COLIN ROBERT McFARLANE
November 30, 1936 to November 04, 2019
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our loving husband, dad, grandpa, and great grandpa, Colin Robert McFarlane on Monday, November 4, 2019 at the age of 82 years.
Colin leaves behind his loving wife, partner and best friend of 59 years Jennifer; sons Colin, Stewart (Gina) and Grant; grandchildren Melissa (Paul), Braeden, Korie, Jennifer, Joanna, Munroe, Ceally and Henely; great grandchildren Imogen, Thaddeus, Loki and Moira; older brother Jimmy McFarlane in Scotland, along with numerous nieces and nephews also in Scotland.
Colin is predeceased by his granddaughter Haley, his little angel in heaven.
Colin was born in Dundee, Scotland on November 30, 1936 to Colin and Elizabeth McFarlane. On March 26, 1960 Colin married the love of his life Jennifer (née Napier) McFarlane. Colin, along with Jennifer and their three boys immigrated to Canada, landing in Winnipeg, MB in 1967 the spring after the Toronto Maple Leafs last won the Stanley Cup.
Colin was a deeply loyal and devoted, long suffering Leafs fan. Most Saturday nights Colin would be in HIS chair, watching Hockey Night in Canada, cheering for or cursing at his beloved Leafs. Colin passed this passion for the Maple Leafs onto all three of his sons.
If there was anything Colin was more passionate about it was his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Colin was a loving, caring grandpa and great grandpa and his own, unique, special sense of humor, both playful and mischievous is going to be dearly missed by all.
