Hitchcock colt

BRUNSWICK – Colt Hitchcock died Monday, April 18, 2022 at his home in Brunswick. He was 70 years old.

He was born on January 31, 1952 in New York, NY. He grew up in Cape Elizabeth with his mother, Mary Payson Hitchcock, his father, Frederick Colton Hitchcock II, and his sister, Sarah Hitchcock. Throughout his childhood, he spent his summers on Cushings Island in Casco Bay, stirring up trouble. He attended many private schools in New England – some he left voluntarily, some he did not. Colt was proud of this fact and bragged about his delinquency throughout his adulthood.

He attended college at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill for a year, where he played college football. He dropped out of school for a while and worked on a tour boat in Bali, Indonesia, and would talk about his adventures there for years. Upon his return to the United States, Colt attended Babson University, where he earned a business degree. After college he continued to travel – while employed by Xerox he traveled and spoke internationally.

In 1990 he met Andrea Najarian, whom he married in 1991. He had his first daughter, Tess, in 1992. His second daughter, Leah, was born in 1994. He loved being a father. He coached both girls basketball throughout their elementary and middle school years. He had a great reading voice and read to his daughters throughout their childhood (at one point he had Hop on Pop memorized from cover to cover). He would read The Night Before Christmas to his family every year on Christmas Eve.

Think you like New England sports? You are no match for the Colt Hitchcock. He watched every Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins game with an obsession. When he commented on the game, professional commentators echoed him seconds later. His knowledge of the sport was unmatched. He was also an avid golfer and a member of the Brunswick Golf Club, where he was loved.

After his retirement, Colt truly integrated into the Brunswick community. When he was not golfing, Colt regularly volunteered at Gathering Place in Brunswick and eventually became a volunteer leader there. Colt never stopped learning – he loved auditing classes at Bowdoin College, even taking an art history class at the request of his eldest daughter. Colt was a “Friend of Bill W” and took pride in supporting the community by leading meetings and sponsoring other members.

Colt was quick to crack a joke, very comfortable being the center of attention, yet still approachable. He will be truly missed.

He is survived by two daughters, Leah Hitchcock of South Portland and Tess Hitchcock of Florence, Italy; sister, Sarah Hitchcock of Marblehead, Mass.; and two nephews, Wheeler Law of Chicago Ill., and Peirce Law of Marblehead Mass.

A service will be held on Saturday, April 30 at 2 p.m. at Berean Baptist Church in Brunswick.
