Obituary of Michael Alan Moon II
Michael Alan Moon, II
Michael Alan Moon, II, passed away unexpectedly and too soon, on Sunday, October 9, 2022, at the age of 39. Michael was born in Joliet on June 9, 1983, the son of Michael Alan Moon and Jody Law.
Michael spent his impressionable years in Georgia before returning to the Joliet area to be near his family and to be a full time father. His life changed with the birth of his son, Cruz. It was at this time that he became a better man, an amazing father, and the best version of a son, brother, and uncle that a family could ask for. He was the life of the party, a well known prankster, and had an overwhelming personality with an infectious smile and laugh. Fall was his favorite time of the year because it meant horror movies and his favorite holiday, Halloween. If he wasn’t enjoying a cold beverage or some Apple Crown at a concert with friends, he was out on his Harley. There will be a void left in the hearts of all who loved him. Michael will be forever missed.
Michael is survived by his son, Cruz Moon; parents, Michael and Belinda Moon; mother, Jody Law; his brother, Matthew (fiancé Aurelia Hernandez) McKanna; two sisters, Heather Schiller, Ashley (Juan) Ruiz; his girlfriend and love of his life, Alexandria Striegel; nieces and nephews, Annaliese Bluth, Kason Bluth, Javier Ruiz, Elias Ruiz, Emilio Ruiz, Ava McKanna, and Mia McKanna; the mother of his son, Angie Gillis; maternal grandparents; Dorothy (Don) Warren and Jim (Linda) Law; and his feline companion, “Smokey”. Several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends also survive.
He is preceded by his paternal grandparents, Charles E. Moon and Rose Marie Kolakowski; his aunt Donna Brown; and his cousin, Jordan Korn.
