Smith, Colin William
Passed away peacefully at Huntsville District Memorial Hospital with his nursing staff by his side on Monday, March 20th, 2023, at the age of 77.
Colin leaves behind his cherished son James and many friends in Canada and the UK as well as many relatives and extended family in the UK, Canada and Australia to mourn his passing. Colin was predeceased by his beloved wife Brenda in 2019.
Formerly of Bedfordshire, England, Colin, Brenda and James moved from the UK to Canada in 2005 to purchase Parkway Cottage Resort and liked to travel in the off season. In 2018 the resort was sold, and Colin went into renovating neglected properties. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2021 and underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. He courageously fought to the end never giving up. He ran many marathons, half marathons for cancer research as well as enjoyed walks in Algonquin Park and authored several books under the pen name Tim. W. Nichols.
In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place.
