Passed away after a very brief illness at Health Sciences Centre on March 8, 2021.

Left with wonderful memories of almost 30 years of marriage, his wife Sally Trainor.

After travelling the world, Colin knew Newfoundland was the only place he wanted to be as he found true love and exceptional friends.

Colin’s love, kindness, and stories will always be with us.

I remember Colin when he was with the Canadian Corp of Commissionaires at the RCMP building in White Hills. He was always very professional but displayed that wry English sense of humour from time to time. Rest In Peace good Sir!
