Obituary for Donald “Donnie” C. Jolin II

Donald “Donnie” C. Jolin II
Saginaw, Michigan

Loving father, son, brother, uncle, and friend passed away on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 surrounded by his family in Saginaw, Michigan after a courageous battle with cancer. Age 53 years. The son of Donald and Betty Ann (Bourdow) Jolin. Donald was born on January 18, 1970 in Saginaw, Michigan. Donnie was the life of the party, always looking for an opportunity to spend time with friends and family, wear his famous Hawaiian shirts and demonstrate his skills as a professional air guitarist and drummer. He enjoyed watching Red Wings Hockey, American Pickers, Pawn Stars, and any News Channel, especially CNN. He spent many years as a maintenance worker, with his last years being spent at Menards; he could not wait to return to work and see his friends. Donnie’s personality attracted everyone to him and left a mark on anyone who met him. Donnie never missed the chance to help those in need. When the opportunity arose, he would stop what he was doing to help. He loved spending time and making memories with his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. You would never know when you were going to get a knock at the door with Donnie, standing there, ready to reminisce.

Surviving are his three daughters, Meagan, Chelsea, Allyssa and their mother Shawn; his parents, Donald and Betty Ann Jolin; three sisters, Jamie (Willy) Bardin, Jenny (Tim) Langschwager, Kelly (Nick) Zimmerman; grandchildren, Laiken and William; many nieces and nephews, cousins, and special friends.

Friends may visit at the funeral home where the family will be present on Saturday from 2:00 p.m. until the time of service. In lieu of flowers, those planning expressions of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to the wishes of the family.
