ColinSEXSTONEBeloved Father, husband, brother, grandfather & uncle died peacefully at home 24th February. A loyal Bristolian, who cherished his city as much as his family.

On retiring from the RAF he joined GCCC as Chief Executive. During his five year tenure, Gloucestershire went onto win 5 trophies, as well as the one day, Norwich Union National League in 2000. Colin joined Bristol City as Chief Executive in 2001, helping to lead the club's stadium development and reaching 2 Championship playoff finals.

He thereafter accepted a role as a Non-executive Director at League Two club Plymouth Argyle, and finally in 2015 as a director of fellow league 2 club Bristol Rovers However, the legacy of which he was most proud was his family, he loved nothing more than watching his 8 grandchildren in their various sporting endeavours Colin leaves his wife Jane, 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 1 sister. The funeral will be held on March 16th, 2pm in Westbury-on-trym Holy Trinity Church, followed by RAFA club from 3pm.

He was a lovely man. I shall never forget our squash days whilst serving with him in the RAF.
RIP Colin.
