Colin enjoyed motor car racing, mucking about improving the cottage and most of all, spending time with his family and friends. Upon retirement to Vineland they enjoyed a great community of friends and traveled abroad.
A heartfelt thank you to the amazing staff at CAMA Woodlands LTC Home, Burlington, for their care.
