Donald Colbert

October 3, 1943 — October 30, 2017

Don Colbert entered fully into the presence of his Lord and Savior on October 30. He died of natural causes with family by his side. He may be gone, but his infectious smile and kind heart will forever be remembered. Donald Ray Colbert was born October 3, 1943 in Sparta, Illinois. He was the third of five children born to Edgar and Marie Colbert. Don grew up in Butte after the family moved there when he was six years old. He moved with his parents and two younger siblings to Dillon in 1961. Don worked at Robert’s Food before he was recruited by the State Bank & Trust in 1970. He advanced quickly and would oversee the bank operations until his retirement in 2005. Don was an avid bowler and golfer, and he excelled at both. He loved the challenge of duplicate bridge. From May to September you would find Don at Bannack State Park where he served as a volunteer. Don also enjoyed spending time with family. Uncle Don could be counted on to play cards, outdoor games, shop, go to movies or just hang out by his many nieces and nephews. Above all, Don’s faith was of utmost importance to him. He recognized Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and lived out his faith daily. Don was preceded in death by his parents, his stepfather Stan Abbott, sister-in-law Lillian, and a niece Katherine. Don is survived by brothers, Phil (Jann) of Helena, Dave (Nancy) of Eureka, and Mike (Judy) of Townsend; sister Leota (John) Fred of Bozeman; and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, November 3 at 2 p.m. at the St. Rose Parish, 226 S. Atlantic St., Dillon, Montana. Memorials may be sent to St. Rose Parish.
