Biography Reginald Degge Mars
Reginald D Mars was my father. He was born and raised in Peoria, Illinois. He married my mother, Eleanor in 1944. They lived in Milwaukee, and moved to Oak Park, Illinois shortly after I was born. We moved to River Forest, Illinois in 1951.
He did not live in Des Plaines, although he painted there frequently.
He was the president of the Oak Park River Forest Art League (now Oak Park Art League). My mother worked at Oak Park River Forest High School, and many of the faculty members bought Dad's paintings.
