Charles Dorian Colbert, 79, of Troy, Missouri, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at his residence. He was born on August 3, 1939 in Olney, Missouri and the son of the late Efton and Viola May (Collins) Colbert. He was united in marriage to Nancy Melton on September 3, 1997 in Troy, Missouri.
Charles graduated from Buchanan High in 1957 and served his country in the United States Army from 1957 until he was honorably discharged in 1958. He owned and operated Lincoln Auto Body in Troy from 1966 until he sold the shop in 1987. After selling the auto body shop he then farmed for himself for over 12 years. Charles was always tinkering on a project, working on vehicles or mowing the grass. He enjoyed watching Judge Judy or RFD T.V.
