Collin J. Mackay, age 27, of Fairfield, passed away Monday, January 11, 2021. Born in Hartford, Collin is the loving son of Stephen and Catherine (Dube) Mackay and cherished brother of Kayla Mackay. His altruism, selflessness, and kindness was treasured by all. As a teenager he spent summers participating in Greenfield Hill Congregational Church's Appalachia Service Project, helping build homes for those in need. As a creative builder, Collin ultimately found his passion working at ODR Studios in Newark, NJ as Chief Fabricator on a major fashion collaboration. Collin loved being outdoors, whether it be hiking, fishing off Saugatuck Island, or playing golf with his father and friends. A true people person, Collin had a unique ability to live an entirely ego-free life, building a joyous connection with anyone who crossed his path. His upbeat personality and love of life will be sadly missed. Survivors in addition to his parents and sister include his maternal grandfather, Norman Dube of Norwalk; an uncle, John Mackay and his wife Marybeth of Newport, RI; two aunts, Lisa Dube Forman and her husband Bob of Lake Placid, NY and Jeanette Dube of Chatham, NJ; and several cousins. He was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Robertson and Nancy Mackay and maternal grandmother, Bernice Dube.
