Eric Wayne Collins
MARATHON, NY- Eric Wayne Collins, 40, of 8 Mara Lane, peacefully passed away on Wednesday evening, January 10, 2017 at his home.

Eric was born September 18, 1977 in Potsdam, son of Wayne Royal and Ann Marie Taylor Collins. He was a graduate of Parishville-Hopkinton Central School, and earned an Associate’s Degree from SUNY Canton.

He was an avid outdoorsman, who loved to hunt, four-wheel, and enjoy his cabin in Tug Hill. He was a gun collector, and loved the car races in the Pocono’s, mud bogging and snowmobile races. Eric just loved to be outside having fun. He enjoyed traveling to Alaska and the Western states to Washington, which were some of his most enjoyable moments.
