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.

Preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Lucille, Twilla and Margaret. Though Ardee was diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme in 2011, he was determined to make the best use of life's extra days obtained from a couple of surgeries which allowed him and Sandy to see granddaughter Valkyrie wed near San Francisco's Muir Woods, participate in granddaughter Venus' Navy commissioning following graduation from USC, where he was her first salute as an officer, and enjoy a hot air balloon ride over Napa Valley for his 50th wedding anniversary. 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.
