“A million words won’t bring you back, we know because we’ve tried. Neither will a million tears, we know because we’ve cried.”
Colin sadly passed away at Leighton Hospital surrounded by the love and care of his family, aged just 43 years.
Dearest dad of Harrison. The beloved son of Geoff and the late Paula. Cherished brother of Julie, Mandy, Martin and Ruth. A loving partner to Sally, Col will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by all who knew him.
Colin was born in Crewe on 31st March, 1975. He attended Wistaston Green Infant and Junior school, where he was very popular with his peers, who called him ” The Milky Bar Kid”. After school he would play in the street, on his blue chopper bike, making ramps and doing bike stunts, with his friends. Later he attended Kings Grove High School where he became very popular with the girls. Colin enjoyed sports, including karate, hence his name “Ninj”. He loved music and would play his guitar and keyboard in his bedroom. When he left school he became an apprentice joiner , something he really enjoyed. The family later moved to Shavington where Colin, his dad and his friend Craig used to visit “The Vine” at the weekends. Colin started his own business with his friend Wayne and his younger brother. After a few years they went their separate ways.
At 25 or 26 years old Colin met a girl, and after a while, his son Harrision was born. Colin loved Harrison dearly but sadly the relationship with Harrison’s mother broke down. He later met Sally who loved and cared for him through his illness, until the end. He adored his neices and nephews and idolised his late mother, sadly, never really coming to terms with her loss. Colin was a kind, generous, creative and loving person who helped anyone in need.
His funeral will take place on Thursday 21st March at the Crematorium Chapel, Crewe at 12noon, followed by cremation.
