The sibling chain of the late James Collins Sr.. and Aggie Little Collins has broken.

On Thursday, October 14, 2021, God saw fit that another one of His children was growing weak and tired  of fighting in this world and called him home.  Lee was the 4th child of this close knitted circle of brothers and sisters.

Lee Edward Collins was born on Saturday, October 23, 1948 to James Collins, Sr., and Aggie Little Collins of Mt. Gilead, NC, who preceded him in death.

Lee was formerly employed with Jacob Creek Stone Company of Denton, NC and Gus Shad Associates of Albemarle, NC.  He was King of the Hill, a member of the Esquires and the Mt. Gilead Concerned Citizens.

Gilead, NC; two step-sons, Devon Demetrious Little (Cassandra) of Mt.
