Met Homer back when I worked for Savannah Tool House and always remember him as one of the most happy and fun people to be around. This world is a better place for him being a part of it. I know I'm a better person just from knowing him. Good to know he is in a better place than we.
My heart goes out to the Collins Clan, It was my pleasure to know Homer and and have him as a friend. Rest In peace!
I am shocked to hear of Homers Passing. We were good friends when I worked for Chatham County EMS. He and my deceased brother-in-law Steve Hill were friends and Partners for a time. My prayers are with your family during this time of sadness. Homer was a good man and will be missed by all that knew him.
We love you Grandpa! Say hey to AJ for us.
Chris, Shannon, Andrew, and Alex.
TO THE FAMILY OF MR HOMER COLLINS, I WILL MISS HIM. HE WAS ALWAYS PLEASANT AND A JOY TO BE AROUND. MRS. SHIRLEY I PRAY THAT GOD WILL GIVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY STRENGTH DURING THIS TIME. TO MEET HIM WAS A PLEASURE.
Alan, Sherrie, Rob & Leslie, my thoughts and prayer are with you and your whole family. Your dad was a kind, good man, and the world was blessed to have him here. Now he is in heaven hanging out with AJ and probably making a lot of those who went before them laugh and smile a little more.
Your family is in our prayers
We will all miss Mr. Collins. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.I know that he was proud of the family that he help raise with his Loveing wife.

Homer always made me laugh. He will be missed. Prayers go out to the family.
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
Dear Family, I just got the news of Homer and am saddened by the news. I had the honor of working with Homer when he worked with the Church. There are people who pass by in your life and there are those who leave a foot print in your heart. Homer is one of those people, he left a foot print. Yes, he always had a joke and we have shared alot of laughter at some of his jokes. I will always remember the low country boil he did for one of our Christmas gatherings and the flower holder he made for each of us. I will always cherish the memories and how he talked about his family. My prayers are with you and in the days to come.
We are so sorry for your loss, your family is in our prayers
My thoughts and prayers to the family. Homer was an amazing man, always with a smile, and hint of mischief in his eye. He could make anyone laugh and had a way of making people feel at ease. Homer you will be missed.

Homer Collins was a good man. He was a mentor to me as a new police officer and friend for many years. I never knew him when he wasn't smiling and laughing. He will be missed ... "Fair Winds and Following Seas".
Shirley and family, we sure were sorry to hear about Homer. He was a good man and the write up about him was correct. He loved to tell jokes and have fun. He will surely be missed and our prayers are with you.
Homer, I was so hoping that you could pull this out and get back on your feet again. You remember our talk Saturday evening at Memorial Hospital. I guess God needed you more than we did here on Earth!
Thanks for the friendship of over 40 years.
I never will forget when you invited me to your house to have dinner with you, Shirley, and the kids. I was a young rookie on the CCPD. Both your kindnes and Shirley's was never forgotten.
We will meet again beyond this old earthone day.
