Passed away peacefully on June 17, 2021 at the age of 88.
After 29 years employed at Chrysler Canada, Colin retired and became an avid blackjack player. (The dealers are now safe!) Colin had a loving jovial nature and enjoyed teasing any wait staff that served him with his one-liners. His favourite past times were playing chess, sudoku, kakuro and challenging puzzles.
