Long before I was born, my father, Bill Raspolich, developed a great appreciation for carpentry and remodeling, which he acquired from his father. He had enjoyed it so much that in 1986, at 24 years old, he opened his own company named Raspolich Service Company. As a result of living in Joliet his whole life, my dad gained most of his customers through word of mouth, friends, and acquaintances. With his friendly personality and excellent carpentry skills, he created a small yet substantial business.
While there has been many ups and downs for my father over the past 30 years, he has been very successful in his decision to start his own company. Because of my father’s hard work and dedication, he was able to raise a family and provide my two siblings and I with a Catholic education. I can remember various times as a child, going with my dad to work at his shop and loving every minute of it. I will always love the smell of paint and saw dust, as it reminds me of the time and devotion my dad put into his work.
Thirty years after opening, my dad consistently books new jobs with people he meets in the Joliet area with his business, which is now called W.E. Raspolich Contruction. I admire his hard work, and even after this many years he continues to thrive. When I see my dad talking about business, I can feel his admiration and respect for what he does. He took something that he loved and created a business out of it.
