Chris Collins Memorial Fund

With all of our gratitude we thank everyone for their hope, prayers and blessings over the past weeks, but unfortunately, Chris' battle has come to an end and he is now in a much better place. In the end his body could no longer overcome the bleeding that began from infections and the continued care could not be sustained. Even the doctors and nurses said that he fought harder than anyone else they have seen. It just became too much for him.

Chris had so many families. His own family, his family of friends, his work family, his fire department family...on and on! He was loved by so many as is his wife and daughter. He fought an incredible battle, so lets continue the fight by helping Kristin and Grace as he would have done for any of us. They need us more now than ever...let us help to relieve them of the unexpected financial burden it will take to celebrate Chris' life in a way he so deserved. “We got this Chris!”
