Allen J. Balinski

At 63 years of age, Allen J. Balinski passed away on September 23, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. The son of Mary and John Balinski, Dr. Balinski was born on February 19, 1957 in
Detroit, Mich. On June 12, 1987 he married Theresa Rivard in Warren, Mich.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 33 and a half years, Theresa; his treasured children, Amelia,

Michael, and Jason; and five grandchildren, Drew, Noah, Gabriella, Ivy, and Max. He was predeceased by his mother, Mary; father John; and two sisters, Carolyn and Barbara.

Dr. Balinski and his family have been residents of Tecumseh since 2003, moving from St. Clair, Mich. Dr. Balinski was a respected and compassionate physician, serving Lenawee County for over 20 years.

A man of great faith, Dr. Balinski was a parishioner at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, as well as serving in the Knights of Columbus as a Knight of the third degree. More than anything else in the world, Dr. Balinski enjoyed spending time with his family, grilling, and working on improvements to the home. He also spent his spare time woodworking, assisting his wife in her art studio work (activities which frequently crossed over in purpose), as well as an avid sports fan, following the Red Wings and Detroit Tigers. He loved bowling and mini-golfing with his children as well as traveling all across Michigan, especially enjoying trips with his family to Mackinac Island.

  • UAW workers at Kirchhoff Automotive walked off their jobs Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. to protest poor working conditions, along with health and safety issues. Negotiations for a new contract have failed. Several picketers complained Monday of a new work schedule that begins at 4 a.m. for four-day, 10-hour shifts. Picketers also complained about longer hours, insufficient pay and difficulty in finding day care for children at the new starting time. Calls to Kirchhoff for comment Tuesday were not returned.
