RIP Lance Colton

This past weekend, Lance Colton passed away unexpectedly. He was a co-worker and although I didn't know him all that well, he seemed to be a genuinely bright and friendly chap.

I ended up at camaros.net because of this story https://www.camaros.net/colton/ about his dad (who was killed in Iraq) and their 68 Camaro. Even though its 8+ years old I am sure that some here will remember him.

RIP Lance

Re: RIP Lance Colton

Hi Steve I appreciate you taking the time to find our site and inform us of Lance's passing. It's always sad when you hear of someone passing but it's especially hard when the person passing on is young and didn't get the chance to live the life most of us take for granted!

I met both Lance and his mom Inge, both were very nice down to earth folks. Of course Lance was not even old enough to drive at the time...

Here are a couple threads from Sema when the car was presented. There are pictures of Lance, Inge and some of the motley crew from this site that made the trip to Las Vegas for the presentation of the Colton Camaro!

My condolences to Inge, now loosing both the men in her life and to all that knew and love Lance! RIP

...Dennis
