On Friday April 7, 2023, Ronald Douglas Collins of Greenbank, Ontario passed away at the age of 76 years. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Donna Collins, his two children David and Rhonda Short and her husband Tim, his brother George, his grandchildren Taylor, Riley, Tanner, Jadyn and his great grandchild Coast.
Ron Collins was perpetual motion.
He showed his love for all with acts of service. He was always there to lend a hand. He was a builder. He built homes, duct work for countless buildings throughout the GTA, furniture, pools, a business etc. but more importantly, he built strong relationships with those he loved. He was devoted to his family and friends and was liked by all he met.
He lived life with an honesty and integrity that is hard to come by. He was a man of few words but many strong morals and values. His work ethic could not be surpassed, whether it was coaching minor hockey or creating one of his many projects. He was a wonderful tireless man. Ron will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
