Dean Collis Obituary
Dean A. Collis, 58, of Glen Ellyn, passed away on Nov. 3, 2017. Beloved husband of Elizabeth "Betsy" nee: Berg; loving father of Lauren (Michael) Genin and Kathryn "Katy" Collis; dear son of Andrew L. and the late Katherine Collis; fond brother of Georgia (John) Roros, Louis, Frank, Byron and Patrice Collis; uncle of Constantine and Christina Roros. Dean was a lifelong resident of Illinois sans a stint at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he would obtain an engineering degree and more importantly meet his future wife. For most of his adult life you could usually find Dean engaged in one of his three passions: his family, engineering and of course running. As an avid runner, Dean ran in over 30 marathons, training religiously for months on end. Several involved him leading and teaching others the sport he so loved. He was an engineer at heart. As an employee of Borg Warner, Dean rose to a role of leadership, mentoring the next generation of engineers. Dean adored his family. He loved being a family man raising two wonderful daughters, recently giving his eldest away at her wedding. He was a cherished friend always willing to lend a hand. Family and friends will meet on Thursday for visitation from 11:00AM at Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church, 2501 S. Wolf Rd., Westchester 60154, until time of service at 11:30AM. A private interment will immediately follow for family. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the appreciated. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Chris J. Balodimas, Funeral Director.
