Wow.....just heart breaking.

Best wheeling trip to date was the R&V's I attended in his honor and to fight cancer...

My prayers go out to his family and friends. He will be sorely missed!!!!!!!!!!!

R.I.P. - such a sad event for him and his family to go through.

My thoughts are with his family, hope they are able to to find a way to live happy knowing they had such a good person along side them for the time he was here.
Makes me want to give my kids a big hug.

I've never met Collin, just knew him through GL4x4, but he always seemed like a great guy. My condolences go out to his family. Cancer is a mother f'er, we lost my grandmother & my wife's grandmother to it.

As I sit here in my office crying, It is a little better knowing that you are not in pain anymore, your fight is over, For those that have spoke to you, you will live on in their stories, memories and for your fight and battle, for those that have never spoke to you, you will live on with your online battle with cancer, each and everyone of us that have followed your battle have become a better person for knowing you, talking to you, or even chatting with you, when I was told I had cancer you where the first one to offer your help and story, I thank you for that, our sons are the same age and love four wheeling just as much if not more then us. When times are tuff I will always remember just relax its not that bad......RIP COLLIN....Just remeeber in heaven sometime you have to point it and pin it, and make sure to let it eat.....

RIP Collin
I was just last night thinking of when he used to be in chat talking about how much he loved his wife and boy before he was even diagnosed and how much I respected him. When I met him I had already talked to him so many times but he was even more awesome in person. His wife and son are awesome too.
This whole fight he endured has really made me realize how much I cared for him and how lucky I am to have known him. It has also made me realize how much even though we (Gl4x4) are sometimes like a pack of braty siblings, and even if we fight, how much I care about you all.
I haven't been this sad in a long long time. It is very painful to have such a large extended family of sorts when things like this happen, but I wouldn't trade you guys for the world.

It has been great to know such a great young man. From having the opportunity to wheel his 30 acre off road park seeing him at clean-ups and the 56th Ave road restoration project and recently cooking the wieners for our forest clean up. Collen was definitely an asset to society who will be greatly missed by those who have had the opportunity to meet him and those who hadn't had the chance to meet him but know him through his postings on here. RIP

I had first met Collin back when he started Sand n Swamp off road club. Although I was not able to make all of the wheeling adventures, I was able to make most of the meetings. What a great group of people to share the trails with. Too soon after Collin had started the club, interest wained and I slowing lost touch with everyone involved. Sadly, especially now, I had lost touch with Collin.

In my ignorance I had never put two and two together. Fullsize4life and Collin. I had been following the Chemo thread from time to time. It never even dawned on me who I was reading about. Quietly in front of my computer screen I sympathized with what was being shared. The feelings all to familiar with what I have experienced with members of my family.

Only now do I realize who we have lost.

Collin, you will be missed brother. The good works, great times and memories that you leave behind will not be forgotten.
