Michael J. Schimming, 58, of McHenry, IL, passed away on Thursday, August 13th, at Advocate Condell Hospital, Libertyville, Ill. after an accident at home. Mike was the husband of Linda, with whom he shared 34 years of marriage.

Mike was born on June 26th, 1957 in Decorah, Iowa, to John G. and Phyllis M. Schimming. After graduating from Harmony High School in Harmony, Minnesota, Mike served four years in the US Navy. He went on to wed Linda Bollweg, and together they raised three children while Mike was operating a welding & machine Shop in Canton, Minnesota with his dad.. After several years at the welding shop, he went back to school in Hutchinson, MN and worked in the field of Non Destructive Ultrasonic Testing Inspection for about 10 years. At the time of his death he was employed at McLean Fogg Component Solutions in Mundelein, IL.

Mike was a wonderful, loving, devoted husband, an exceptional, loving dad to his three children, an outstanding brother & a caring son. Mike loved spending time with his family & friends, working in the garden, making homemade beer, grilling year round and making people smile with his goofy sense of humor.

Mike was an unselfish person with a generous, giving heart. From the time he served in the United States Navy to his everyday life, he was always ready & willing to help others.



Mike is survived by his wife, Linda, son Mark, daughters Emily and Allison, brothers John (Dena) and Norman (Barb), mother Phyllis and numerous nieces and nephews.



He was preceded in death by his father, John G. Schimming of Canton, Mn.
