Colin J. Davies of Spring Mills, passed from this life on November 10, 2017.  He was 32.  Born October 28, 1985 in Covington, LA, Colin was a son of Rodney W. and Mary E. (Bell) Davies of Boston, MA.  He was a 2004 graduate of Kennett High School in Kennett Square.  He went on to attend Bucknell University in Lewisburg where he attained his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering.  Colin was employed as a Project Engineer for Glenn O. Hawbaker in State College.  On June 8, 2013, Colin married Whitney N. Crater who survives. 

Colin absolutely loved the outdoors and nature.  He was an avid hiker, going on a week-long backpacking trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks with his longtime friend Mark in 2008.  During his sophomore through senior years in school, he volunteered with the Kennett Square Fire Company.  He enjoyed mountain biking, hunting, weightlifting, and running with Bentley, his beloved canine friend and walking in the woods with Whitney and Bentley. Colin also enjoyed restoring and rebuilding cars with his friends.  Anything to do with building and designing interested him. 

In addition to his parents and wife, Colin is survived by two sisters; his twin sister, Emma Davies of Boston, MA and Sarah Davies (John) of Walla Walla, WA; one brother; Gareth Davies (Chelsea) of North Hampton, NH, and three best friends, Mark McCormick, Kyle Stauffer and Craig Stoddard.
