Buddy Collins, 74, of Rockport, passed away January 13, 2021, at Millers Merry Manor. He was born August 2, 1946 in Norton, VA, to the late Woodrow and Martha Ellen Collins. Buddy enjoyed fishing, playing golf, and most of all, being with his family. He loved watching wrestling and Westerns on the T.V. Buddy was a simple man who enjoyed life's simple pleasures. He had never met a stranger, which is how he came to be called "Buddy." Buddy was everyone's friend and will be remembered for his wonderful personality and wit.

He was preceded in death by his sisters, Barbara Rittenberry, Wilma Fields, and Imogene McCoy.

Buddy is survived by his wife of 51 years, Olivia Masters Collins; his sons, Chuck (Stevie) Collins and Tim (Robin) Collins; his grandchildren, Emily, Austin, Hannah, and Brynlee; his great-grandchild, Josiah; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
