I was sadden to hear of Mr. Jimmy's passing. I have known him and Nan for years. He was such a nice man, easy to talk to. I always felt welcomed in their home, Julie, I, and some friends used to go over to their house on the 4th of July. He would always do the grilling while we sat at the pool, My kids loved going over there to play with his grandkids. My heart and prayers are with his wife, Julie, Kaye, Robbie and the rest of the family.

My deepest sympathy to all of the Colvin family. Jimmy always had a smile on his face. I was at Lincoln General for many years and had the pleasure of being there when he was. May happy memories of him and the love he had for family be with you always. - Sue Campbell

So sorry for your loss. One of the highlights of coming home was going out to eat with the parents Friday night group. And spending time with Jimmy and Nan made it extra special. You are all in my thoughts and prayers

My deepest sympathies to all of you. Mr. Colvin was our bus driver and we all loved him. He was so nice. I worked at Lincoln General later on and saw him there at his job in Maintenance. He was such a fine person - always friendly and had a smile for everyone. I thought the world of him.
