Harold William Collins, 79, of Cumberland passed peacefully at his home on January 27, 2022.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert James Collins and Irene Norman Collins.

Marklin (Jeremy), H. William Collins, III, Ryan E. Taylor (Natalie), Alexander R. Pulley, Dylan G. Pulley and Harleigh D. Marion, and three great granddaughters, Braelyn, Jewel and McKenna and lots of extended family and friends.
