05 October 1948 – 13 February 2021
Colin passed away peacefully in Dunstan Hospital, Clyde on Saturday 13th February 2021.
Colin will be deeply missed by family, friends and acquaintances throughout the region and country.
Colin spent his life inspiring and supporting many through his friendship and ministry.
A love of nature has led this adventurer through mountain passes, across rivers and through traverses barely touched by others. His footsteps are embedded on the peaks of the mighty Remarkables.
In later years Colin devoted his attention to beekeeping creating a paradise alongside his wife Jan in Pearson Road.
Jan, Their daughter Carolyn and sons Tim and Peter, alongside, Matt, Suzy and Zoe and ten grandchildren will forever be inspired by Colin and his work on earth.
