Tribute

Dean Colston

On December 3rd, 2023, Dean Colston was suddenly taken from us with a massive heart attack at the age of 58. Dean was a lifelong Rock and Roll musician and played his beloved drums from an early age until his untimely death.

He was a hard-working landscaper for most of his adult life. Unbelievably, his mother, Marlene, whom he loved dearly, passed away eleven days later. He will be sorely missed by his father Rick, sister Cindy, Uncle Dale, Aunt Angelita, and numerous musical friends.

Dean was born in Vancouver, BC on October 24, 1965.

His favourite band for many years was “KISS” and Dean adopted the drummer’s name of Chris for many years. He was a drummer in a few different rock and roll bands including Ancient Ruins, Thief, Alter Boys and Gun Shy and often wrote some of the music. They toured BC, Yukon, and Alberta. He continued to play recreationally at his residence, sometimes with his musician friends Vince, and Anthony.

A Celebration of Life for Dean, and his mother Marlene, will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at 12:00 noon in The Fireside Room at Cascade Community Church (The Salvation Army) 35190 Delair Road, Abbotsford. A light lunch will be provided, following the service.

In lieu of flowers please donate to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
