It is with a very heavy heart that I have to let you know that Colin was killed this week near his home in Ireland. He was 27 years old.
Despite not having posted here since 2015, many of you will remember Colin as a prominent member of the forum, and I am sure many of you will share my sadness.
Life was not always easy for Colin, but he was outwardly kind and incredibly endearing. I had the pleasure of meeting, drinking and dancing with him in London and I can confirm that offline - as he was on - he was the same charming character.
He helped make others' lives better by teaching abroad, he was an obsessive of Countdown (and was delighted when he managed to appear on the show) and like many of us, he adored pop music. I'll be playing some Girls Aloud this evening in his honour
Colin, whether your real life friends or online acquaintance, we will all miss you and hope you can now rest in peace.
Colin John Tuite
