Obituary

Richard A. Collins passed away on October 19, 2019 at Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital in Hood River, Oregon. He was 81 years of age at the time of his passing.

Richard was born on January 21, 1938 in Oakland, CA to parents Margaret (Mullineaux) and Francis Collins. He was the oldest of four siblings; sisters Caroline Davis and Peggy Redfern; and brothers Ernest and Daniel Rodrigues.

He enlisted in the Air Force in 1955. After his discharge he received his GED as well as multiple certifications in a variety of areas. Education was very important to him.

Richard was married two times. He had two children with his first wife; a son Richard Alexander and a daughter Kathleen. He lived in several cities throughout his life and was a resident of Cascade Locks at the time of his death.

He spent many years as truck driver for Ameron Pipe Company, but his true passion was living the outdoor life. Richard loved hunting, fishing, and archery. He also loved the woods, the lakes, the rivers and just admiring creation around him. He took advantage of every opportunity to enjoy to the great outdoors!

Richard is survived by his children; Richard Alexander Collins and Kathleen Ginter; three fabulous grandchildren Vanessa Archuleta, Malissa Luvianos and Anthony Ginter; and four beautiful great granddaughters Destinee Morrison, Lola and Jocelyn Luvianos and Aiyanna Meza.
