Luis Antonio Colón, was born on September 20, 1929 to Maria Lorenza Rodriguez and Antonio Colón in Lares, Puerto Rico. He had two siblings he adored, Isabel Perez and Angel Colón.

On February 20, 1954 he married his beloved Maria Judith Colón. They were soon blessed with two children, Marixsa (Ignacio) Lopez and Anthony (Janet). In 1961, he was baptized as a Jehovah Witness and together with his wife and children he dedicated his life to serving and teaching others about Jehovah.

He was cherished by many who affectionally also called him abuelo or simply Colón. He was a dear uncle to many including Norma, Evelyn, Ivette, Elizabeth, Octavio and Albert who will miss him dearly. He was especially loved by his 7 grandchildren, Jennifer(Pierre), Sarai(Carlos)Ramos, Josue(Tanya), Anthony(Irina), Naomi, Marcos (Jackie), and David. But perhaps his greatest joy came from his great grandchildren, Lauryn, Cristian, Jaylen, Aaron, Amaya, Layla, Malaya, Olivia, Ellie, Donovan, Celine, Ethan, and Marley. This was evident by the smile on his face whenever they were talked about or he was around them.

On January 20, 2021, Luis Antonio Colón passed away, but will live forever in the memories and hearts of all those who loved him.

Tio Colon was a happy man all the time, he was always joking around whenever he used to come visit he used to bother my brothers by biting there ears,this was when we were small. He loved sports, he would always watch baseball. I remember when my father bought a white van and we would all go to the kingdom hall. After we grew up we all went our separate ways, but whenever my parents got sick, he would always come to visit and be with us in our moments of sorrow, He used to love to be with my husband Raul because they would talk for hours.Him and my aunt Judith would always give me advice. He will be missed dearly, him and my aunt are together now, may he rest in peace and may God give comfort to my cousin Marixsa and Anthony and their families. Love use, Irma Rivera and family

The Vernon family sends our condolences to all your family. I remember growing up seeing how he was always dedicated to Jehovah. He would greet us with a nice firm handshake squeezing real tight.
My family would see him in the field ministry on Fridays and he would join us talking to our daughter telling her of stories when I was little. We would have nice conversations and can't wait to continue these conversations in paradise. He will be greatly missed.
