Chuck followed God’s plan and was called Home to be with Him on Thursday, August 22 after a short illness. His loving family and a dear friend were at his side – he was never alone.
Chuck was born in Pittsburgh on November 22, 1964 to Charles and Constance (McCarthy) Collins. He was the beloved older brother to Michael (Jill) Collins and Constance (William) Gaus.
Chuck was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting, boating, and fishing near the family camp in Tionesta, PA, where he was also a master builder of campfires. He also loved the beach and saltwater fishing at his lifelong most favorite destination, the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As many have said: “he had an infectious smile and was put on this earth to make people laugh!” Chuck was a hero to his younger cousins and the adored and fun-loving uncle to his nieces and nephews: Anne, Shane, Sarah and Ryan.
