CHICAGO – A Chicago man who died in a massive pileup on Interstate 94 in northwestern Indiana was on his way to check on his retirement home with his dog.
Sixty-five-year-old Jerry Dalrymple died along with his Black Labrador Retriever, Sparky. His sister, Deanna Dalymple, said he was a year or so away from retiring to a lake home in La Porte. She said he was headed there to check the property Thursday when he was killed in the crash.
Dalrymple was a married father of four grown children. He was a former music teacher and played the organ at his church.
He was one of three who were involved in the pileup in near whiteout conditions.
Thomas Wolma, 67, and his wife Marilyn, 65, of Grand Rapids, Michigan also lost their lives.
