When I first really got to meet Theo, I thought he was a genius.. some sort of eccentric Genius and that is exactly who he was. I never had more fun than talking with him about theories and yet still make stupid laughable jokes in between.

Miss you dude, miss you a lot and the world turns a little duller

Theo. Your kind and upbeat soul will always be preserved at the farm where we both found our first real home. It was a honor meeting you and I will cherish all the memories we made. Rest in peace and Bryce stay strong

I met collin back in 1990. We bonded over our love of games. It was always a pleasure visiting and chatting with him. We could go on for hours with theories and concepts of mechanisms on how games should be run.

I will miss you my friend

I met Collin through a friend in Winnipeg when he was in the news for fighting against hospital pay parking, something I have found frustrating & infuriating for years. We chatted when he moved to BC & I am so sorry I never got the opportunity to meet him in person. He was funny, brilliant & had a very kind heart. You will be missed forever, Collin.

I meant Theo in about 2008 when he Karen and the boys moved in next-door to us in Abercorn grove. they quickly became good friends and cherished neighbours and we shared many happy times together. I remember Theo and I sitting in my backyard until son up Monday when we talked about all the things that mattered to us I also remember my last visit with Theo and going with him and Bryce for Chinese food in Winnipeg. It was a special time and I had hoped that we might have more special times and now they must say farewell and command his care to the giver of life. Blessings to you all and now the memories are cherished by many

I first met Collin way way back when here and Ken were living on Barber Avenue here in Winnipeg I would say it was circa 1986, we quickly became friends and stayed friends it took Cancer to end our friendship, I have so many memorys with Theo I could write a series of novels and still have tons left over, I miss him so much he fought hard and I only wish he beat it, I remember our last chat on facebook shortly before he left us and to be honest I balled my eyes out, I still cry every day about his passing. His life was so busy I am glad He is survived by his son Bryce. He honestly was an amazing person and I still am honored to have been his friend!!
