Colton James Boring, age 22, of Carrollton and formerly of Dover, passed away May 12, 2019, following injuries sustained from an automobile accident.

Born in Dover on August 29, 1996, Colton was “Mama’s Boy” to his mother, Gretchen (Sensel) Boring and a best friend to his father, Frank Boring.

After graduating from Dover High School and Buckeye Career Center in 2015, Colton followed in his dad’s footsteps, continuing his education at Northwest Lineman College in Denton, Texas, where he focused his education on power line construction. He was a devoted apprentice with Henkel & McCoy and was a member of IBEW Local 71.

Colton was blessed to have met and be engaged to his lifelong friend, Franchesca Faye “Frankie” Fantin, with plans of an October wedding. Together, they were the proud parents of their furry children, Tank and Tequila.

Whether Colton was at Bob Evans, the Midvale Speedway, or on the job site, he knew no strangers. He befriended everyone he met and left each conversation and interaction better than it began.

Being in the outdoors, whether on a four-wheeler, fishing, or on a job site, was Colton’s place of peace. He was passionate about everything he did, always giving the best of himself to the situation at hand.

In addition to being the joy of his parents’ lives; Colton was an exceptional, loving brother to his sisters, Caitlyn and Carley Boring of Dover. Many loving moments were shared on the phone or engaged in activity with his dear grandparents, Richard and Barbara Boring of Carrollton and Bob and Trudy Sensel of Atwood Lake. He will also be deeply missed by his fiance’s parents, Ed and Jen Fantin of Carrollton and his aunts and uncles that he loved dearly, Desta (John) Cooper, Angie (Dayne) Thomas, and Lisa (Scott) Tritt; his great-grandmother, Lois Maple; and his godson, Elijah Holt; in addition to numerous cousins and dear friends.

Visitation will be held in the Geib Funeral Center, 5600 N. Wooster Avenue Dover, on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 from 5 to 8 p.m. A service celebrating Colton’s life will be held in the funeral home on Thursday at 11 a.m. with burial to follow in Dover Burial Park.

Memorial contributions in Colton’s memory may be directed to the Tuscarawas County Humane Society, 1432 Tall Timber Rd. NE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

Frank and Gretchen it seems like it was just yesterday Colton learned he could stand in the house and push a button and make the trunk pop open on the car outside while it was raining and giggle with excitement as dad ran outside frantically to close the trunk. Colton always made others happy and laugh. He will be greatly missed and may God be with you all during this time and always.

My mind first flew to a day at the lake long ago, when all the kids were young and we were in the water, swimming around the boat. .. I can't remember exactly what it was he said, but he had me laughing so hard for so long I thought I was going to vomit Atwood water out of my nose. Already at that age, he was such an awesomely wonderful force!
