The Colin Craig day is in memory of Colin who was originally from Preston but had lived happily in Devon with his family for several years. He was proud of his roots but his career in the Royal Marines soon meant he was to move away from Lancashire. Later on in life he settled down in the West Country and had a successful career as a Paramedic. Boxing was Colin’s first love as a sport and he was always glad to pass on his skills and experience in a way of giving something back to the sport. He would have made an excellent Lifeboat Crewman. In August 2010 Colin sadly passed away after a battle with cancer leaving his wife Lisa and four children Henry, Jessica, Thomas and George.
