Passed away peacefully on the 2nd of September 2009, at the Lodge on 4th, Ladysmith, BC. Collie was born at Cowichan Station, BC on the 12th of December 1930 and is survived by loving wife Marilyn, daughter Sandra (Gord) Ayer of Victoria, son Stephen (Emma) Colvin of Dalian, China, granddaughters Amy and Sarah Ayer, Claire Colvin and nieces and nephews.

Collie was the unofficial Mayor of Cloke Road and over the years voiced his opinions with letters to the Chronicle and Cowichan Leader Editors as well as Open Mike calls to radio talk shows. Collie loved a good laugh and was happiest when he was helping others.
