He eventually built the house where they raised their family. He was an involved father who loved coaching his son’s baseball and basketball teams. He was an avid fan of the Portland Trail Blazers.
In 2006, Colin met, and eventually married, Karrie McGuire. He and Karrie loved spending time with their grandchildren.
