Obituary for Henry Clay Collins

FORT WORTH – Henry “H.C.” Collins entered the gates of Heaven on Friday, September 13, 2019, at the age of 93.

Those who knew H.C. will remember his infectious smile, that he wore well. He was a hard worker and enjoyed life. Throughout his years, you may find him in his shop doing woodwork or building the next project Minnie asked him to make, in addition to yard work and maintaining their beautiful, plush Saint Augustine yard. In the mornings, you would find him in his chair reading the daily newspaper.

H.C. was quite the bowler. He spent many years bowling with Deaf Leagues in the community. His compassion for others was received by his family, friends and the community he served. During football season, he would be cheering and watching his beloved Dallas Cowboys.

You will be remembered always and looking over us.
