Colin Jackson - Year Entered 1968

Colin Jackson

From Greg Albrecht 


For those who might remember, one of our fellow students in Bricket Wood just emailed us this morning informing us that another Australian classmate in Bricket Wood named Colin Jackson just passed away.  Colin was about my age as I recall -- 72 -- reports are that he passed unexpectedly.  He leaves his wife Penny (Banham) Jackson and three daughters, whom I presume as in their late 30s, 40s.



From Bob Gerringer

Colin Jackson died on Feb. 8, 2020.  Our website shows he started in Pasadena in 1968.  He transferred to Pasadena for his senior year, having spent his first three years in BW, starting in 1965.  I knew him well my sophomore year, and have fond memories of a jovial bloke from down-under.  I'm not sure why we got to know each other; perhaps we were in the same Ambassador Club.  After his graduation in Pasadena in June, 1969, he married Penny Banham, who graduated that same year in Bricket Wood...........bob

Dear friends from the classes of '65, '66, and '67,

Sadly yesterday I saw a Facebook post from a daughter of Penny (nee Banham) and Colin Jackson, announcing that Colin had died suddenly on Saturday, in their home town of Devonport Tasmania. I have no more details at this time.

Colin was born in England but the family migrated to Melbourne. The tone of the posting suggested it was unexpected, but I'm not sure on that. They were visiting his parents up in Brisbane just last year and we had coffee and cake and chatted for a few hours.  And he looked his amazingly robust self.

If I hear more, I will pass it on.

Dear members of BW classes '65 & ''66 & '67,

You should have received my previous email regarding the untimely death of Colin Jackson this last Saturday.  He is survived by his wife Penny and their three daughters.

Should you wish to express your condolences, Sally Jackson has set up a page on her Facebook, which is linked to Col and Penny's Facebook page as well.  There are a large number of comments there already and feel free to add yours.

So if have Facebook, search for Sally Jackson.  Should there be too many to choose from, search for me first, and look at my FB "friends", and search for Colin Jackson, and you will see the initial post about his sudden death.

If you sworn never to have anything to do with Facebook, just send your comment to me via email and I'll get it there somehow.
