A Tribute to a True Southern Gentle-Man
by Marianne Ganem-Poppell
– Husband, Father, GrandFather, Friend, Local Business Owner, & Confidant. A spirited joyful man who everyone loved to be around, his smile and laugh could light up an entire county. His positive energy touched anyone he came in contact with. John Collins was a true southern gentleman through & through. He always had a huge smile & even bigger hugs! John usually remembered everyone by name. He was the most genuine, gentile, sincere man. Heaven gained a beautiful angel this weekend and we are all better people for knowing John Collins.
To Lori Collins, the beautiful Aussie that was so lucky to meet her southern match, the love of her life. We love you, Lori and the Savannah community will be here for you. It was an honor to know your genuine love, to know the John & Lori love story. Savannah Coffee Roasters, Savannah, Australia, Collins GA, & the world are all grieving for the loss of a true southern gentleman.
Until we meet again, John Collins, your smile remains in our hearts. Prayers & thoughts are with the entire Collins family.
