Every year, the individuals of the North Shore Senior Center (NSSC) present three awards in honor of the center’s first executive director, Janet Burgoon. The awards are presented to individuals who encompass Ms. Burgoon’s passion and dedication to serving Northbrook’s elders, promoting their independence and respect, and enhancing their time spent in the community. This year, the center has chosen to bestow their “Dedicated Corporation” award to the team here at Peck Ritchey, LLC.
Our firm is a longtime sponsor and friend of the folks at North Shore Senior Center, and we are humbled that they chose to present us with this distinguished award.

86-year-old Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs died following his battle with dementia, which lasted four years.
According to wife Melody Sachs, Sachs suffered from vascular dementia. He was first diagnosed in 2012 and spent eight months in a nursing home facility. After suffering from intense pneumonia, Sachs lost his capacity to speak, a common characteristic of people suffering from the disease. Mrs. Sachs said she had the best life with her husband and no one should feel sorry for her loss. Despite his long battle with dementia, Sachs remained positive until the end of his life. Friends of Sachs in the film industry describe him as a hilarious and extraordinary person. He started his acting career on BBC radio and later captured our hearts when he played Manuel in John Cleese’s comedy series Fawlty Towers.
We at Peck Ritchey, LLC expresses our sincerest condolences to the family of Andrew Sachs. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
