Colin Dennis Brett
Colin Dennis Brett passed away peacefully at home on July 12, 2022.
He was born December 9, 1934, in Durban, South Africa. His four siblings, Peter, Gillian, Patricia and Denise preceded him in death. He spent his childhood in government boarding schools, having lost his father at the age of 6. He loved swimming, scuba diving, sailing, playing field hockey, fishing, bee keeping, and had his pilot’s license. He married his best friend and sweetheart, Kitty Mackenzie, on December 7, 1957. They belonged to the same field hockey club. He started out in the telecommunication field in South Africa, transitioning to computers after immigrating to Canada with his family in 1981.
He built up a family computer business along with his wife, Kitty, and son, Ian. It was a true family business, employing at various times all their other children and various in-laws, along with other employees.
Colin has battled heart disease for 3 decades. Our thanks to his doctors at Four oaks Medical (in particular Dr Dalzell) and the Fraser Health Care team, that allowed his death to be both at home and peaceful.
He is survived by his wife, Kitty (of Langley, BC), and his children: Ian and wife Ina (of Vancouver, BC), Alan (of Langley, BC), Rosemary and husband Tom (of Tampa, Florida) and Colin and partner Victoria (of Harrison Hot Springs, BC), and his grandchildren: David, Amalia, Jonathan (predeceased), Jordan, Benjamin, Alec (& Sarah), Jonas, Logan and Carissa.
He was a loving husband, father and grandfather, and will be sadly missed. We are rejoicing in the knowledge that he is with his Heavenly Father, and we will be reunited with him one day.
