Additionally, he found delight in spending time with his car and caravan, embracing the freedom and adventure they provided.
Above all else, Colin was a devoted family man. He cherished the moments spent with his grandchildren, relishing in their laughter and forming lifelong bonds. His love and support knew no bounds, and his family held a special place in his heart. Colin’s warm presence and genuine care made him an invaluable member of his family, and his memory will forever live on in their hearts.
