It is with great sadness that the family of the late Edward Collins announce his sudden passing at his home in Embree, on Friday, December 29th, 2023 at the age of 66. Edward loved to create and build. He was a master at anything and everything he put his hands to. He was known to take the most common of materials and create something unique and beautiful for the members of his community and visitors from near and far to enjoy. It was his joy to have visitors come and view the many antiques in his museum or take pictures with his life size creations displayed outside his home.
