1987 - 2009
Sears "Let's Clean" Canister Vacuum (Sucky) was purchased in Vernon Hills, Illinois on October 27, 1987 and failed to start at its home in Lindenhurst, Illinois on October 5, 2009.
Sucky faithfully served its owners several times per week and was principal in the removal of dust, crumbs, fireplace ashes, pet hair, cat litter and spiders from the home. It received the "Merit of Valor" decoration during service in the Great Ant Invasion of 1993 and honorable mention during the Bathroom Wall Resurfacing Campaign of 2008.
It was excellent for use on hardwood floor and laminate surfaces, but ineffective on carpeted areas.
Sucky is survived by owners Rob and Jan, adopted brother Bissell Powerforce Upright Vacuum, and numerous other Sears "Let's Clean" devices.
Services will be held at the Lindenhurst home on October 7, 2009 with burial following in the trash can on the west side of the house.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to The Carpet and Rug Institute, Dalton, Georgia.
On-line condolences can be posted on this website.
