After College, Colin lived and worked in St. Paul for many years before returning to Austin in 2005 to work with Brinkman Claims Service as a Multi-line Insurance adjuster. He enjoyed going to the office each day to be with, not just his coworkers, but his friends. Colin lived for his job and remained in that position until his passing.

Colin had a deep love of Minnesota sports, especially Gopher Hockey and the Minnesota Wild. He was happiest watching the games with friends and family. He also very much enjoyed complaining about the Vikings, reading books and cooking meals for those he loved. He always took care of those around him.

The world truly lost someone too young when Colin passed, and he will be greatly missed.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Edwards Catholic Church with Fr. James Steffes officiating, on Saturday, September 11th, 2021 at 11:00am. Friends may call one hour before the mass for visitation at the church. Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery.
