Uncle Colin was a very generous and welcoming man. There were many times years ago that I and a van full of my friends and then in later years when i was with my family would drop in on he and Aunty Elaine at Brushgrove to be given whatever meal was closest to that time and then treated to great stories of recent fishing adventures and yarns from the past. I’ll always miss those times.

To Ian, Lyn and families,
I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Col your Father and Grandfather. He was a wonderful man and friend and always made me very welcome. I always got a lot of pleasure when I stayed with him and Elaine and enjoyed very much our little fishing expeditions on the river. You will be missed very much.
Rest peacefully Col,
Ian C.
