Obituary

COLLINS, Derek Gary of Newmarket formerly of Toronto (1964 – 2019)

January 1, 1964 – September 12, 2019


Son of William Gary Collins and the late Bonnie Fay Rankin, survived by his daughter Alicia Collins, stepson Brett Taylor, brother Daryl Collins, sister Suzanne Collins, nieces Patricia Maluenda , Amanda Pryce, Shayna Harper, and nephews Ryan Pryce, Devyn Clarke, as well as many extended family and friends.

Derek passed suddenly and peacefully in his sleep from a heart attack on September 12, 2019 at the young age of 55.

Derek had a passion for dancing, art and sports – particularly football – and sports collectibles. Derek enjoyed being creative and turned many household items into creative works of art. On the dancefloor, not only was Derek dressed impeccably, but he was unstoppable, especially if Janet Jackson played in the background!

Throughout Derek’s life he had a great love for his daughter Alicia, stepson Brett and family life. Derek was very humble and loved taking long drives with family just contemplating life and enjoying the scenery. Derek was compassionate to all of those that were blessed to be in his company.

Visitation will be held at the Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main Street South, Newmarket on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 1- 3 p.m. followed by a memorial service in the chapel at 3 p.m. A celebration of life will be held at Cachet Supper Club, 500 Water Street following the service.
