Larry Eugene Colvin Jr. (7/23/60 – 9/02/18) Passed away at the age of 58 at Mercy Hospital. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle.
He is survived by his wife Christine, daughter Brittney (Shane) and grandchildren Gage and Scarlett, daughter Sydney (Devon) and grandson Logan, step-son Zack and granddaughter Sophia, step-daughter Caila and granddaughter Natalie, one sister Lisa, 3 brothers Craig, Chad, Adam and numerous nieces and nephews, friends and colleagues.
He is preceded in death by daughter, Alexa Rose and parents Joyce and Larry Colvin Sr.
Larry was retired from his career as a licensed electrical contractor in St. Louis County and sole-proprietor of Colvin Electric Co.
Larry was always a most generous and giving person. Whether it be a hand out, or a hand up he was always there and willing to help in any way he could.
Larry loved the feel of the open road before him as he rode his motorcycle. Whether it be in Hawaii, Vegas, Milwaukee , the Great River Road in Grafton, a cruise to the wineries or just the back roads of Missouri and always with his “back warmer and best friend”.
Larry was an avid sportsman who loved to hunt and preferred the challenge of bow hunting over the use of a gun. He especially LOVED to fish…put that man in a boat on a lake with a rod and reel in his hand and he was one happy guy!
But for all his outdoorsmanship….I believe, above all else, what he loved most was…his YARD! And four months ago, he got a new yard and challenge, spending the next 4 months turning a barren waste into beautiful surroundings…with all 47 solar lights shining at night!
He is dearly loved and will be deeply missed by all that knew him.
To my best friend ever…I say…thanks for the ride!! And I WILL see you again someday…your loving wife…Christine
