About Colin & Sarah
Colin is from Teesside in the North East of England. At age 17 he joined The Royal Air Force and was trained as an Assistant Air Traffic Controller. He served almost 6 years in the RAF, 9 months of that time being in Oman in the Middle East.
After leaving the RAF he settled in Manchester, England and worked in a chemical factory for a few years before becoming a police officer in Manchester.
In 1977 he and his wife Anne and daughter Anne-Marie emigrated to Canada where he became a police officer in Toronto. He and his family settled in Oshawa where daughter Sarah was born. The family moved to Whitby in 1985.
Whilst with the Toronto Police, Colin took courses in his spare time and became a licensed Real Estate Agent in 1988, working in the business on his days off from the police. In 2001 he retired from the police and concentrated on real estate full time building up a list of satisfied clients with whom he still keeps in touch.
Colin is an active member and past president, 2019, of the Oshawa & District Shrine Club.
