Donald Sharp Collins passed away peacefully under a pink sunset on the last day of summer, September 21, 2016. He left this world as he had wished, in the house that he was born 91 years earlier surrounded by the love of all of his children and several grandchildren and his oldest great-grandchild.
Donald served honorably in WWII in the European theatre as a belly gunner of a B-17 bomber where he earned the Distinguished Flying Cross for his heroic actions.
Once returning to the states, he worked at Airwork in Millville, NJ for over 40 years.
Donald is survived by two daughters Maryann Noblett (Ray), Donna Lynn Gendusa (Vince), Randall Hughes (Deanna) and D. Scott Collins (Chere) as well as nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
