Gene M. Colvin, 56, passed away on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 in Chesapeake, Virginia. He was born on January 7, 1963 and was the son of James and Hazel Colvin. Gene served in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman and later worked as a lab technician at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth for nearly 15 years.

Gene had a passion for photography, music, and dancing to Latin music. Through his photography he showed us his view of the world. He noticed the small things. He found the beauty of a drop of water on a leaf or small pebble on the beach. He loved sunsets, sunrises and everything in between.

He was an eternal optimist. His unbreakable spirit helped him maintain his easy smile as he fought for his life and health. Always compassionate, always grateful, his warmth and kindness remain in the hearts of those who love him.

He had an unquenchable curiosity. He never stopped learning and asking questions. This drive motivated his academic accomplishments. One his proudest moments was earning a master’s degree in public administration.
He loved traveling, good food and most of all spending his time talking with his grandchildren.

Gene is survived by his wife Rosana Colvin; his parents, James and Hazel Colvin; sisters, Debbie and Mauriel; daughter, Chyna; and grandchildren, Chris, Seven, Egypt, and Selena
A visitation for Gene will be on Thursday, March 14, 2019 from 4:30 pm to 5:30pm with a funeral service starting at 5:30pm at Family Choice Burials & Cremations.

Memorial contributions may be made to Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

Please share a memory with the family via the Memorial Wall tab.

I meet Gene at my first duty station, I was all of 20 years old. We always talked about anything and everything and sometimes argued about the same but he was also a nice guy. I send my thoughts, light, and love to his family.

Gene was like a brother to me. Whenever I needed to talk he was always there to listen, when I needed to vent he was there. He was my bestfriend. Gene you will be missed.
