I really enjoyed working with Colin. He was a talented Editor and Journalist but he was as Slyvie said was a "Mensch". It just won't be the same without him at Design West and not seeing him at Embedded World is very sad.

So terribly sad, he was a truly one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting...I'll miss him greatly.

When I joined EE Times, it was Colin who made me feel the most welcome. He would come over to my desk when he was in town and start a little chat, and we'd exchange anecdotes, and I remember thinking he was a really awesome guy. I told him once that I was fascinated with world war two technology and he lent me a book about code cracking in the 1940's. It was amazing, and I'll remember it forever. There's a yiddish word that perfectly sums up Colin to me... that word is "Mensch". Wishing his family a long life, and although this is sad sad sad news, I'm glad Colin finally found peace after his illness and pain.

This is a big loss; not only personally, but also for our industry. I subscribe to Paul's words. Wish all colleagues at UBM, and Colin's family all the strength in the period to come. Sander Arts
