Michael Todd Ungeran

March 12, 1973 ~ December 21, 2018 (age 45)

Michael Todd Ungeran of Downers Grove passed away on December 21, 2018.  He was beloved husband to Marnie, loving father of Jacob 8 and Matthew 7; beloved son of Ruth Ann Ungeran (nee Born) and Robert J. (Diane) Ungeran; brother of Nicole Ungeran.  Born March 12, 1973, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Mike was a life-long Packer fan with a distinctive sense of humor that brought many smiles (and the occasional groan).  Mike grew up in Shorewood, Illinois, graduated from Joliet West High School in 1991, and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Purdue University in 1996. Growing up, Mike played hockey and later went on to coach and referee within the community.  He played baseball in his youth and enjoyed attending White Sox games with friends and family as an adult. In college, Mike joined the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, served as Chief Justice to the University’s Greek Council, and was recognized for his contributions and impact on campus as a Gimlet Leadership Honorary.  Professionally, Mike was a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) with CO, IL, IN, MI, MN and OH.  He was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) where he served on the state board of directors from 2004-2007 and was awarded the “Citizen Engineer of the Year” by the Illinois Section of ASCE in 2008.  Mike’s passions included being outdoors to hunt and fish and living out a love of God and country with political activism.  He found happiness in family traditions like travel and movie nights and loved playing video games side-by-side with his sons, Jake and Matt.  A visitation will be held at The Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge (5901 South County Line Road; Hinsdale, IL 60521) on Sunday, December 30, beginning at 1:00 PM and continuing until the memorial service commences at 5:00 PM.  Memorials appreciated to the Jacob and Matthew Ungeran Scholarship Fund;
