Obituary

Colin John Flett 4th (CJ) No. 4 as his grandfather called him. CJ to the rest of us. Colin died suddenly at his home Saturday, February 15th at the age of 33. Born December 13th, 1986 to proud parents Colin and Karen Flett (Sliede). Brother to Lauren Malafarina (Phil) and Anton Flett (Amy Gravelle) and uncle to Julianna, Elena, Giuseppe and Finlay. Grandson to Colin and Isabel Flett (both deceased) and to John Sliede (deceased) and Irene Sliede (mummu) and leaving behind his closest cousin Mackenzie Marshall. Nephew to Jo-Anne Marshall, Margaret Flett (Eric Shelswell) and Brian Sliede (Kim). Colin lived his entire life in Sudbury attending schools at Arthur Robinson, McLeod, Lockerby and finishing high school at Sudbury Secondary. Growing up, Colin was a lifelong SPHL hockey player, playing for mostly Robinson Playground. In his final years, Colin struggled with depression and anxiety leading to substance abuse. Colin was a kind and companionate individual and an engaging conversationalist with an infectious joking nature that made everyone laugh. Fishing off the dock and working outside at his parent’s house and camp was his greatest enjoyment. To the health care professionals and Greater Sudbury Police that took an interest in his situation throughout the years, it is deeply appreciated by the family. Especially to Herman Riech. Colin taught his parents there is a part of society that have their own personal problems and who therefore shouldn’t be judged negatively. Instead, visualize walking in their shoes and extend empathy, support and tolerance toward them. Visitation will be held at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury 2-4pm and 6-8pm Thursday February 27th, 2020 with a short eulogy to Colin at 7:00pm Colin will always be mom and dad’s little boy hugging us before bedtime and saying, “I love you bigger than a house, I love you bigger than a mountain, I love you bigger than the universe, but I love you more than that.”

My condolences to all of you from one who knew and loved your CJ. He was a kind gentle person....very sensitive and caring. He tried hard with your help to overcome many challenges. My father left us early also at 33 years of age. I have little to remember there but I hold on to the good memories of my mom who lost her battle at age 63. Both had similar circumstances as CJ. I hope you can all hold on to the fond memories that you shared with CJ now as we have.

My heartfelt sympathies to CJ's family. Despite your heartbreaking loss, we should all be grateful & thankful for your courage as a family in sharing CJ's struggles with us. Too many families try to bury the circumstances of situations like his & I believe that without dialogue & sharing experiences like yours we cannot move forward to find solutions. Many in our community have no idea how many people of all ages suffer from addictions & mental illness nor often how close to home it can be. Hopefully we can all learn from stories like yours & fight these demons. May God grant you the peace you so deserve. I know you will treasure your son/brother/grandson forever, as he so deserves. Take Care. Vicki Thurlow (former co-worker of Karen).

Our deepest sympathies to you Colin and Karen. We cannot know the depth of the struggles that our children go through, all we can do is be there for them, as you were for him. In that, you served him as best you could. He is without those struggles now. Perhaps that can be a starting point for remembering all the good days. Our hearts and love go out to you both and your families who all are dealing with your loss.
