It is with sad, but loving memories and with the help of the good Lord that I try to write this obituary of our loving
son, brother, stepbrother and uncle, John Steven Colley (known to his friends as Stevie). Stevie was born on
August 21, 1961. He entered into rest on May 27, 1995, making his stay here on earth 33 years. Stevie was born
to Lamar Colley and Mary Hylton. He was a coal truck driver for years. He attended Haysi High School. His love
for trucks and motorcycles was his hobbies, sometimes he would work all night on his truck. He rode motorcycles
in racing, winning trophies that were his alone. Stevie enjoyed life to its fullest. Stevie’s stepmother, Phyllis Bush
Colley, loves Stevie and watched him grow into a fine young man.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, one uncle, and three aunts. Those that were left behind to
grieve their loss are his father, Lamar Colley, and his mother, Mary Hylton; his stepmother, Phyllis Colley; brothers,
Marlow and Billy; sister, Brenda; one son, Jerry Steven; one daughter, Amanda Colley; one sister-in-law, Sally
Colley; and many friends that today still grieves his loss. Stevie, you are missed each and every day by your nine
nieces and nephews, Fitzahus, Trevor, Sarah, Matthew, April, Jonathan, Nora Rose, Henry, Lucy; and Suzanne
Sands, and Denise Dixon Sands who never got a chance to know you, but each day around the home place you
are talked about and missed. Stevie, I pray that you have found peace and love in the arms of Jesus. Our loss
was the Lord’s gain. Sleep on, brother, until we meet again. Missed by family and friends of John Steven Colley.
