    My condolences to Cols family.
    Colin was my footy coach back in the mid 90s, and was just the most genuine caring bloke you could meet.
    I’ll always have fond memories of our “SuperCoach”
    And loved chatting about life and old times whenever me caught up. He always went out of his way to chat to you and want to know how you were doing.

    Oh Colin, you will be sadly missed. You were such a beautiful, kind, cheeky and funny man.
    Mitchell and Ryan loved it when Pa picked them up from school.
    They always told me funny stories about what you had done and jokes you told them.

    My favourite memory of Colin was one family Christmas with the Williams/Wilson’s. All the girls organised matchy matchy dresses with a Christmas pattern on them. I went outside and there was Colin ready for his Christmas lunch. He made a comment about the dresses, so I thought it was perfect timing to flash my behind to show off my Christmas knickers with “sleigh my name” printed on the bum.
    Poor guy got the shock of his life!
    Rest in Peace Pa Crackle, I hope you’re kicking back up there watching the newest season of Law & Order SVU x

    I’ve known Colin for over 50 years from the time he joined Wantirna South Cricket club and besides being one of life’s true gentleman, he was the most passionate supporter I have known bar none. Of all the people who have come and gone through the club’s doors, Colin was without a doubt my greatest mentor and provided a high level of support for me personally from day one. He will be greatly missed at the club even if it’s just that beaming smile we saw at the end of the day when the team walked off the field victorious. We loved you with all our hearts Col❤️❤️❤️. Deepest condolences to Sue, Kim and Troy.

    Deepest condolences to Sue, Troy, Kim & the extended family. You meet a lot of great people at sporting clubs over the years but not many that leave an impact like Col. Just a genuinely lovely guy and will be missed by so many.
    Wanny Sth won’t be the same without him…
    Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to the service (came down with Covid this morning) but will be watching online…
    Thinking of you all…
