John Douglas Colvin

October 12, 1962 — August 5, 2016

John Douglas Colvin, 53 of Bainbridge, GA passed away on Friday, August 5, 2016 in Tallahassee.

John "The Boat Man" Colvin loved fishing and boating on the Chattahoochee River with friends. He also enjoyed "Jam Sessions" with all of his buddies. He always had a way of brightening people’s day with his sense of humor and kind heart. John had a knack for fixing things, everything from a boat engine to a broken heart. John’s greatest joy was his family, and he will be remembered as a loving and caring father, grandfather, and brother.

John was born on October 12, 1962 in Tallahassee, to the late J.T. Colvin and late Evelyn Draper Colvin. He is preceded in death by his wife Carrie Roxanne Colvin. He is survived by his daughter Jessica (Marc) Lee, Amy (Eric) Hicks, and Christy Colvin; his six grandchildren Shiania Lee Zach Lee, Hanna Lee, Emily Lee, Thomas Lee, and Noah Lee; two brothers and five sisters.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at First Baptist Church in Havana with Dr. Eric Erskine officiating the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Big Bend Hospice, 1723 Mahan Center Blvd, Tallahassee, FL 32308.
