Mr. Collins, known as Pat, was born Sept. 11, 1958, in Waterbury, Conn., to Theodore M. and Mary E. Brooks Collins. He grew up and was educated in Anaheim, Calif. In 1974 he moved to Clatsop County and began a career in the drywall business with a brother-in-law.

On May 11, 1983, he married Diana I. Pender in Warrenton.

In the early 1990s he and his family moved to Eastern Oregon, where he continued his construction business and worked for McReynolds Cabinets and Pine Eagle Freight Lines in La Grande.

The family moved to Union in 1992 and lived there until 2001, at which time they returned to Clatsop County. They made their home in Seaside, where he owned his own company, Pat Collins Construction.

He was a member of and served as a deacon at the Bread of Life Fellowship Church in La Grande, and was a member of the Coastline Christian Fellowship Church in Olney.

He will be remembered as a hard-working person, devoted to his wife and family. He enjoyed spending time with his family, going to amusement parks, walking on the beach, camping, water-skiing and fishing. He loved the early morning hours and watching falling stars.
