Michael J. Kolin
Michael J. Kolin, of Washburn, formerly of Bolingbrook and Romeoville, passed away suddenly at the age of 63 on Friday, January 11, 2019, at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. Michael was born on June 5, 1955, the son of Michael E. and Anne (nee Smithka) Colen. He attended Kelly High School in Chicago and was a truck driver for over ten years. Michael had a larger than life personality and considered his friends his family. He enjoyed fishing in the Upper Peninsula in his younger years, had a talent for fixing up cars and taking them to car shows, and loved nothing more than riding his Harley.
Michael is survived by his father, Michael E. Colen, and his brothers, Richard (Janet) and Frank Kolin. He is the loving uncle of Richie (Christina), Shawn (Mary), Brittany, Spencer, Chase, Saulo, Jaxson, Charisma, Seneca, Lexi and Kennadi and nephew of Audry Ryan.
