CMDR Collin Cooper RN (Rtd)
To the family of Commander Colin Cooper, RN. May God comfort you in your grief and in this time of great loss. "When you pass through deep waters I will be with you" (The book of Isaiah, chapter 43 verse 2). I did not serve with Colin, rather we served in succession. I remember Colin as a very professional man, full of integrity with a great sense of dry humour, who loved and honoured his family. My life is the richer for having known Colin.

A true gentleman who loved taking time to teach and impart his experience on the newcomers to not only submarines but the ways of the world in project land. Despite his high pressure role on Collins he always had/made time for us. Loved his rugby and loved his hockey. RIP.CMDR Marcos Alfonso RAN (Rtd)

very sorry to hear of Colin's passing. He was one of the good ones. One of those
who die too soon.
Our condolences to his wife and family.
Mr David Elliston
The SAA NSW was truly saddened to learn of Colin's passing and on behalf of the Association I would like to express our sincere sadness and sympathies to the family at this difficult time. I personally knew Colin whilst working with Thales and negotiating contracts for the support of the Collins submarine program. He was a thorough gentleman and a pleasure to work with.
