Mitchell Lee Charles Collins, 31

Mitchell Lee Charles Collins passed away Thursday, July 13, 2017.

Mitch, God blessed our family and the world Oct. 9, 1985, when you were born. The years of outdoor sports activities and 10 years of playing ice hockey, you learned enthusiasm and gave us excitement. While parenting two Siberian huskies, Dixie and Titian, you learned empathy. Mitch, you lived life with energy and passion. You were a loving son to your father and I, a best friend to your sister Christine, brother to her husband Matthew, and also Uncle Bubby to Lindsey and Sarah. May you fly freely and happily. Enjoy your new, painless, peaceful journey now. Although we are all heartbroken continuing our earthly life without you, we know we will reunite at a more beautiful and tranquil place. Our only regret is having to wait so long to see you again, but we know your spirit will always be with us and your love in our hearts. Thank you for the everlasting memories, we love you always and forever. Love your dad George, mom Bev (Moore) Collins, Christine, Matt, Lindsey and Sarah Keller. Also your grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
