Colby James Holden passed away on Saturday, July 6, 2013 at the age of 22. He was born on August 25, 1990 to Stephanie and Tim Holden. Colby was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He graduated from Fremont High School in 2009 and then attended school at the Ogden Applied Technology College where he studied welding and diesel mechanics.
Colby, know that you are so dearly loved by all that knew you! You are the choicest spirit of a kind Heavenly Father that just for a short time honored us with having you in our lives.
He was born with strengths very few people have. He was so very kind and loved unconditionally. If he loved you, you knew it! He would loyally fight to the death for who he loved and what he believed in. He had a pure heart of gold and always recognized and hurt for people less fortunate than him. There was not a time he would not stop to give his last dollar to someone in need of help.
Colby brightened every room he walked into with an infectious giggle and the love of being a practical joker. He was a true animal lover, I think he owned every animal alive but finally found his true companion and best friend in his dog, Diesel.
I love you son, my heart aches with an incurable brokenness that will never heal until we meet again. Thank you for being my son and for daily kindness and concern you always had for me. I know you loved me and words will never express my deep love for you. I promise you son, I will be with you again and what a sweet reunion it will be! Until we meet again know how deeply you're loved and missed, you will ALWAYS be with me!
Colby is survived by his mother and stepfather, Stephanie and Justin Nielsen; sisters, Chelsey Holden, Macoy Nielsen, Maguire Nielsen, and Makaylee and Brady Beal; father and stepmother, Tim and Janell Holden; sisters, Hallee Holden and Laynee Holden; grandparents, Roger and Judy Stokes, grandparents Mike and Shelly Adams and Tim and Amelia Holden; along with many aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his favorite cousin and best friend, Josh Roberts; and nephew, Stetzon Stokes.
