AA "Fizz" Wills

Fizz Wills was my maternal grandfather. I would very much appreciate any information anyone might have about him.
Thank you so much,

Fizz Wills

Linda,

While I didn't know Fizz personally, I did meet him several times, and saw him coach.

For more information, you might check a group on Facebook called "You know you're from Joliet if..." - several people there with a wide range of experience and knowledge of the area...

Also, sportswriter Dick Goss @ the Jolliet Herald News should have some info...

Thanks!
