Apr 14 1990 - Oct 06 2006

Colin Ryan Bodensteiner, 16, of Allen passed away in a car accident on Friday, October 6, 2006. He was a junior at Bishop Lynch Catholic High School. Colin had a passion for sports, especially baseball. He was always ready to play ball. Most of all, he loved his family and friends. To those who knew him, he was a gentleman with high-spirit, great sense of humor, feistiness, a bright smile and great potential. To his family, he was the oldest son, star, and big brother, as well as the holder of their dreams of the future. In addition, he was a wonderful and loving grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. Colin is survived by his parents, Tom and Meg Bodensteiner, and his brothers Brady and Drew, along with his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a multitude of friends. Absent in body, his spirit lives on and one day we will join him again. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2006 from 6–8pm with a rosary at 7:00pm. The funeral mass will be celebrated by priests from St. Mark’s and Bishop Lynch on Wednesday at 11:00am. Both services will be held at St. Mark’s Catholic Church (1201 Alma Road, Plano). Colin will be laid to rest at Ridgeview Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to Bishop Lynch Catholic High School (9750 Ferguson Road, Dallas, 75228) with the notation of the Colin Bodensteiner Student Fund. The fund will assist students with financial needs.
