Colin’s brief but impactful life was cut short after a courageous battle with cancer (Burkitt’s Lymphoma).
Colin went to be with Jesus on July 5, 2010 at the age of 29 years. Colin was a loving and patient husband and father who was anxious to begin his Policing career.
Colin leaves to cherish his memory his faithful and devoted wife Melissa, their two little boys, Corban (age 4) and Keegan (age 2). He is also survived by his parents, Neil and Darlene Burritt; his brothers, Brad (Taegen) and Kris (Jennie); one sister, Nicole (Simon) Cripps; his parents-in-law, Glen and Sue Motz, and a brother-in-law Andrew (Natalie) Motz, as well as grandparents and numerous nieces and nephews.
Colin will be dearly missed by family and his many friends whose lives he touched along the way. A memorial tea will be held July 24, 2010 at Greendale MB Church gymnasium, 6550 Sumas Prairie Rd., Greendale, starting at 10:00am.
