Kim, Brad and Jody, prayers are with you. Coach Collins was one-of-a-kind. He taught me Driver’s Ed classes and was so funny. I am sure I am just one of many students saddened by this news today.

"Coach Collins" always put a smile on my face. He was just one of those teachers you just "looked for" just to say hello. Such a great, great man. 

You can learn a lot about a man, just by seeing their kids, and how they handle themselves. 

Kim, Brad & Jody are all amazing humans. "The apple doesn't fall far off the tree". RIP Coach Collins.

What a very special man he was! His patience, toughness and sense of humor were exactly what my boys needed when he taught them to finally swim. Love to the family!
