United Kingdom citizen who died in the terrorist attacks in America on 11 September 2001.

Colin Richard McArthur was born on 24 June 1949 in Glasgow, Scotland, the youngest of four children. He began attending the University of Glasgow in 1967, studying geology and physics, but left without graduating. He taught for a while before choosing a career in insurance. In 1977, this new career took him first to Toronto, Canada, where he met and married Brenda and then in 1986, the couple moved to Montreal, Canada. Colin became a Canadian citizen but he maintained a dual British and Canadian citizenship. In 1989, Colin, a meticulous person who liked to complete any project he started, returned to Glasgow and passed the physics examination required to complete his degree. Colin and Brenda moved to Howell, New Jersey, USA in 1997 where they both worked for the insurance company Aon Corporation.

Brenda left Aon in 2000 and he was to become a vice president of the company. He was working in his office on the 104th Floor of the South Tower, 2 World Trade Centre, Manhattan, New York, USA when he died, aged 52 years, on 11 September 2001.
