Chad M Collins
August 22, 1973 ~ September 12, 2023 (age 50) 50 Years Old
Chad Michael Collins, born on August 22, 1973, in Xenia, Ohio, left us on September 12, 2023, surrounded by the love and memories of his family and friends.
Chad was a man of many talents and a heart filled with warmth and generosity. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Michael Collins, as a true jack of all trades, excelling particularly in the realm of mechanics. His hands were skilled, and his passion lay in the restoration and maintenance of classic cars, with his cherished 1957 Chevy Bel Air being a testament to his craftsmanship and love for vintage automobiles.
Chad had a sweet tooth that could rival anyone's, a testament to his love for the simple pleasures in life. But his heart was even larger than his appetite for sweets. He was known for his honesty, kindness, and unwaveringly strong will. He approached life with a strong mind and a commitment to doing his best in all he undertook.
Chad's love for family was palpable. He recently delighted in discovering and presenting a go-cart to his beloved nephew, Dakota Collins, showcasing his affection and desire to create lasting memories with his family. He had exciting plans for his future, including a new job and cherished moments spent with those he held dear.
Chad Michael Collins will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His memory will live on in the classic cars he lovingly restored, the sweet treats he enjoyed, and the love and warmth he shared with his family and friends.
Chad is preceded in death by his grandfather Richard Collins; grandmother, Marjorie Taylor; step-grandfather, Oscar Taylor; grandfather, Wayne Fowler; uncles, Rick and John Collins; and Glen Fowler.
He is survived by his father, Michael Collins; mother, Sue Ivan; stepmother, Charlotte Collins; sister, Jessica Collins; nephew, Dakota Collins; aunt, Darlene Fowler; uncle, Ed Collins; grandmother, Pauline Fowler; and girlfriend, Lisa Alderman.
May he rest in eternal peace surrounded by the love and light he brought into our lives.
