Nicholas James Collins, 31, died on Monday, October 29, 2018. Born in Meriden on March 28, 1987, he was the son of Nick D. Collins, Laurie Couture Collins and Neil R. Orsini. He had resided in Meriden for the majority of his life. Nick graduated from O.H. Platt High School and attended Lincoln Tech. Nick loved music, horror films, comics and most of all his son Jake. He always attended opening day of fishing.
He is survived by his son, Jake Robert James Collins and Jake’s mother, Christina Fiore; three sisters, Katelyn A. Collins, Kristy L. Collins and Kaycee C. Orsini and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
The funeral will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 12 noon at the John J. Ferry & sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main Street, Meriden. Burial will be in Walnut Grove Cemetery. Family and friends may call at the funeral home on Saturday morning prior to the service from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Nick made everyone feel special and loved. He had more best friends than one would think possible; that is the way he made people feel. He was kind, warm and affectionate. To say he will be missed is an understatement. He touched a lot of lives. I am the mom of one of Nick's close friends - he was very kind to me over the years. His nature said a lot about his family, and though that may be small consolation, I hope it helps.
