Collins, Frank Jacob

May 8, 1937 – June 9, 2012
at the age of 75 years

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Frank Jacob Collins on June 9, 2012.  He was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA.  He spent his youth in the South West USA and after spending time in Alaska Frank settled in Kamloops. 53 years later he passed away peacefully at the Royal Inland Hospital.

He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Carole “CC”, his son Andrew Collins of Blackfalds, AB and daughter Coni (Gord) Eby of Fort St. John, BC.  He will also be missed by his grandchildren Brandi (Clint) Martin, Stevi, Timbre and Lee; also,  his two cats, Jerry and Clyde will be lost without him!

When Frank wasn’t working as a mechanic, he and Carole enjoyed camping and fishing in the interior of BC and travelling thru the States.

At Frank’s request there will be no formal service.

Special heartfelt thanks are extended to family and friends for their help, care, support and flowers.  Also to the staff of Royal Inland Hospital, Ponderosa Day Care, Interior Health Services and especially to Dr R. Thomasse for his diligence and care, as well as Fischer’s Funeral Services for their help and compassion during this trying time.
