Collin Ream

January 6, 2006 — February 4, 2023

Collin Alexander Lynn Ream, 17, of Columbia City, Indiana, passed away Saturday, February 4, 2023 at home. Born January 6, 2006 at Parkview Whitley Hospital in Columbia City, he was the son of Rob Ream and Amanda (Kimbrell) Mulkey.

Growing up in Whitley County, Collin had been involved with wrestling, soccer, had been a basketball manager, and was currently a Sophomore at Columbia City High School. He loved being outdoors, swimming, hiking, and going to Bear Lake Summer Camp. With the relationships that had formed with the camp, Collin showed interest of becoming a camp counselor at Bear Lake. Collin was a hard worker and had worked in the summer at Paige's Crossing and for the past year at McDonalds.

Generous, kind, compassionate, and empathetic were just a few ways to describe Collin’s personality. He was creative, either by creating something out of nothing, taking photos and editing them to look beyond professional, or creating YouTube videos. Collin was there for someone in need, helped others out, and was a buddy for those with special needs.

Collin is survived by a loving family, including his father, Rob (Lori) Ream; mother, Amanda (Josh) Mulkey; sister, Madison Ream; brother, Blake Ream; niece, Delilah; step-siblings, Porter Mulkey, Kaiden Mulkey, Jaxon Snover and Colton Snover; grandparents, Gary Kimbrell, Mark and Dixie Barkley, Teresa and Brian Roemke, Russ Richey, Michelle Richey and Cricket Griswold; great-grandma, Geraldine “Geri” Akom; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Vicky Kimbrell, Robin Ream and Denny Mills; great-aunt, Joan Secrist; and great-uncle, Butch Temple.
