Colin, where do we start? You were the cheekiest chap at Anchor, always had the biggest grin on your face. If you weren’t talking about Rugby then it was Football, if it wasn’t the Footy’ it was a watches. We could go on…

A true gentleman, a presence around the place. Held records and beat his own for the number of sales made in one month. Much to his colleague’s dismay!

Never a bad word spoken about you Colin, ok, maybe sometimes in jest.

Here are a few words from your colleagues, may your Rest in Peace Colin, you will be sorely missed.

Graham Joyce, CEO “Very upset to hear about Colin – it was a pleasure to work with him and to have his support as both a friend and colleague over so many years. All at Anchor will remember him with affection and he will be much missed. Now at peace. Graham.”

Simon Joyce, Managing Director “I have worked with Colin for well over a decade and his absence has left a hole in the business that can not be filled. Colin was an old school gentleman. His honesty and hard work combined to make him an exceptional salesperson with fabulous repeat customers. He is sorely missed both on a personal and professional level.”

Greg Joyce, Director “Colin will be sorely missed, a genuine and honourable, much-loved man and an integral member of the team. Colin shall be remembered with a tear in our eye, yet a smile on our face. RIP Colin Pritchard, you shall be forever in our thoughts.”
