Leo Harold Colburn, Jr., age 79 of Middleville, passed away on October 5, 2020. Leo was born on November 1, 1940 in Hastings to Leo and Lorella (Sneden) Colburn, Sr. Leo was an iron worker for most of his life working on many interesting jobs, in Florida at the Epcot Center at Disney World, the Gurnee Mills Mall in Illinois, the Steelcase plant on M-37, Buildings at UpJohn’s in Kalamazoo, some of the tall buildings in downtown Grand Rapids and many more. He had a small sawmill, did custom sawing and sawed all the lumber for the house he built. Leo loved working with wood and could build almost anything. In the winter you could find him in his wood shop turning wood bowls on his lathe or carving. He was a very talented guy. He anxiously waited for spring each year to get on his motorcycle. He took some good trips with his friend, Jim. Leo is survived by his wife, Pat (Porritt) Colburn; son, Rick (Tina) Colburn; daughter Deborah (Dale) Evans; step son: Phillip Hoffman; seven grandchildren; four great grandchildren; and brothers: Ed (Sara) Colburn and Ken (Bonnie) Colburn. Per Leo’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be planned for a later date. Please visit to share a memory or to leave a condolence message for Leo’s family.

So sorry to hear of Leo's passing Patty . We have known you two for years of living on Morse Lake Avenue and renting from your Dad in the 1960s. Leo taught me how to carve, and he sure was an expert. Sympathies to you and your family

Dear Pat and the Colburn family,
I am so sad to hear of junior's passing. Just yesterday at the Gaines Two office while dropping off our vote I showed the cane he made for me of the 50 quarters and the Lincoln dollar coin to a person at the Twp office.. He said he remembered Leo and I said he should go out to see his carvings. As always we always put off things until too late. I was trying to get out to see him again myself but I can't drive now, (vision problems and leg, hip problems). Anyway Leo was a remarkable person, so talented, so likable, I told everyone about his talents,
his accomplishments. I have so many photos of his carvings that I showed to everyone. Our early morning visits at McDonalds on Wednesday are filled with so many memories as was my visits out to see him at his shop and the sawmill. Our area truly lost a very nice guy. I have looked for a picture of the Indian Chief and Squaw that he carved but it must be on my camera so I will send another picture.
