Rick Collins of Willow Grove died following a long illness on Friday, February 5, 2021 at Jefferson University Hospital surrounded by the love of his family. He was 57.
Rick was the loving husband of Susan Little Collins and together they shared over 30 years of love, marriage, and life’s adventures.
Born in Doylestown, he was the son of Richard A. Collins of Surfside, SC and the late Nanci Roberts Collins.
Rick grew up in Penns Park and graduated from Council Rock High School. He began his career as a truck driver, following in his father's footsteps. Eventually he started his own business with his wife, R&R Lawn Care.
