Kevin M. Quinlan

Kevin M. Quinlan, 54, of Oak Brook died Sept. 7, 2021.

A one-time resident of Ireland while working as a marketing executive with Coca-Cola, Kevin was especially appreciative of his time there, where he helped launch Fanta, welcomed his first-born child and maintained a strong Irish heritage. After finally settling in Oak Brook and bringing his daughter into the world, Kevin became a devoted civil servant and was very proud of his tenure as Village President from 2003-07. He continued advocating for civil duties of citizens across the village until his passing.

He is survived by his wife, Michelle L. Quinlan, née Diedenhofen; his children, Shane (Melanie) and Kayla M. Quinlan; his father, Michael R .; his brother, Michael (Lee Lamers) Quinlan; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Marilyn C. Quinlan, née DeLashmutt.

A private family service was held Sept. 15 at Sullivan Funeral Home in Hinsdale.
