Colon was a devoted family man & dog lover. He enjoyed sitting in the backyard listening to birds & feeding the dogs. He loved going to restaurants & traveling to Ecuador & Rivera Maya, Mexico. He was a man of Catholic faith & well versed in religion. Colon was warm-hearted & calm-natured. He was kind, giving & generous. At times, stubborn & strong-willed like his daughter. We will miss his snacking at night to get coffee & bread in the kitchen. He was extremely patient and waited for hours in the car for his daughter & wife when they went shopping, He was a doting grandfather & enjoyed driving them to school, sports and practice.
He is survived by his loving wife, Martha, daughter Sylvia, son John, grandkids; Celine, Jonathan, Ariela, Aaron, & his dogs Max, Tiffany, & Mr. Odie. Colon’s presence will be missed by his family. However, the family is consoled as he is no longer in pain, resting at peace with god, his parents – Miguel & Maura, his siblings; Luis, Felipe, Miguel, Pedro & Galdis in heaven. He will always remain in our hearts.
