 Joseph Bernard “Joe” Thiede
Marvin E. Lang Jr. obituary, 1936-2017, Woodstock, IL
 From 1991 to 2010, Bob and the "12 Apostles" took maintained "Dream Field" in Emrison Park after rebuilding it.  His love for baseball -- he was an ardent White Sox fan -- made him the ideal VFW representative when the Little League was organized in 1954. Joe then became the leader when the VFW established a ream for 13- and 14-year-olds and the National VFW's Teener League program.
