Ricky Zane Colville passed away at 43 years old on Thursday May 23 after a tragic motorcycle accident. He was born on October 27, 1975 in Forsyth County.

Rick was the biggest UNC fan. He enjoyed playing golf and basketball. He was an avid boater and motorcyclist. If there was a way to get something done Rick would figure out how to do it. He loved his family and was a generous man.

Rick has made a huge impact on many lives. He was a business man in the car industry for over 20 years. He loved his customers and they loved him back. They all say he treated them like family.

Rick is survived my his wife Amber Richards Colville of the home, two sons Colin and Jude, their mother Carrie, and a stepdaughter Madison. He was loved by them more than he could have ever imagined and he will be sorely missed.

    I can’t believe it. Thank you so much for everything. You saved my butt more than once. I will miss catching up every few years friend. I definitely would have hugged you a little tighter the last time if I knew it was going to be the last time... may you Rest In Peace “Sam” until we meet again
