I see Colin was at CH for some of the time I was although I never knew him.

He sounds a good bloke and highly regarded. Sadly I have come across a lot of bright people who have been cursed with early onset dementia. My own Uncle was one.

RIP Colin.

Very sad news indeed.
I was a contemporary of Colin's at CH.
I didn't know him that well, but he was a good guy.
There's a longer obituary here, with a brief mention of CH:
