My husband and I lost our oldest friend. Both Colin & Joyce were wonderful people, and heaven is a better place now. Sending condolences to Colin's family.

Sincere condolences to your entire family Stan on Colin's passing.
He was my mentor when working in the lumber field and was always very patient and pleasant with me. I held the highest respect for him and enjoyed the company of both he and your mother at our FCL lumber social events.

So sorry to hear of Colin's passing. He and Joyce were wonderful people and we always enjoyed their company. Colin was my mentor. In 1960, then the second man in a two man lumber yard at Meadow Lake Co-op, I set my career goal to take any position offered to me that would lead me to be more like him.
Mavis and I offer our sincere condolences to Stan and the rest of the family.
Due to health reasons I regret that I will be unable to attend the service on the 8th.
