Ellsworth -- Wilder Allen Colson, 15, born and raised in Ellsworth and a bright thread in the fabric of his community, passed suddenly and unexpectedly March 5, 2019 on his way to a greater adventure.
As deeply saddened as his family is, they are also amazed at the many lives touched by one so young. Wilder’s life was a celebration of all thing ‘boy’; his bright energy and generous soul touched so many in ways that will never be forgotten.
Wilder’s family includes parents, David and Jody Colson; sisters, Eryn and Skylar Colson of Ellsworth; grandparents, Ernest and Linda Colson of Orrington, Mary Haynes of Ellsworth and Mark Allen Tripp of Lamoine; aunt, Holly Tripp of South China; uncles, Danny Colson and Dennis and Rachael Colson of Orrington; many cousins; extended family members as well as friends and customers who will remember him from Mike’s Country Store and McDonald’s. He was predeceased by his Zadie -- Eddie Povich of Ellsworth.
Visiting hours for the community will be held at the Ellsworth Unitarian Universalist Church, 121 Bucksport Road, Ellsworth March 15, 2019 from 5:30 PM-7:30PM.
