We are sorry for your loss and we hope you find comfort in the days to come. I would like take this opportunity to share my personal story about Caoch Colvin. I felt compelled to send a couple of thoughts because of my late father and the sincere respect he had for Coach Colvin. I believe they shared a Louisiana State Championship in baseball a long time ago.

I personally met Coach Colvin only once, it was several years ago, and I remember thinking how humble of a man he was. It was an honor to visit with him, I had heard about Coach Colvin all of my life. Afterwards, I realized why my dad often spoke so highly of his former coach and teacher.

It's important to understand that many of us are impacted by teachers and coaches and their input is often passed down from generation to generation. Many pass from here and never fully understand the importance of their lessons and direction. This is not the case with your father and husband, Coach Colvin. Interestingly, my son is a baseball player at a university in Mobile. In some indirect way, he has benefited by the lesson's Coach Colvin taught my dad in Dubach, LA. in the 1950's.

Coach Colvin was and still is a difference maker. His legacy and impact does not pass with him. I hope you find comfort in the memories people have shared here.

Respectfully,
G. Sharp

Definitely one of the two best teacher I had at Dubach High. Taught me enough math to get me through certification to teach Chemistry and Physics....loved his classes, his laid back way of dealing with people....
