END OF WATCH: MAY 19, 2020

Colin Ethan Newton, age 23, passed away unexpectedly on May 19, in Allendale, Michigan. Colin was born in Covington, Kentucky on May 22, 1996 and moved with his parents to Michigan in 2003.

Colin was a happy go lucky kid who loved to make people laugh. After graduation from Allendale High School in 2014, Colin enlisted in the US Army Reserves serving with the Wheeled Mechanic Division in Walker, Michigan for four years. Upon completion of his service he transitioned into active duty status serving at Fort Lee Virginia, next with the 8th Army in Yongsan, South Korea and finally at Fort Riley Kansas. He spoke frequently of his military family and valued the relationship they shared. Colin will be cherished and loved by those he left behind.

I will never forget the day this kid walked into my Office and said he wanted to join the Infantry. He was beyond motivated and certainly was not going to back down from a challenge. I am very proud to have met him. See you on the other side kiddo. Very sad to have lost you so soon.
