Nov 22, 1964 – Aug 22, 2019 (Age 54)


Send Flowers


Chuck followed God's plan and was called Home to be with Him on Thursday, August 22, 2019, after a short illness. His loving family and a dear friend were at his side - he was never alone. Chuck was born in Pittsburgh on November 22, 1964 to Charles and Constance (McCarthy) Collins. He was the beloved older brother to Michael (Jill) Collins and Constance (William) Gaus. Chuck was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting, boating, and fishing near the family camp in Tionesta, PA, where he was also a master builder of campfires. He also loved the beach and saltwater fishing at his lifelong most favorite destination, the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As many have said: "he had an infectious smile and was put on this earth to make people laugh!" Chuck was a hero to his younger cousins and the adored and fun-loving uncle to his nieces and nephews: Anne, Shane, Sarah and Ryan. Chuck was a 1987 graduate of Westminster College where he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management and was a proud brother in the Sigma Nu Fraternity. He was a Senior Manager at BNY Mellon Wealth Management in Pittsburgh. In addition to his brother and sister, he is survived by his Father, Charles, Jr. and his children, Zachary, Brianna, and Ian, whom he cherished. He is also by survived by his loving aunt Mary (David) Jack, uncle Ron Romeo, aunt Judy and many cousins, nieces and nephews all of whom love him dearly. He was preceded in death by his beloved Mom, his uncle Paul and aunt Thecla. Friends and family will be received at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME OF CRANBERRY, 2678 Rochester Rd., 724-772-8800 Thursday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and on Friday from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, August 31, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Kilian Church, 7076 Franklin Rd., Cranberry Twp. If you'd rather not send flowers, please make a donation to the National Parks or a hunting/fishing related charity that makes you feel good.

Chucky will always have a special place in my heart. All the fun summers. (with the York/Mazer/Katherine clan)
Your smile will always be remembered. May you be at eternal peace.

To the Collins Family, I am so saddened by the news of Chuck's passing. He was such a kind, good, generous, funny and loving man. I reconnected with Chuck 5+ years ago and we shared lots of laughs and fun together. He loved every single one of his family members. I would listen to his memories of his childhood and college. From time spent with Mike and Connie, his parents, aunts and uncles, the many cousins and to more recent memories spent with his children and nieces, nephews at Cape...

Sorry to learn of Chuck's passing. He was a wonderful student and had quite a sense of humor. God bless his family at this difficult time. I have delightful memories of the Collins Family at Seville Elementary. Rest in Peace!

I'm so sorry to hear about Chucks passing. Hr was a good trusted friend from the old neighborhood in high school. I can think of so many memories where he made me laugh. I always enjoyed his company. Rest in peace Chuck and to the Collins family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
