Colin John

Club members who knew Colin will be saddened to hear that he died this morning, following a serious heart attack.

I worked with Colin as a Planner and Controller on a number of events and, as Rex Bleakman commented, he was a “A thoughtful, helpful and reliable DVO member.”

Our thoughts are with Jacqui, his wife, and the rest of his family. He moved to the Yorkshire Dales a number of years ago.
