I have great memories from the years at Tiwai, working with Colin. He was a good man. Deepest sympathy to you, Margaret and your family.
Neville Wallace, CHRISTCHURCH
In my time at Tiwai i interacted with Colin on many work and project issues. Colin was always cooperative obliging and took the time to explain in terms i understood some of the complexities of systems we had to work with. Outside of work he had a god given skill he enhanced to converse in subjects more dear to me than him.
A top bloke indeed.
Margaret, family and friends, please accept our deepest sympathy from Ann & I at your sad loss of a loved one
RIP Colin.
Stu Munro, Invercargill
