June 6, 1984 - January 30, 2000



Colby was involved in a car accident on January 29, 2000 and he died the next day. I read once that if you believe in accidents, than you don't believe in God. I believe that God has a plan for all of us. Colby finished God's plan earlier than most, so he was called home. Now we must follow God's plan for us so we can be called home to be with God and Colby.

It is the memories of Colby that bring peace to our family. Colby had a great appreciation for nature, and we went on many hikes, treks, climbs, and trails together. These are a few of our favorite "Colby" pictures and memories.

Dad and Colby -1996, sledding at Sibley Park in Mankato, MN. Here Colby and Dad watch as someone sails down the hill.



This picture is a favorite because of the way the sun shines all around Colby.

Boundary Water Canoe Area, MN - Colby in his favorite hat, shoes and shorts!

Colby also loved throwing rocks and this creek was perfect "skippin" grounds.


Colby at Keckabeka Falls, Canada and as a Royal Fur Trader in Grand Portage, MN.
These two pictures show that Colby was a very happy person, and not afraid of being himself or looking pretty funny.

Colby on Matanushka Glacier, Alaska. August of 1999, we spent a week in Alaska. We drove all over and saw many moose, bald eagles, caribou, grizzly bears, mountains and LOTS of glaciers. This picture really doesn't do justice to the beautiful scenery and Colby's awesome smile.

Colby and the Alaskan Pipeline.


Colby was an awesome person, and everyone who had the privilege of meeting him was blessed by his smile.

I could go on for days about how smart, funny, silly, and special he was. I miss him so much.

Colby gave really great hugs and I am very proud to have him as my step-son.

This site is for you Colby, to show the world how much we all love you and to show you how much we miss you.
