David A. Collins, 87
GORHAM - David A. Collins, born on Oct. 18, 1927, in Framingham, Mass., died peacefully at the Barron Center on Sept. 14, 2015.
He is survived by his wife, Connie, of 64 years; sons, Wayne and John, all of Gorham, and his daughter Cindy and son-in-law, Mike Fiore, also of Gorham. David had five grandchildren, Sage, Anna, Jack, Abby and Sadie, who were the love of his life; sister, Rita Morris and brother, Carl Collins, both of New Brunswick, Canada.
David was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting and fishing. He was a Captain on an oil barge for Gulf Oil and Texaco most of his life which developed his love of the sea. He could be found at Sebago Lake many days fishing and sharing stories with friends.
His love of his family was always present and sharing their lives made his life rich with love. He was the best husband, dad and papa that we could ask for.
A memorial mass in celebration of his life will be held on Sept. 22, 2015, at the Holy Cross Church, 124 Cottage Rd., South Portland, at 10 a.m. There will be a graveside service at Calvary Cemetery, 1461 Broadway, South Portland, following Mass. Arrangements are by the Dolby and Dorr Funeral Chapel, 76 State Street, Gorham. For online condolences, please visit
