Don Nordin, age 90, passed away at home in Glenview on February 6th from lung cancer. He was born March 12, 1928. Survivors include his daughters; Robin, Brook (Dwayne) Gordon, and Kimberly. One son; Craig (Carol) and three grandchildren; Meghan Nordin, Ryan Nordin, and Brad Gordon. Don was known at Soldier Field as the "The Sign Guy" for his colorful signs over the past 35 years. He only missed one game during that time. He was thrilled this year when the TV show "Inside The Bears" wanted to feature him and his signs. His other claim to fame was building both of Michael Jordan's homes.

A time of gathering will be held Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 4:00-9:00 p.m. at Colonial-Wojciechowski Funeral Home, 8025 W. Golf Road in Niles. A private burial was held.
