Dear Lucelle & family,
I was so sad to read that Colin had died.
Geoff Melotti & I met you and Colin at a Zuill party soon after we moved to Bermuda in August, 1975 & were living at Somersall, at the top of Peak Rd. I remember Colin so well as he was the most amazingly humerous, talented & generous person. The first time we met we chatted about antiques, architecture, KBB, sailing etc etc. I was a keen sailor & so he offered his very large, heavy Kestrel Dinghy for us to use when ever we desired.
We used that boat almost every w/e for our first year in Bermuda. Then along came the children & rather curtailed dinghy sailing for a while!
We lost touch after you moved to Portugal but met again several yrs ago when you returned to Bda.
In those early years I always enjoyed chatting with Colin in the kitchen early in the morning prior to heaving the dinghy across the road and into the water.
We also made friends with Chris at some stage in those early years & had fun sailing with him.
Colin's knowledge of antiques & Bermuda history was amazing.His sense of humour & irreverent jokes were second to none.
We always had a good laugh. He had a certain twinkle in his eye and you knew you were in for some an unashamedly raucous laughter.
I hope that the wonderful memories of Colin will help you through this sad time.
He lived for the day I am sure. He adored Lucelle & Chris & I am sure the rest of his family.
To know him was a privilege.
He is gone but not forgotten.
Sincere condolences to you and your family.

Can't say how much I'm going to miss Colin - will never forget the hours of conversation and fun in Reriz, going to bed at 9 am after a night of the undrinkable Chateau Cooke. A unique, human, hilarious and very lovable man. from his godson Andrew
