Taken from a press release, an invitation from Colin’s family to celebrate the life of the recently passed Mr Vearncombe / Black….
‘Singer and songwriter Colin Vearncombe (aka Black) who died on 26th January following a car accident, will be remembered at a public Memorial Service in Liverpool where he grew up, at 7pm on Friday 19th February at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, St James Mt, Liverpool, L1 7AZ. Hundreds of friends, acquaintances and music fans have expressed a desire to come together to celebrate Colin’s life and everyone is warmly welcome to join Colin’s family to give him one last wonderful send off.
This is a public event and a large number of people are expected to attend from around the world.
Colin is survived by sons Max, Marius, and Milan, wife Camilla, brothers David and Rick, father Alan and mother Silvia, who ask that it be family flowers only. Those who wish may make a donation in Colin’s memory to one of two chosen charities:
Bru Columbanus – a facility that provides ‘home from home’ accommodation to relatives of seriously ill patients in Cork Hospitals and has been a haven for Colin’s family in the past few weeks’.
