Colin and I went to a dinner theatre while we were teenagers. It was so much fun and something I’ve always remembered. Although I only saw him once in the last several years I was reminded then of what a kind, gentle man he was.
Please know that you are all in my heart. I’m so very sorry for your loss.

I’ve known Collin since 1990 when I came to the U.S. to be married to his brother. The only words I can use to describe Collin are humble, kind, and patient. He was more than a brother in law, he was a real brother to me. Collin was someone you could always count on to be there without a doubt. His greatest joy was being around the family and friends that he loved, especially his nephews and their friends. My heart is broken seeing you leave us so fast. A hero only dies once. You’ll be loved and missed forever.

Uncle Colin was my friends, brother, and more specifically my Uncle C! Uncle Colin had always been a like a father for me, ever since I can remember he was right next door. I used to run to his house when I was younger to get pop-tarts and soda because my folks wouldn’t let me have them at home. Uncle Colin was a quite person who kept to himself most of the time, but when he wanted to he was the life of a party. I also had the privilege of learning all of my Masonic degrees under my uncles instruction. I have countless memories I would love to share but the list is endless. Uncle, this one was the most painful thing I’ve ever had to deal with hands down, u were always there for me when I needed a friend. My uncle was a strong man so I’ve held my tears back since I’ve gotten the news. I will miss you forever Unc I know that you will always watch over me because you used to do that long before you were gon. I love you Uncle Colin may you rest peacefully and I’ll see you in the next one!

Growing up with Nathan, Uncle Collin was there to see me grow up. I have countless cherished memories at the house on Becky with the, “weird roof”, as I use to call it growing up. You have always treated me as another one of the Kiser boys, and that’s how it felt. You were, and always will be family to me. Thank you for everything Uncle Collin. I’ll see you on the other side.

Once, when I drove from college to visit the Kiser family, I parked my car at Colin’s house while Zak and I went to see a friend in Dallas. I came back that night and Colin told me that my car seemed to need an oil change, so he went ahead and took care of everything for me; he even had it cleaned. This was the type of man Colin was. I’ve never known someone to be so casually helpful, present, and kind. Always. I’m convinced that he wasn’t even aware of his amazing selflessness. He just was this way. He loved being around, taking care of others, making everyone happy in anyway that he could. I felt like Colin was my very own uncle and I’m so lucky to have known him. What a strong, brave, genuine man he was. I often see so much of him in Zak. The absolute best kind of man. He’ll be missed forever, and I know that if he were here he’d be doing anything that he could to stop my tears, so I’ll be strong and smile like he’d prefer.

Colin Kiser was an incredible man who did so much for our country, but to my brothers and I he was always Uncle Colin. He was a person who was always there for us, ready with a goofy joke or a good story. I had countless good times with my Uncle, watching sports and old movies, driving all around Texas, and just talking. He was always there for my family and he always made time for cookouts and parties. Once he even traveled all the way to Brazil to visit us for only a few days, giving us all of his free time. He never complained no matter the circumstances and he taught me many life lessons. We did not deserve my Uncle Colin, but I am so glad we had him. Uncle Colin Kiser will be sorely missed but never forgotten. We love you.

Colin was a stellar human being. He was kind, witty, smart, humble....His yes was yes, and his no, no. He was trustworthy; all these attributes, personified in one individual is rare. He will be missed, yet, those Christ-formed qualities were indeed "caught" by many...and will continue ad infinitum. Thanks for your rich legacy my friend!!

Colin was a great man. He was an even greater Uncle. He always made sure that he was present in our lives and was always a phone call away when I needed advice. His home was always open and welcome to us. My brothers, Zachary & Nathan, and myself we have a tremendous amount of respect for our Uncle. My daughter Everly adored him and I am sad that she will grow up without getting to know him. I know that he is resting now and no longer in pain. He is in heaven with Momma Delle and Daddy O watching over all of us. Thank you Uncle Colin for being the glue helping to hold this family together. Thank you God for our Uncle and the time we had with him.
