Obituary for Ronald E. Colvin

A Berrien Springs icon passed away on Sunday, December 10, 2017: Ronald E. Colvin - known to all as RC. He was the first New Year’s Baby born on January 1, 1943 in Waco, Texas, to the late Andrew Jackson Abernathy Colvin and Ruth McFalls. He died at the age of 74.

RC graduated from Berrien Springs High School in 1961. RC built businesses and provided jobs for many people in the community. He could be a generous mentor, helping those who help themselves, and many times, helping those who were helpless. However, he was so much more than a provider for his family and friends, he was our foundation.

RC’s businesses include JC Concrete Inc., JC Waterproofing and JC Conveying, which he grew into this area’s largest residential and light commercial concrete company over the past 37 years. RC and his wife, Jo, also owned and operated The RoundTable Bar & Grill, which provided a refuge for people to relax, reflect and try to shoot their best game of pool.

RC is survived by wife, Jo Colvin; sons: Greg [Carlene] Colvin–Garcia, Ron [Michele] Colvin, Brad [Jenn] Johnson, Ken [Danielle] Johnson; daughter, Karen Delgado; grandchildren: Paige Colvin, Garrett Delgado, Jade & Eva Colvin-Garcia, Taylor & Ty Johnson, Chloe, Tori & Logan Johnson. RC was preceded in death by Francine Colvin and grandson, Travis Johnson.

A celebration of RC’s life will be held at Allred Funeral Home in Berrien Springs: visitation 4-8 p.m. Friday, December 15, and funeral 10 a.m. Saturday, December 16, and will finish at RC’s final resting place, Rose Hill Cemetery in Berrien Springs. Memories may be shared at
