We are researching the complete list of mayors that Rockford has had. Surprisingly this has been challenging. Any help would be appreciated. Here is picture of the 1963 Mayor Harold Schleif and the city council. L-R: Albert Heinz, Reuben Finke, Gerald Larkowski, Al Frost and Harold Schleif.
Gerald Larkowski is my father.
He currently lives in Springfield Missouri
Oh gosh….I remember Rockford back in the 60’s as a child…. I remember when the Crow River would flood… my father was always helping with the sandbagging and whatever else was needed. I also faintly recall watching the river rise off of the old bridge
For me… Anytime I watch Andy Griffith reruns….Mayberry was definitely Rockford back in the 60’s lol.
