Joseph James Colton

Joseph James Colton
May 18, 2005 – May 19, 2010

It is with great sadness that we pass along news of the passing of little Joseph Colton, the son of James and Alexa Colton of Florida. Joseph James Colton, 5 years old, passed away on Wednesday, May 19th due to conditions resulting from Niemann- Pick Disease Type A/B.

Joseph was a happy child from the day he was born until the day he died. His enthusiastic smile brightened the room. Joseph loved to attend his brother’s baseball and football games, watching and rooting for the teams to score.

Joseph enjoyed birthday parties, listening to music while dancing in his chair, hanging out in his community pool, taking morning or evening walks through his neighborhood and stopping to toss acorns into the water from the bridges.

We can all learn from Joseph’s example how to embrace the simple pleasures available to us in each precious day. While his life was far too short, it was a life well-enjoyed and well-lived.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Joseph’s family and friends in their loss.
