A Romeoville man was among those Rep. Dan Lipinski recognized as a "Senior of the Year" for his service and volunteer work to his community.

Jerry Capps was recognized by Lipinski for his involvement and service.

He is involved in the Romeoville Area Historical Society, the Downtown Redevelopment Commission and last year retired from a long run of coaching basketball at the village recreation center for high school students, according to a news release.

Capps is also the vice president of the Romeoville Food Pantry, the past president of Friends of the Library and the secretary of the Mosquito Abatement program.

"Jerry has been involved in Romeoville for a long time," Romeoville Mayor John Noak said.

Lipinski receives nominations for his "Senior of the Year" awards. The awards recognize senior citizens who are engaged in volunteerism and service within their communities. A senior must be nominated by the leader of an organization or a community official.
