    Colin was a remarkable, compassionate, kind gentleman always helpful,and a truelly genuine person.
    We were sad to hear he had passed away,the world will be a sad place without him,once in a while every now and then there comes along a true gentleman, with sound morals and values young airmen and women have lost a phenomenal role model.
    Colin is now at peace joining the movers in the sky with Terry,Keith, and all his commrades, may God bless and care for them.
