RISING, Colin

0

Peacefully with his family at his side on January 18, 2016 in his 85th year.

Loving husband of Ann of 59 years and dear father to Trevor (Catherine) of Sault Ste. Marie, and Neville (Lynn-Anne) of London, Ontario. Proud grandfather of Drew, Liam, Rachel, Mitchell and Meagan.

Colin was born on September 12, 1931 in South Shields, England and he and his family immigrated to Canada in 1968 to start their Canadian adventure in Saskatchewan.

Relocating to Sault Ste. Marie in 1971, Colin was employed at Sault College as an Educator in the Mechanical Engineering Department from which he retired in 1995. Colin was an active volunteer in Sault Ste. Marie’s youth soccer program for over 40 years serving in many different capacities. Thursday nights were special for Colin as he tipped a pint regularly with close friends.

Family and friends are invited to the Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Friday, January 22, 2016 from 6 to 8 pm to celebrate his life. A Private family service will be held.

Memorial contributions to the SAH Critical Care Fund would be appreciated by the family.

Special thanks to Dr. Ghosh of the Sault Area Hospital Intensive Care Unit, Dr. Martin of the London Health Science Centre Intensive Care Unit and the many nurses, respiratory therapists and other staff members at the Sault Area Hospital and the Victoria Hospital in London for their care and compassion.
