Will miss you dad more than you will know. You took us all on a journey around the world as a family and we learnt more from those experiences than you can in any class room. These memories will stay with me for ever, and you will be forever be in my thoughts. Love you dad. Xxx

Col was a much loved uncle (more like an elder brother) with whom we have spent many happy times and we will miss him so much. Over the years he has enriched the lives of so many, not only his family and friends but also colleagues and students both here and abroad. His love of sport, including football and his legendary marathons across the world will not be forgotten.
