Bill Colville

William “Bill” James Colville, 66, of Pinellas Park, FL passed away peacefully on February 5, 2021 after fighting a long battle with cancer.

An incredible example of living life with strength, endurance, and love, Bill dedicated his life to his family and friends. He was selfless, kind, funny, loyal and the most diehard sports fan there was. He was an amazing husband and dad, and an even better “Gramps”. Bill was a graduate of Dixie Hollins HS and went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of South Florida. After Graduation, he worked at West Pharmaceutical Services as a Production Planner and retired after 33 years. Bill shared his passion and love of sports by volunteering as a coach and mentor at Pinellas Park National Little League and Sacred Heart Catholic School for many years. When Bill wasn’t working, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, and cheering on his beloved sports teams the St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rays, Lighting, USF Bulls and Florida Gators.

Bill will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. He is survived by his wife of nearly 44 years, Pam Naber Colville; his son, William “Billy” Colville; his daughter and son-in-law, Kari and Pat Liby; his grandchildren, Kelsea Jeanne and Patrick William Liby; his father, William T. Colville; and sister, Debbie Basile (Al). He is preceded in death by his mother, Genevieve “Jean” Colville.

Funeral Mass: at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Saturday February 20th at 1:00 pm. Masks will be required for all entering the church and social distancing will be maintained. There will also be a virtual option to view the service for those unable to attend.

I will truly miss my little brother that I loved very much, but I take comfort in knowing he is now with my Mom and his best friend Sonny in Heaven. I was disappointed he missed seeing his Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the Super Bowl , but I know he was there in a Sky Box. I believe my Angel Brother had something to do with all the errors the Kansas City Chiefs made since this team had not lost a game all season! My brother will forever be in the hearts of many people because he had a very… Read more »

I had the pleasure of working with Bill for many years. He would make the trek up to Pennsylvania periodically and would always stop by to say hi. He will be missed.

My condolences and prayers go out to Bill’s family. I had the honor and privilege of working with Bill at West for 30 years as part of the Supply Chain Planning team. Bill and I shared so so many laughs over the years. He was so quick witted. He was always there to help someone with a work related problem.
Bill was sorely missed when he retired and he will now be sorely missed by all as he takes his seat in heaven.
Gods bless his family!

Bill and I began our careers at West in 1984. We both retired at the end of 2017. During our 33 years working together I came to appreciate Bill’s love of family, his strong faith plus his love for the St. Louis Cardinals and Tampa Bay Bucs. Bill and I traveled together on a variety of business trips to the Northeast, Germany, Brazil, Arkansas, Alabama and many other locations I cannot even remember. Each trip was productive but was always filled with fun and laughs. Bill had the best sense of humor and was simply a great guy. I will… Read more »
