James "Tubby" Collins
Collins, James David “Tubby” … It is with great sadness we announce the passing of James “Tubby” Collins, on Tuesday November 20, 2018 at the age of 85. Tubby is reunited with his beloved wife Doreen, son Randy and son-in-law Bob. He is predeceased by his parents William and Florence Collins, his five brothers and two sisters. Tubby leaves precious memories with his girls Cindy Harasti, Linda Grummett (Steve), Julie Collins (Howie) and his “adopted” daughter Nelia. Cherished Papa to Katie, Brittany and Jason. Proud Poppy to great-grandchildren Hannah, Aiden and Tauriel. He will also be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews and many treasured friends. Tubby was a hardworking man with a true zest for life. His sense of humour–..beyond words. He started playing hockey at a young age and ended his career with the Galt Oldtimers. He was an avid golfer, referee and baseball coach which earned him a spot in the Cambridge Hall of Fame. He was a true fan of the Leafs, Argos and even the Cleveland Browns. When gathering with family and friends, he started with a cold Black Label and always ended with a “Home Run”. He is truly a man that will be sorely missed. Special thanks to the entire staff at Hilltop Manor for providing excellent care and friendship to our dad. Please join us for a Celebration of Tubby’s life at Corbett Funeral Home, 95 Dundas St., Cambridge, on Saturday December 8, 2018 at 11a.m. As an expression of sympathy, donations made to Kids Can Play would be appreciated by the family.
