Edward has earned his wings. He answered the call on Sunday, August 29, 2021 in Trenton, New Jersey and took his final flight home. As a result, our hearts are less bright, but we know the heavens are filled with extra doses of love, joy, peace and laughter.
Edward Charles Collins, born December 14, 1951 in Virginia to Maggie and George Collins.
He was educated in the Columbus public school system. He was employed at Notre Dame High School and the Occupational Training Center as a custodian.
In his leisure time, Edward enjoyed drawing, building doll houses, and building ferris wheels out of hangers. He was a faithful member of Church of Christ. He loved going to church and serving the Lord. Uncle Eddie was a very humble man arid he will be truly missed.
