In Loving Memory ~

Colin Dunn passed away in the early morning of March 20, 2024, at the age of 83 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Despite this diagnosis and the related health challenges over the past year, Colin's humour never faltered, even when in palliative care, and he stayed strong until the end.

A proud family man, Colin leaves behind Sara, his devoted wife of almost 52 years, his adoring children - Kas (Jen, Winston) and Nina (David, Ella and Aidan) and his loving sister Shirley.

Colin's cheerful attitude, friendliness, and great humour will be missed by all who knew him.

Colin was passionate about geology, and he worked tirelessly for decades to advance the field of biogeochemistry as it relates to exploration.

The family will hold their own private ceremony in the coming days. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital in Colin's name:
