Dale Collins

Dale Collins, 50, went home to be with the Lord on December 29, 2021. He was born December 4, 1971 in Washington Court House. Dale was an active member of Grace Church-Norton and loved to serve whenever and wherever he could. Dale was always up for an adventure and loved to be outdoors hunting and fishing with his children. He had the best laugh which allowed him to never meet a stranger. You could always find Dale on the soccer field with video camera in hand watching his children play the sport they loved. Dale loved his family fiercely with an unconditional love. His children always called him their hero and they strive to have the faith that he had. Dale showed the love of Jesus to his family, friends, soccer family, co-workers and customers every day. He will be greatly missed.

Dale was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ben and Mae Collins; aunt, Esther Collins; grandpa, Bernard Wittenmyer. He is survived by his wife of 26 years Melanie; children, Trevor, Trent, Tray, Anna, Troy; bonus daughter, Madison Tatka; parents, Leonard and Charlene Collins; father and mother-in-law, Teddy and Linda Squires; brother, Kevin (Kari) Collins; sister-in-law, Jennifer (Lee) Tomes; nephews; Tyler (Ashley) Tomes, Caleb Tomes; nieces, Kari Beth, Kassie Rae, Kaleigh Collins; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

We would like to give a special thanks to Pastor Dan and Jennifer Gregory for their love and support of our family through this difficult time.

Dale was in our home regularly (Orkin)and his kindness was evident and his love for his family obvious. His absence here reminds us he is present with Christ. I pray for comfort and peace for his wife and family. May God walk with you during this difficult time.
