access (PIA), Inc. also known as Interactive Media World Wide on Orleans St. and Chicago Avenue for the TOUCH Network Kiosks sponsored by the State of Illinois Office of Tourism with Lee Seitelman from Oak Park, Larry Goldstick, Patrick Dimperio, Mike, Alison, Larry, Glen Koltz, and other language translators and interpreters like Patty Jacobs who lived in Glendale Heights, Illinois, USA.
The same year in 1994, Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin’s parents, Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin visited the Village of Lombard for the first time and stayed at our Lombard home for two (2) weeks on the first floor. Also, my Aunt Xiomara Fong Ramos de Zayas came from Santiago de Cuba and visited Lombard in 1994 and stayed with my Mother and Brother at their first Lombard home located at 342 West Harrison and Elizabeth Street, near Finley Road and the Lombard Park District in Du Page County, Illinois USA. There was a big Family Reunion at the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow when Nathan’s Parents and My Aunt from Cuba decided to stay for a vacation during Lilac Time 1994 in Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois USA. My Father, Mr. Roberto Hung hosted all the house guests and visitors to breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Lombard, DuPage County, and in the Chicagoland area, during their visit in Illinois, USA. We drove everyone around Lilac Town and the Chicagoland area in Illinois USA.

A Father’s Day Story: A Lombard Resident Homeowner in DuPage County, Illinois USA “What Would My Father Say…If He Were Alive Today in June 2012?” In Memory of Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor If I were alive today, I would be 81 years old, enjoying retirement as a senior citizen and Lombard resident homeowner in District 5, York Township, County of DuPage, Illinois USA. During June 2012, I would have celebrated my 81st birthday anniversary since June 7, 1931, along with my Niece Olivia Hung-Simons (Leaver) and god-daughter who was born on the same date, the first daughter of my eldest brother Miguel Hung and his wife, Silvia Hung-Simons. My second Niece Mireya Hung Lee is also born on June 30th. When I got married in March 1957, my Nieces Olivia and Gertrudis were the flower girls at my wedding to G. Fong Ramos at the Cathedral of Santiago de Cuba in Oriente, Cuba. All my Brothers, Sisters, Nephews, Family Relatives, Friends, Colleagues, and Associates attended the wedding celebrations and were invited to all family events. In retrospect, time passed by… my family relatives became adults and I did not attend the weddings for Olivia and Wayne Leaver, Miguel and Pam Hung, Santiago and Ileana, Guillermo and Millie, Mireya, Ileana, Santiago, Joaquin, Teresita, and/or the other family members. All my Nieces and Nephews remember meeting with me when I visited them during travels to Miami, Hialeah in Florida and Queens, Flushing, Long Island, New York, USA. My Sister-in-Law Silvia Hung-Simons did recall how I used to help her with Olivia who was my god-daughter, Miguelito, the second son, and the other two (2) children, Santiago and Raymundo when she lived at the house in Santiago de Cuba, Oriente, Cuba and I was studying at the University of Oriente. Nineteen (19) years ago, I purchased a second Lombard home at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard upon referral from Baird & Werner Realtor Paulette Weininger who contacted Century 21 Realtor Dino N. Lekousis at the Lombard Pines Shopping Center during August 1993. My wife and son had already purchased the first Lombard home at 342 West Harrison and Elizabeth Street, near Finley Road near the Lombard Park District in DuPage County, Illinois USA. Linda Schuster who lived in Westmont was the girlfriend of Paul Rathe who referred my youngest son and wife to buy a house in Village of Lombard, also known as Lilac Town for the Lilac Parade celebration near Main Street. My youngest son and wife moved to the Village of Lombard in 1992 urged by the insistence of Paul Rathe, a boyfriend who lived on Roscoe St. near Halsted St. in Chicago, Illinois USA. My son’s friends and realtors wanted him to ask me for $10,000 cash in down payment for the Lombard home, coming from my IRA retirement funds and life-savings from working 4-5 jobs during the week and weekends; in addition, I had to provide monthly cash support for my wife and son while they lived in a Lombard home in DuPage County, Illinois USA. One year afterwards, my son and wife insisted that I moved to Lombard with my daughter and son-in-law in order to buy a second home with the remainder of my 401K and IRA retirement savings funds. The Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard was built in 1927 in Lilac Town, District 5, York Township in DuPage County, Illinois USA.This Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow has remained at the corner of Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd. since the Ahrens Family built the Lombard property in 1927. Two centuries later, on September 2nd, 1993, I purchased the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow from Debra Y. Sekrecki, with an initial down payment of $2,000, as earnest money paid by personal check, added to the total cash payment of $88,000 at a fixed interest rate not to exceed 8.00% per year, amortized over a period of fifteen (15) years. At the time, Debra Y. Sekrecki had two (2) children, a boy and a girl, lived with Stella, the tenant upstairs, and father Adam Sekrecki. Three months before, on July 11, 1993, I signed a Standard Residential Sales Contract from the Du Page Association of Realtors in agreement to purchase the Lombard real estate property at 502 S. Westmore Avenue in Lombard, Illinois 60148-3028 , owned by seller Debra Y. Sekrecki. The original closing date was scheduled on September 11, 1993. However, I was called by telephone to appear sooner on September 2nd, 1993, at 3:30 p.m., at the law office of Alan Dakoff, Telephone: 708-966-0488, located at 9291 North Maryland, in Niles, Illinois 60714 , U.S.A. Century 21, Action Real Estate provided a Buyer Service Pledge presented by Steve Block, Telephone: 630-627-5500, and Dino, the real estate agent with Roberto Hung and family, who signed in agreement. Afterwards, I received a copy of Rider 412, Buyer’s Inspection which he signed as buyer with Debra Sekrecki, as seller. In 1993, Century 21, Action Real Estate described in a listing the Highlights of the Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow at the corner of Westmore Avenue and Washington Blvd., owned by Debra Y. Sekrecki with tenant Stella. At the time, the Du Page County Real Estate Taxes were only $2,744 for the brick house. After I purchased the same Lombard Brick House, the Lombard property taxes doubled for more than $4,000, without providing the senior citizens Homestead Exemption. This Lombard Brick Home Parcel Lot is located near Westmore Elementary School and St. Pius X Church School, Jackson Middle School , and Willowbrook High School . George Hornbeck’s Parcel No. 06-09-315038 is a subdivision, spacious 4-bedroom brick home with a second floor in-law or potential income arrangement. There were nine (9) room available with hardwood floors. Full finished basement. Front and rear enclosed porches for added living space. Fully fenced yard with a gas grill. There was a 2-car garage.

This Lombard home parcel lot is close to school and shopping, near the Eastgate Center and State of Illinois facilities for the Secretary of State Vehicle Licenses Center and the Illinois Employment and Training Center (I.E.T.C.). Action Real Estate for Century 21 was serving Du Page and Cook counties at the Lombard Pines Shopping Center, 1125-J South Main Street, Lombard, Illinois 60148, in care of realtor Dino. On September 2nd, 1996, I completed full cash payment of the Lombard Brick Home at Maple Park State Bank, witnessed by my daughter, Gardenia C. Hung, and the bank manager. We improved this Lombard Brick house by adding oak cabinets, an exterior halogen flood night light, (2) automatic garage door openers, changed all door locks, added gardening landscaping, apple trees orchard, and perennial flowers, and exotic plant species.
