Arthur Mirl Collins, age 64, left this earth to be with his father on Wednesday, November 8, 2017. He was born in Cleveland, Tx to Jesse Boyd Collins and Marie Moore Collins on February 2, 1953. Mr. Collins is preceded in death by his father, whom he loved dearly, and his step daughter, Sheila Solbo. He is survived by his “Lovely Lil Bride” of 16 years, Jane Collins, 1 son, 1 daughter, 9 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandchild, mother, brother, and step sister. Arthur was a loving and supportive husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. He grew up in East Texas and has lived around Liberty, Dayton, and East Houston the majority of his life. His career as a Cooling Tower Superintendent along the Houston Ship Channel, brought him close to many in the industry that he loved sharing his knowledge with. Arthur was one of the most thoughtful, giving, free loving, honorable, loyal people you could ever meet. Known for his one liners and witty sense of humor, he was always bringing smiles to everyone around him. His hobbies included fishing, working with his hands, building things, sharing his knowledge with others, spending time with his grandchildren, and of course doting over his wife. If anyone that he crossed paths with needed anything, he was there offering his help. Arthur Collins was truly one of a kind and will be deeply missed by many.
