Ronald Dean Colvin, 73, passed away on Jan. 15 at Maine Medical Center in Portland after a courageous three-month battle following multiple complications from surgery.

The founder and CEO of his own marketing consulting business Adams & Thayer, he retired early to Waldoboro and Freeport, Grand Bahama where he enjoyed all the pleasures of living on the ocean – boating, walking on the beach, feeding the birds, drinking martinis, eating lobster, golfing, reading, and spending quality time with loved ones.
He is predeceased by his eldest brother, Arthur E. Colvin Jr. in 2000; and nephew, Arthur E. Colvin III in 2001.
He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Nadia Colvin; brother, David B. Colvin and wife Paula; sister, Marilyn L. Stewart and husband E. Scot Stewart; son, Christopher D. Colvin and wife Kellie; daughters, Kelley Colvin Hill and husband Keith Hill, Courtney D. Colvin and husband Jose Portillo, and Natalie Warganik and husband Clifford Thifault; grandchildren, Ryan, Bradley, and Taylor Colvin; first wife, Pamela C. Markley; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, other family members, and close friends.
