Colin Dean “Coco” Shine, 61, of Tiona, Pa., died on Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2021, at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minn.
He was on a hunting trip with a good friend when he was stricken with Covid-19. He fought a hard and lengthy battle.
Colin was born Aug. 4, 1960, in Warren, Pa., the son of the late Eugene and Shirley Patten Shine.
A lifelong area resident, he was a 1978 graduate of the Warren Area High School. He was currently employed with PennDOT as an operator for the past 26 years.
Coco loved to hunt, ride motorcycles, and enjoyed music. His greatest love was his two sons, his family, and his grandchildren. He was really looking forward to retirement and being an active grandfather. He had a gift of making friends wherever he went, and he was always there to lend a hand to his many friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
