Born in Idaho Falls, Idaho on April 22
, 1960 to
Douglas Errol Collins and Lois Jean Collins. Died February 7
in Boise, Idaho. Mr. Ed was the baby brother to Lynne Colleen Comstock, Nancy
Jean Collins, and Douglas Patrick Collins. Eddie grew up playing in the sage
brush on the hills of Pocatello and in the Snake River at the family cabin in
Island Park. He loved to hunt with his father, his brother and eventually his
son, Colby. His many spoiled Labradors were constant companions for many years.
He married Mary Collins in Pocatello and had two beautiful, smart, successful
children, his son Colby and daughter Madison. Ed managed motels and bars as a
young man, but his true calling was as a skilled carpenter and remodeler. He
built amazing furniture out of the natural wood and rocks of Idaho. His
creations were not only original, but beautiful, just like the man.
He is survived by his mother Lois, his sister
Nancy, his brother Doug, and his children, Colby (Candice), Madison, and his
grandchildren Sailor and Easton. As in life, he did not want a fuss, so no
formal service will be held.
