Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
On behalf of Hartland Institute, I am deeply saddened to share the news that our beloved Dr. Colin Standish passed peacefully to his rest on October 29, 2018. Dr. Colin Standish was the founding president of our institution, serving in this position from 1983 until 2011. Before that he served as academic dean of Weimar College, president of Columbia Union College, and president of West Indies College.
He was an educator, minister of the gospel, leader, defender of the faith, and personal friend to thousands. His life was dedicated to self-sacrificing service to others. His greatest passion was to share the everlasting gospel to all nations, tongues, and peoples. He was kind and compassionate, and was always seeking opportunities to share the Adventist message with everyone he met. Even though he is now at rest, waiting for the resurrection day at Christ’s second coming, his legacy will live on, inspiring many to live a godly life.
There will be a memorial service on November 18 at 1:00 PM at the Conference Center at Hartland Institute. Friends and family are respectfully invited to attend.
In His service,
President of Hartland Institute
