*Posting on behalf of my father and Colins older brother Alan Pendlebury (Candles)
My first car was a 1926 Morris Cowley that had a crank handle to start (No starter motor)
On cold mornings it would not kick over and Colin would give me a push down to the Heyfield Butter Factory to roll start it. I would then give him a ride to the Bush Stop to go to school.
While we were living in Churchill, I got a job carting logs out the back of Licola and would stay at the Mums place. I had a FC Holden and ran into something putting a hole in the radiator.
I had a spare in Churchill and Colin’s Valiant was out of service, so he took me to pick it up on his motorbike. We placed the radiator between us on the motorbike on the return trip.
*Colin did tell me this story also and mentioned it was the quickest trip to Churchill that he had ever done and recent feedback from Raelene mentioned a few stops to quench their thirst were involved
*My early memories of my Uncle would be going fishing when I stayed at Nana & Pops during the school holidays. He loved his fishing, and I enjoyed our time together even if we did not catch any fish
Also remember going to the wood yard with him and loading up the trailer with hardwood offcuts for firewood for the family home. On one occasion I remember this turned into a full afternoon task with friends, music and drinks.
Having an Uncle who was a local Taxi Driver had its benefits. He always looked out for me, my family, and our children when we were out and would go out of his way to make sure we got home safely after a night out.
Colins Collections – During my years of travel with sport and work, Colin would ask if I could grab him a stubbie holder and key ring wherever I went.
He had a huge collection of these and as I travelled a fair bit, I would end up just getting them for him without asking. I enjoyed doing this for him.
*Of all his collections his most treasured would be his immediate family, Raeleen, Paul and Helen, Lee & Craig and his 4 grandchildren.*
Colin was one in a million and would go out of his way to help you out when he could, he will be sadly missed by his Family and Friends.
Rest in Peace Uncle
Love Duane, Michelle, and Family.February 15, 2021
