December 11, 1993 ~ November 30, 2008
A bouncing baby boy was born Dec. 11, 1993 to Terrence A. Collier and Andrea L. Collier. He was the apple of their eyes along with both sets of grandparents. His Gee Gee (Grandma Collier)always dressed him with matching hats or caps, with her he could do no wrong.
Tristan went to day care, kindergarden, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade in the East Central Independent School District. After his family moved to San Antonio, he went to Spring Meadow Elementary on to Woodlake Hill Middle School to finish 8th grade in May 2008. In August 2008 he entered Judson's grey campus. He was a good student a made good grades.
Tristan loved sports especially track & field, basketball and football, his artificial valve and medication prohibited him from playing contact sports.
He received a tissue valve on October 3, 2008 and then on November 21st, he received a heart transplant. In the wee hours of Saturday, November 29, 2008, Tristan's blood pressure dropped. He had finally got out of the sixty days maze course, and with baton in hand Triston took off to finish the last twenty four hours marathon journey, for you see his Gee Gee Collier was there to welcome him as he crossed the finish line at 4:50am, November 30th. Tristan fought a good fight, and he finished the course.
He leaves his mom in good hands with Marshall, Taylor, Denee, Grandma and Papa Walter and Mr. and Mrs. Louis Matney. He leaves love to his dad, Dominick, Tione, Tiashia, and Grandpa (Elder)William Collier. He leaves his thanks the doctors and nurses at the Methodist Hospital along with Mrs. Watkins, Mrs. Lott, Richard Montoya and Juan Rosas. He leaves his gratitude to Chaplain Van Pelt and he will miss his 9th grade class at Judson's grey campus and his teacher.
