Colin Matthew Studer, age 18, resident of New Washington, Ohio, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. He was born on September 3, 1996 in Fostoria, Ohio to Matthew S. and Tammy L. (Crum) Studer and had been a life long New Washington resident. He had attended Buckeye Central Schools and most recently the Seneca County School of Opportunity.
He is survived by his parents; a sister, Emma; maternal grandmother, Nancy Crum of Bucyrus; paternal grandparents, Ken and Marilyn Studer of Tiro; an uncle, Dominic (Mandy) Studer; four aunts, Jennifer (Terry) Studer-Miller; Jill (Kevin) Heydinger; Jessica Hollins; and Tina (Steve) Seiler; paternal great grandmother, Mildred Kin; and numerous cousins and friends.
He is preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Glen Crum; maternal great grandparents, Donald and Helen Crum; and paternal great grandfather, Eugene Kin.
Colin had a love for life and for people. His number one hobby was watching and attending any sporting event especially when his sister was participating. The Buckeye Central Bucks, the OSU Buckeyes, Cavs, Indians, and Browns were his favorites! WQEL phone board, coaches corner, and Davey Jones made Colin smile. He loved going to school and attending Holy Trinity Catholic church. Colin was very excited to enter his vegetables at the Crawford County Fair, and he also looked forward to being at all of his sister’s 4-H events. Going out to eat was another one of Colin’s favorite activities. Pisanellos, Rader’s Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream, and Applebees were his favorite places. Colin was the Chatfield Halloween King, BC Freshman homecoming attendant, and most recently was elected student council president at school. Colin was in BC FFA and was the co-founder of the muffin business at BC. He worked at Richard’s Landscaping, Bucyrus YMCA, and The Carlisle Place during the summers. Colin had a special love for his long time caregiver, Tonia. He enjoyed going on bike rides, 4-wheeler rides and most importantly just being around his family and friends. Colin will be most remembered for his infectious smile, laugh, and love of life, and would want us to live out his legacy by greeting everyone with a smile!
Visitation will be held on Sunday, January 11, 2015 from 1:00 to 8:00 PM at the St. Bernard Catholic School Gymnasium in New Washington, Ohio. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday at 10:00 AM at St. Bernard Catholic Church with Father John Miller officiating. Burial will follow in Mother of Sorrows Catholic Cemetery in North Auburn, Ohio. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Colin Studer Scholarship Fund for his sister, Emma at Citizens Bank in New Washington or any other Citizens Bank branch.

Tammy, Matt, Emma and Grandparents,
I just want you to know I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Colin fondly, working with him as an infant and as a young boy. Working with Colin was a family affair and I so enjoyed getting to know so many of his family members that offered support and care to him, and even to the team that worked with him. Sincere condolences, and know that I miss him too, and will take heart in his enthusiastic spirit and his loving nature.

Dear Tammy, Matt and Emma….There are no adequate words to describe the sorrow you are experiencing as you bid farewell to Colin after this life. BUT the wonderful thought for you to remember is that Colin is now running, jumping, and moving happily in his new body in heaven. His wonderful spirit is lighting up the heavens and all the saints! May God uphold you and keep you in His loving arms as he is doing for Colin.

So sorry to learn about Colin. He was a very brave, happy person to cope with his disease all these years. And your family are to be commended the way he was always taken care of. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Tammy, Matt, Emma and Nancy through this sad time. We will not be able to make it for visitation or funeral with the weather and just getting over the flu. We do want you to know we’re thinking of you. We have God’s own promise we will one day see our loved ones again; and I’m sure Colin is in the arms of Grandpa Glen at this very moment. Love, Barb and Wayne Marquart

Tammy, Matt, Emma,
I am so sorry to hear the news. Colin was a precious boy who brought joy to so many people.
I remember the first time I came to your home when he was a baby. What a doll! You gave him every advantage and all the love and attention as you were a wonderful family to him.
I won’t ever forget knowing Colin the first few years of his life.
Prayers are with you and I know he is spreading that smile in heaven.

Matt,Tammy & Emma,
What can I say that hasn’t already been said. Colin was one of Gods special people. His smile and laughter could light up a whole gym, as we all know, Anyone who might have been having sad thoughts would loose them real soon when Colin smiled. He was Gods gift to us all. We will be praying for you, in the time to come, that god will give you strength and comfort. Anything we can do, just call.
Tom and Mary McCarthy.

Tammy, Matt, Emma, and family, it is with deepest sympathies that we write in remembrance of Colin. Al agrees that Colin was a joy in my classroom. I loved his jokes and our morning chats at the classroom door, and our strolls down the hallway. I say he taught the teacher. He taught me to live each day, to greet everyone with a smile and to laugh…laugh out loud from deep down inside. He is infectious. May God wrap you all in His loving arms and give you peace, hope, comfort, and rest. Lifting prayers.

To all of you who loved Colin words are hard to say because he was loved by many. Your family gave Colin one of the most awesome lives any family can give their child. Please keep those happy memories of his special smile and giggles close through these next days. We all loved him and will miss him but Heaven gained a very special angel whose smile will keep the other angels smiling. God Bless you Tammi and Matt and Emma. Dick and Lorna Ackerman and boys
