Oh wow. He was quite a character. Glad I had met him. Condolences to his family and friends.

Yes, very sad news. A great character who will be missed. I have good memories of working with Colin at PX.

What a Character.

Colin was quite a character with a very dry sense of humor. He was a stalwart of the Aero club where he parked his own aircraft, and where he attempted to fight off a bunch of rascals trying to rob the club. For that effort he copped an axe in the back. Very sad to hear of his passing.
