    I was genuinely heartbroken when Storyteller told me about this and I couldn't shake it from my mind for ages. I was never the closest to Colin, but I did chat with him about his pet donkeys and stuff, and he was just so lovely, not to mention deliriously handsome. I'm not sure what to say here other than I hope he rests in peace and that his family and friends can find comfort in the time they did share with him. It's just so tragic. :(

    Just read this and I'm completely shocked.

    We had some wonderful conversations on MSN back in the day. He even created the Where's Everyone? topic for me almost ten years ago! We practically had identical tastes in music.

    He once made the following post about me:

    His music taste is exquisite - a member of the site who I can share my tastes very equally with.

    I don't think he posts enough on the site, and hope he can post more in the future. :(

    By the way, did I mention that - HE'S FREAKIN' HOT? Everyone wants a piece of him.

    Fredo <3.
    Just goes to show how extremely good-hearted and kind he was.

    All the best to you, Collie. I love you and I'll always remember you. The world lost an angel last month. <3

    Just saw this. Devastating. Hopefully he's in a better place now. Rest in peace :(

    I just found out about poor Colin. I followed him on Twitter and tonight I thought about him and realised I hadn't seen any tweet from him in a while. He often deleted his page if something was going on in his personal life. So when I couldn't find him, I wasn't immediately alarmed but I decided to investigate further because he had talked about depression and taking his own life very often on Twitter. I was shocked to see RIP Colin on the first post on his Instagram.

    Hearing that it was such a tragic accident and happened over a month ago is so awful to hear. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Colin despite being from Ireland but he was such a friendly, kind and hilarious person. He was so welcoming when I first joined this site and following him on Twitter for the past 7- 8 years allowed me to not only continue to enjoy Colin's personality but he also reminded me of the good times on UKmix years ago.

    I hope Colin has found peace and didn't suffer too much in the moments after that terrible accident. R.I.P. Colin. It was a pleasure.

    Incredibly sad we have lost Colin. He was one of the most genuinely kind humans to post on this forum and his absence will now always be felt.

    Oh gosh, I only have just seen this today.

    How awful. Col was a major contributor to our forum for several years. Another sad reminder that we must make the most of the time we have :(

    :( I remember too. Can't believe it. Rest in peace, Colin.

    What happened with the outcome of this? Was the driver caught?

    God bless Col - still very sad news that doesn’t quite compute with me.

    The fact I'm touched by this and never even interacted with him makes me wonder how much of an extended family UKMIX feels like. :(

    May he Rest In Peace.

    I've just seen this thread - about Colin's death - today.

    I did not know Colin at all, but he clearly made a deep & positive impression on those here who
    did know him.

    I am greatly saddened by his tragic death.

    My 'belief system' tells me that we go to a beautiful place when we die here. Colin will be there
    now & everyone who cared about him will one day be there with him. As are those who went
    there before Colin.

    A year since his passing, still have fond memories of him. He’d approve of all the recent Girls Aloud activity here and would love the latest Nuhdeen song regardless of how crap it is.

    Absolutely.

    He was such a seminal presence back in the good ol’ days of UKMIX, miss him around here.

    As much as I love the bump in Girls Aloud discussion (it needs to keep me going only 4 more years...), it’s sad to re-read his participation in them every time, but his loyalty and dedication to them always makes me smile.

    I've just seen on Twitter that it's 2 years to the day (yesterday) that lovely Col was killed - we definitely miss him here at UKMIX. I can't imagine what he'd be making of the Spice Girls reuniting or how rubbish pop music has become over the last couple of years.

    As I understand it, the person responsible for his death did eventually hand themselves in.

    That’s gone so quickly, he will always be a UKMIX legend for many of us from that era!

    Can’t believe it’s been 2 years. Over all the years we knew each other we had only met once. A shame really...
