Humbert, Arden L. "Ardee" Age 73. Passed away at home on Sunday, October 21, 2012 with his beloved family by his side. Son of Frank and Agnes (Petersen) Humbert, Ardee was born May 7, 1939.

Retired from Mobil Oil Joliet Refinery in 1995 after 24 years of service. Upon retirement, Ardee was responsible for the formation of the XOM Retiree Club of Joliet, now over 200 members strong.
