He was born on November 9th, 2009, to parents Lindsey and Perry Beane. Colby was a loving brother and son whose sole concern was making others happy, especially his little sister. He loved Pokemon, Battlebots, lacrosse and was always up for a pun or dad joke (good or bad). Everyone who knew him knew the power of his hugs, which he gave out to any and everyone he could. Colby was a sweet and gentle soul who touched the lives of all that met him during his much too short time on earth.

Colby is survived by his parents, Perry and Lindsey; siblings, Sam and Aiden; grandmother, Camela Crutchfield and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who love him very much.

A Celebration of Life will be held to honor Colby on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at the Greensboro Children’s Museum from 6 to 8 p.m. If you have one, please feel free to honor Colby by wearing your funniest t-shirt or bring a great pun or dad joke to add to his memorial joke book.

In lieu of flowers please consider donations to a Pediatric Cancer Foundations that provides vital research and support for pediatric patients.
