CHICAGO (CBS) — A construction accident took the life of Jack Eiler, who many knew as a singer of classics from Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to Elvis Presley.
The Lake County coroner said Eiler suffered multiple traumatic injuries after being struck by a piece of paving equipment on Wednesday.
Eiler was a mechanic by trade working for Chicagoland Paving Contractors, 225 Tesler Rd., but his love was performing. He was especially known for singing classic hits.
Eiler was 58-years-old and was pronounced dead at the scene.
