Colin J Angliker (died on August 29 2018, aged 80)


Notification from Mark Reid MB FRCP; further details can be found on Seaver-Brown Funeral Service & Crematory website.


Colin J Angliker (Hank), who was born September 5, 1937 to Mary and Hans Angliker, died at Bristol Regional Medical Center in Wytheville, Virginia, USA on Wednesday August 29 2018, after a brief illness.


Educated at Methodist College Belfast until 1956, Colin studied medicine at Queen’s University, qualifying with an MB BCh BAO in 1962. During his time as a student he was awarded a Blue in swimming, and was always keen to show this by wearing his Blues tie. 


Following his Houseman's year at Belfast City Hospital, Colin left for Canada to complete a four year residency in Psychiatry at McGill University in Montreal. From 1967 he worked in the field of Forensic and Correctional Psychiatry. He moved to the United States in 1977 and held positions at Yale, in Louisiana and in Virginia as an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Virginia.


From 1988, he was Director and Chief Psychiatrist at the Marion Correctional Treatment Centre, a psychiatric prison hospital. He remained at Marion for 30 years before working in the Southwestern Virginia Mental Health Inst. until his retirement in 2017.


Colin was a regular attendee at Queen’s alumni events in New York, a member of the Queen’s East Coast graduate association and a donor to a number of projects at Queen's University Belfast.


Fortunately, on his last visit to Northern Ireland, Colin was able to attend a Class of 62 Reunion in May of this year in Newcastle, Co Down, where he spent time reminiscing with old friends and colleagues before returning to the States.


Colin is survived by his wife Sarah Nash Angliker and by his four daughters Susan, Kim, Nikki and Keri with his first wife and their mother Barbara Angliker Brennan. He also leaves ten grandchildren. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren and his extended family, and kept in close touch with them throughout his life in North America.
