Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Norwood(2021)

It is with a heavy heart that Cheryll announces that her beloved husband, Colin Norwood, passed away at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Friday, February 5, 2021, at the age of 67 years. Along with Cheryll, left to mourn Colin’s passing are his children, Lauren de Graaf and Melanie (Derek) Hagens; granddaughters, Kayla ‘Bug’, Brianne ‘Cheese’ and Lily ‘Princess Wienie’; siblings, Anne, Charlene (Uwe) and Janette (Carlos) as well as his fur babies, Lili, Jesse, Babs and Smokey. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Isobel Norwood. Colin, also affectionately known as ‘Shakey’ or ‘Twitch’, was a friend to many and was an animal lover at heart. He loved his Harley Davidson and when he wasn’t riding on the open road, he could be found watching Jeopardy or hockey. Being married to Cheryll for 36 years showed how loyal he was... this was a trait that Colin took very seriously. His quick wit and readiness with a joke or a story to make people laugh will forever be missed. Colin will be silently remembered by family and friends without the proceedings of a formal funeral service.

    I am sorry to hear this news, although it has been 30 plus years since I saw you two, I will always remember fondly the time we spent at ETS, the parties we attended and when you two moved out by me on the acreage by Cooking Lake. Colin was one of the best. You are in my thoughts.

    Cheryl. I was saddened to hear of Colin's passing. Working with Colin was always entertaining and educational. He had extensive experience of the job along with a vast repertoire of jokes, comments and sarcasm. He will be missed by many oil and gas firefighters and consultants alike. Please accept our condolences to you and your family.
