(Relative)

Colin was born in Prestwick, Scotland. When he was 24 he emigrated to Canada to begin a new life. His wife Mary followed him a year later. He was a hardworking family man. He had his own cartage company that he built from the ground up. He also built his home from scratch with his own two hands, digging out the basement himself using a horse and cart to remove the soil. He worked at his business and lived in that home until the day his life on earth ended.
