Our son and brother, Kolbie James McCune, age 22, died Saturday, January 4, 2014, due to complications of depression.

Though he often kept to himself, he was always open to his young cousins snuggling up to him to play video games.  And anyone engaging him in conversation would find someone of sharp intellect who often enjoyed challenging others’ ideas.  Kolbie spent much of his early life enjoying the outdoors with his family at the dunes or at the lake.
