ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, David Colbert 53 years old , born on June 4, 1965 and passed away on February 8, 2019. We will remember him forever.

David was a strong man who battled lung cancer that had spread into his bones, brain and lymph nodes. 

David was preceded in death by his parents Earl and Patricia Daniels and Father in Law Thomas W. Steed. He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Kerri Steed-Colbert. His brother and sister in law Douglas and Janey Colbert, brother Michael Colbert, and sister Catherine Daniels, as well as his Brothers in Law Thomas (Tina) Steed, Chris Steed, Paul (Roni) Steed, Sister in Law Dawn Steed and Mother in Law Sharon Steed. 

David was also survived by his son Dustin Jones, Nephews: Jonathan (Samantha) Steed, Jason Steed, Jacob (Amber) Steed. Niece Tabatha Steed. As well as Great-Nephews Brandon and Hunter Allman, Brayden Steed, Parker and Timothy Steed and Great-Niece Brianna Steed.

Nephews Matthew (Amy) Colbert, Chad Colbert, Kayla (Andrew) Weitzel, Great-Nephews Brady and Isaiah, Great-Nieces Emma, Eleanor and Gabriella. 

He was a wonderful Son, Husband, Brother, Uncle, Friend. Always willing to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. David donated his remains to the Ohio State University Anatomical Division in hopes that the medical students there will learn more about cancer and possibly find a cure one day. Ohio State will return his ashes at which time we will have a celebration of life.

I miss you more and more everyday. I see things that you would love, Easter is coming and you'd have me out getting peeps and making pickled eggs for you. I just don't know what to do without you some days. I love you

Transformers

Shared by Leah Oplinger on March 4, 2019

I met Dave through my dad, (Michael Oplinger,) they grew up together and had reconnected when they found out they lived just a few houses away from each other. Over the years I learned that Dave was a huge fan of The Transformers, well so am I!! He had a bunch of cool transformer collectors memorabilia that he let me see. It was awesome and you could tell it was something he loved to talk about with others who enjoyed it. He’s such a sweet soul and I’m so glad I had the privilege of meeting and knowing him!
