Obituary for Tyler Robert Colvin

December 30, 2000 - July 10, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 19


Tyler R. Colvin, 19, died unexpectedly on Friday, July 10, 2020. He was born December 30, 2000 in Belfast, Maine, the son of Skip and Heather (Neslund) Colvin.

He graduated from BASIS Shavano Park charter school, the Class of 2019, where he was a member of the National Honor Society. He was entering his sophomore year at Trinity University, the Class of 2023, as a business major. Tyler joined Alpha Kappa Psi co-ed business fraternity in Fall 2019 and planned to serve as the Risk Management chair. He joined Phi Sigma Pi in Spring 2020 and was slated to serve as the Service Chair. He was active in the Catholic Student Group, and recently joined the polo club as a novice rider who showed enthusiasm and interest in the sport. He was an active member of the Young Conservatives of Texas Chapter.

Tyler practiced his faith and was actively involved at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. He was a teacher's assistant at the Church's Faith Formation Program, where he represented the teen congregation at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Faith Formation building, and volunteered at the Saint Vincent De Paul Food Bank. In 2019 Tyler was the recipient of the Father John Wagner Scholarship for his strong academics and on-going charitable work with the Church. Tyler's friends and family describe him as a warm, caring, intelligent individual who dedicated his time and energy freely to the people and causes he cared about.

Surviving in addition to his parents, Heather and Skip, is his younger brother Matthew. Tyler was a loving brother and Matthew's best friend. Also, are his loving grandparents, Bob and Marlene Neslund, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
