    I’ve known Colin since preschool and I think even nursery school. Although I do not remember those days, i do remember Colin quite well from high school. He loved the outdoors: scouts, hiking, and fishing. He always preferred to ride his bike to school. He knew to avoid the wrong groups of people and had many friends. He was also a very hard-working and bright student with many goals. Whenever he had free time he would often be found reading. He was a very positive and friendly guy to be around and will never be forgotten.
