Authorities state that David Andrus was the instigator in a tragic family murder-suicide on June 11, 2013. Dead are Mr. Andrus, his wife Jeana and their daughters, Jennifer and Jessica.
As relatives were completing funeral arrangements Thursday, the father of Jeana Andrus said his son-in-law will be laid to rest next week alongside his wife and two children.
"All together," said John Infanti. "That's the way my daughter would have wanted it, and that's the way I want it... Something happened to make him snap and... a lifetime disappears. But he's not that person. They're still a family and they'll be together."
David Andrus is described as a hardworking person who, along with Jeana, was dedicated to daughters Jessica, 22, and Jennifer, 16. However, he was fired from a Willowbrook battery management products company the morning of the murder-suicide, the company said. Andrus, 50, was terminated for "cause" but officials refrained from releasing details.
"Something must have snapped in him for this to occur," a friend of the family's was quoted as saying. "It's important that people know that what happened - this wasn't David. This was not the man we know."
Visitation is scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Gerharz-Cappetta Funeral Home, 501 State St., Lemont. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 305 Lemont St., Lemont.
