“Ballpark Girls” Education Fund

“He had our back always”

Now it’s our opportunity to show our love and appreciation for him;  Colin - amazing dad, loyal husband, and BEST friend to Kristin,  incredible brother, dedicated son, dear uncle and cherished friend - by giving for the bright future of his beloved Ballpark Girls Shealy (15) and Cammie (11). 

Though they are heartbroken, confused and incredibly sad now, they will certainly carry Colin’s beautiful, strong spirit forward and make Kristin and all who are fortunate enough to encounter them extremely proud. 

Colin passed away July 29th, just one week after his 50th birthday - far too soon and far too quickly - due to complications with colon cancer. Though the WHY of his passing is not easy to comprehend, the WHY of while he was here is easy. We are grateful for all we gained from Colin’s gifts to us: his infectious laugh, generous compliments, wicked wisdom and quick humor. He was truly someone  everyone wanted to hang out with.  Thank you Colin! And thank you in advance to all who give in celebration of his life. 

All gifts will go to Shealy’s and Cammie’s college funds .

The family is having a private gathering next week but will celebrate Colin’s life with friends later this fall. Details to come.
