Dear Vanessa, Janice and family,

I am an old school friend of Colin's with the Zambian connection in common. He was in Meadows Boarding House, I was in Bainfield and we often shared flights to and from Lusaka and Edinburgh. I have many fond memories including us listening to David Bowie's Alladin Sane around the swimming pool at his house in Lusaka-I am sure Janice was there in her bikini! He had a great intellect with a wry sense of humour always combined with a twinkle in his eye. I was in awe of his ability to count endless numbers in his head and deliver an instant and correct answer ages before we had worked it out on a calculator. In our sixth year at school(1975) a mock election was held and Colin was instrumental in getting me to run as the Liberal Party Candidate. He ran as the SNP Candidate at a time when SNP had no chance of election success and little support in a school like George Watsons College yet SNP won the school mock election -entirely due to Colin's charisma, debating skills and tireless campaign. Although I last saw him at a school reunion quite some time ago, he will be sorely missed by me and many others-some of whom I hope to see at Colin's funeral.

Dear Vanessa, We have never met but I am an old school and university friend of Colin. Sadly, I never saw Colin after we left Aberdeen University, but he is a person of whom I have strong memories and counted as a friend all these years ago. I am so sad to hear of his passing at an age which is clearly too young.
Colin was a great guy, who was extremely popular at school. I don't know of anyone who didn't like "Scaf" and why should they? He was kind, friendly and pleasant with everyone, and really quite cool!. There was no side to Colin. What you saw was what you got.
We were both at Dunbar Halls of Residence together at Aberdeen and he was responsible for making me aware of Jethro Tull, the rock band, which has developed into quite an obsession to this day! I can clearly remember sitting in his room with him, listening to "Minstrel in the Gallery", an album he had just bought and enjoying the music together.
Colin was a lovely person and it is through the many memories that all his friends have of him at all the different stages of his life that he will continue to live on.
I hope it may bring you some comfort to know that he was very well liked by everyone at school and that his many friends will not forget him.
I am sorry that I will not be able to attend his funeral on Monday but he will most definitely be in my thoughts.
PETER FERGUSON. CLASS OF '75.
