Hi.. I knew colin terrence blackmore from the age of 10 till i was 17 so sometime between 1987 - 1994, in that time.. he was a milkman lived in luggershall, close to andover hants. I worked under him and my friend steve green. I believe he has a brother named Peter that lived in devon or cornwall at the time.. I spent many summers and weekends working with Colin and Steve, have incredible memories.. he was the closest thing I had to a father.. as i never had a dad around in my teen years.. Colin Blackmore was the most generous, kind hearted, humourous, person I have ever met.. I was in portsmouth when i heard of his death.. before i could arrnage to be at his funeral it was over.. i was notifed to late.. i kick myself.. as i saw him the week before he died.. actually cut his hair lol... he used to let anyone do it... have some funny stories of that.. I miss that old guy so much.. he was the closest thing I had to a father figure in my life at a time i need one.. I only wish he was still around he would be in his 60's now if he was still alive.. he passed away, in the night at his flat in luggershall, and his lodger found him the next morning.. he had knumonia.. and was about to go see the doctor the next day.. I wish i could have been at his funeral.. I never forget him saying to me 4 years previous to his death, in a car ride to his home. he said " JOn, when i die, will you cry?" I said " of course colin " he replied " dont, Throw a party!!!!, i want people to laugh and have a big ol party, as im finally at peace" who would know years later he would die.. i have cried many a time. after that.. im sure he would have kicked me for saying that.. but.. hey.. he was a good guy.. sorely sorely missed!... my only other regret is that I have no PHOTOS of him... i would have loved to showmy wife and kids now.. who i looked up to.. when i was a kid.. ... i would really like to make contact with any relative or family member that either knows of colin blackmore, his middle name was terence. He had a brother i beleive was called PETER, he was living in devon, or cornwall.. not sure if hes out there.. if you read this please please please... contact me at jmills2@cogeco.ca i would love to make contact.. and chat with you maybe even somehow get a photo from you if you have 1... of colin.. and know where he is buried i beleive he was cremated,.. so i cant even go an pay my respects... and i so badly want to do that.. I live now in canadaa, i used to live in andover hants... but please contact me email

jmills2@cogeco.ca and i will get in contact and make a trip to the uk, as i still have family there...

if anyone knows of colin terrence blackmore who was a milkman for many years and lived in luggershall near andover hants, please contact me... i would be forever endebted....
