It is with great sadness that we announce Colin's passing at the age of 72. He left our world at home in Squamish, BC after a brief and courageous struggle with cancer.

Born in Northern Ireland he immigrated to BC with his family in 1957. After completing his schooling, at UBC, with an engineering degree, Colin spent over 20 years in the pulp & paper industry. He moved to Squamish in 1986 where he was a dedicated & valued asset to the Woodfibre pulp mill for 10 years.

With his wealth of knowledge, Colin thrived on building things & problem solving. In 2002, he acquired a 1960 Scottish 40' wooden Northern Sea trawler named 'Fifer Lady.' Over the next 7 years he oversaw & took part in her redesign & rebuild. From then on, visiting & detailing Fifer Lady became his daily hobby & labour of love. Captain Colin skippered Fifer Lady to many wooden boat festivals & has won several awards.

Colin is survived by Anna (Kirman), his '1st mate' & spouse of 29 years, stepsons Jake & Mike (Mathauser), siblings Jean (Morrison), David & Jeremy (Lyttle). Also left to mourn his loss are his extended family, many friends& colleagues. Colin will be forever loved & greatly missed.

A 'Celebration of Life' will be held in the afternoon of August 10, 2019 at the family home in Brackendale. Please RSVP by July 20, 2019 to annasat@shaw.ca.

I only met Colin and Anna over the last three or so years , because of our mutual history involving “ Fifer Lady”. They both charmed me with their gentle demeanours and approachability. The result of Colin’s passion for the boat and restoration is truly amazing. Colin’ loss is a real sad one as people of his character seldom come along . Only wished I knew him longer. God speed Colin ! Mike Wrohan.

My first memory of Colin was when we were paired in an English class to report on some poem or something. He was shy, quiet, and not very into poetry! Colin and I had a few mutual friends, and as a result had many good laughs and visits, particularly during the UBC years. Often there would be a gathering over lunch outside. After Colin moved to Prince George, I had a chance to see him again, when he invited me to join him for his special "potato skins" at his home. I was invited to join him and his brothers and some mutual friends at Gabriola Island, which was another chance to visit with Colin. After his move to Squamish, we did get to meet Anna, and also see their fascinating home and garden, as well as get a tour of his superbly restored wooden vessel "Fifer Lady". I didn't know Colin was so close to death, and it is sad to know he left this world so soon.
