I cherish my memories of being in Troop 19 with Mr. Colvin as our scout master. His great leadership led me to attain the rank of Eagle scout and to have both sons become Eagle scouts. Over the years I have realized how much of a sacrifice of his time he gave to be a scout master. He will truly be missed.

To Jean and Sally: I am so sorry for you loss of this special man/father/husband and humanitiarian. I always loved it when he came out to watch us ride, and whether we had made Progress or not, he gave us encouragement, asked us was it the best we could do, and then "suggested" we move on to the "next level. I wish I could be there in person at the services, but I know there are many many folks that will lift you up while you are sad & hurting. He is in a better place, and I am sure my mom is happy he is there. Just know Leigh Ann & I love you all very much. Sally, next time I get to Stamford, we will do our best to see each oter an meet your family, which I know was special to your dad. In his love, Melanie Buller 3411 Austin St Gainesvlle, TX 76240 PH: 901-356-1811/cell

Though I never met this gentleman, I do know that it takes a great man to raise great children. I appreciate the service given to this great country. It is because of men like these that we can have peace and security in our homes. Cathy and family, May God comfort your hearts throughout this difficult time and give you grace as you face the future.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Joy and I send our love and prayers to you guys. I have many memories of Mr. Colvin when he was our leader in scouts. Going on the many camping, hiking, and working events. Even remember that he always had to make sure he had his first aid kit, as it wasn't if Jack would need it; but when! What a wonderful friend and leader who lead me not only in scouts, but also in church. What a friend that we'll miss, but find peace in knowing that we'll see him again in our Heavenly Home!
