Born May 4, 1951 in Tazewell, VA; he was the son of the late Pritchard Pat Collins and Irene Beavers Collins Shupe.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Pritchard Farley Collins.
Steve studied culinary arts under the direction of The Greenbrier Hotel and was Chef at many restaurants in both West Virginia and Virginia over the years. He was of the Baptist faith and in his free time loved being in the outdoors. When not working, he could usually be found with a fishing pole in his hand, looking for ginseng or turkey hunting. He also coached little league baseball and participated in and won many fly casting competitions.
