Owen Francis Colquhoun, known by friends and loved ones as “Iain”, 85 years old of Simmons Lake Wantage, NJ left this Earth Tuesday April 30, 2019 after suffering years of many illnesses.

He immigrated to the United States during World War II in 1941with his mother and brother, sailing across the Atlantic in a convoy on the Cameronia. He lived most of his life in Northern New Jersey, with a short period of time spent in the San Franscisco Bay Area of California. He had a beautiful voice and enjoyed singing for friends and families at gatherings. A Jack-of-All-Trades with interesting jobs in many different careers, mechanic at General Motors, teacher at Lincoln Technical Institute, Director of Sales and Marketing with Mosler and a mechanics teacher with Job Corp, a job he found very rewarding, giving inner city youth trade skills to better their lives. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War. He was a private pilot with an IFR rating, he loved his airplane and all things related to aviation. He enjoyed many a day at Sussex Airport flying his plane and catching up with fellow pilots for over 30 years of his life. He worked overseas in Greenland for the US Government on two tours in 1964 and 1967 working on the Radar Stations on the Polar Ice Cap.

He is survived by his wife Sara Colquhoun, his son Mark Colquhoun, and daughters Laura Colquhoun-Kienle, Olga Colquhoun, Victoria Marie Colquhoun, and Elizabeth Boyd (née Colquhoun), 11 grandsons and 5 great grandsons. His grandson, Evan Colquhoun, has followed in his aviation footsteps taking it to the next level as a commercial airline pilot, he is a Captain for Delta Airlines, which made his grandfather very proud.
