A funeral for Colin Hill will be held next Wednesday.

Funeral planned for slain Surrey realtor

Colin Hill was gunned down at his home on July 12 when he confronted a burglar

A funeral has been scheduled for a popular realtor who was gunned down at his Cloverdale home during an attempted break in.

The family of Colin Hill announced on Facebook there will be a service at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre on Wednesday (July 22).

On July 12, Hill confronted a 22-year-old man trying to break into his home in the 16500-block of 64 Avenue just before midnight. During the confrontation, the suspect shot and killed the 42-year-old. The attacker then fled in a stolen vehicle.

Hours later in Burnaby, RCMP were called to reports of a man brandishing a gun in an apartment complex and arrested Surrey’s Khouri Lamar Green, who police believe was involved in Hill’s shooting.

Green has been charged with second-degree murder. His next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 14.

In a Facebook post, Hill’s wife Becky Zhou said he led the would-be robber outside to give the family time to hide.

“Colin is the best real estate agent, very protective father (and) very best husband a person could ever ask for,” she wrote.

On July 22, there will be a viewing at noon, a service at 1 p.m. and burial at 2 p.m. Victory Memorial is at 14831 28 Ave.
