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.
