MATHEWS, Colin Edward
1948 - 2013
Colin Mathews passed away on Tuesday, December 10th at the age of 65. He was born in Sydney, Australia to Jack and Joan Mathews. After meeting on a holiday in Tahiti, Colin gave up the sun and surf to immigrate to Vancouver in 1981 to marry his loving wife. He was a long time employee of the Bank of Nova Scotia. Colin is survived by his wife Hilary and his son Craig of New Westminster, and his mother Joan and brother Allan (Julie) of Sydney. He was predeceased by his father Jack and daughter Caroline. He will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and quiet sense of humour. Thank you to supportive friends, kind neighbours, and the wonderful staff at Crossroads Hospice. A special thank you to Colin's mates in Australia for a lifetime of friendship and support. Enjoy sailing with Len. No service at Colin's request.
