Leslie "Les" Colin WINES

26/07/1954 – 27/09/2020

Peacefully at his home, Bushfield.

Dearly loved husband of Pam, caring, proud, wise, calming, hands on Dad to Rick & Tara, Courtney and Matt.

Always my rock, suddenly left us after his challenges with cancer over 7 years, his big heart now resting – Pam

In lieu of flowers as a memorial to Les planting a native tree would be a thoughtful gesture or donations to Peters’ Project would be appreciated.

Private funeral due to attendance restrictions

The Service recording will be available from 2.30p.m. on THURSDAY (October 1) it can be viewed on the ‘Streaming’ section at

  3. To my wonderful godmother Pam and Rick, Courtney and family. What a beautiful service – you all spoke so beautifully for your fun-loving, caring husband and father. I will always remember Les for his dry-one-liners, his love of the Carlton Football Club, and his delight in having a couple of frothies. Our thoughts are with you and I am confident that you will continue Les’s legacy and make him so proud. Sending our love to you all from the West. I hope we can catch up soon and reminisce about the good old days. Love you all from Kellie, Rob, Jessica and Isabella xx
