Michael "Mike" Collins

June 27, 1951 — October 11, 2020

Michael “Mike” Collins, 69, of Indianapolis, died from congestive heart failure on October 11, 2020. He was born June 27, 1951, in Indianapolis to the late Wally and Rosemary (Long) Collins, who were members of the former St. Catherine Catholic Church and, later, of St. Roch Catholic Church.

From the mid-1950s to 2019, Mike attended day services at Noble of Indiana, most recently at Noble East on E. 21st St., Indianapolis. He enjoyed long vacations with his family, the backyard swimming pool, reading maps, food (especially holiday meals), car rides, and watching traffic.

Mike was the eldest of six children and is survived by his siblings, Eileen McCormick (Mark), Martinsville; Terry Collins (Michelle), Westfield; Joe Collins (Karen), Grand Rapids, MI; Pat Collins (Linda), Indianapolis; and Ed Collins, Indianapolis; uncle Al Long (Beverly), Indianapolis; two nieces; four nephews; three step nieces; a great niece and a great nephew.

The family is grateful for the kind services provided by Franciscan Hospice, the friends and staff at Noble of Indiana, and Mike's brother Ed, who cared for him the past eleven years.
