Colt was an excellent student and in the eighth grade; beloved by fellow students, faculty and administration. He was part of the “Hogs” – the line in football playing both offense and defense. He was proud of his efforts and playing almost every single play of every game he was in. He was a phenomenal wrestler having only wrestled his seventh and eighth grade years. Everything he did was done to the best of his ability.
Colt was a hard worker. Previously mentored by Shawn and Tammy Grindheim, he was a 4-H member for several years, winning Grand Champion Replacement Heifer in 2017. He was a proud co-owner of Reisig Brothers Quality Custom Haying Company established in 2020. Colt had immense plans for the future including restoring his 1977 Ford Highboy pickup with Resurrection Automotive in Billings.
Colt’s friends were of paramount importance to him. He wanted them to know how much he loved them. He had become an avid weightlifter and spent time every day working out. He was also a gifted photographer and sketch artist. He was proud of his accomplishments and loved his animals. He saw the best in everyone and could articulate what he saw as exceptional in them and wanted everyone to be happy.
