Obituary for Edward Albert Collins III at Ricker Funeral Homes & Crematory

Edward Albert Collins III

September 28, 1938 – October 20, 2022

Washington, NH – Edward Albert Collins III passed away after a brief, unexpected illness on October 20, 2022, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Hanover, NH. He had recently turned 84 and was a resident of both Roswell, GA, and Washington, NH.

Ed was born September 28, 1938, in Abington, PA. After attending Swarthmore High School and then graduating from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, he married his high school sweetheart, Gretchen Frances Schiff, in 1960. During his career as a reinsurance underwriter, Ed and Gretchen raised three children and resided in Media, PA; Westfield, NJ; and Wilton, CT. Following Ed’s retirement, the couple moved to Roxbury, CT and then Roswell, GA. In 1996, they built a house on a small, idyllic lake in Washington, NH, and this is where they spent their summers and autumns over the past two decades. 

Ed was a loving, supportive father, and shared his passion for sports with his children, attending gymnastics meets, field hockey tournaments, baseball and softball games, and countless other sporting events throughout their childhood. He himself was an avid golfer and an even more avid fly fisherman. His orange Coleman canoe was a regular sight on the lake in New Hampshire – he had been out fly fishing for trout right up until the final days of his life. He was an active member of both Roswell Presbyterian Church and Washington Congregational Church. And he loved animals, doting on several family dogs over the years.

He will be forever remembered for his soft-spoken kindness and his unwavering willingness to help others.

Ed is survived by his wife, Gretchen; daughter, Wendy of Salt Lake City, UT; daughter, Robin, and her husband, Tom, of Roswell, GA; son, Andrew, and his partner, Fernando, of Mexico City, Mexico and Washington, NH; granddaughter, Megan, and her fiancé, Parker; granddaughter, Rebecca, and her husband, Don; and granddaughter, Elizabeth. He is also survived by his sister, Nancy; sister, Barbara, and her husband, Kent; sister-in-law, Karen; and his brother-in-law, Mitchell. Ed was predeceased by his parents, Edward and Anne Collins, and his brother, Steve. 

Family and friends are invited to Ed’s memorial service on Saturday, November 12, 2022, at 11 am at the Roswell Presbyterian Church, 755 Mimosa Blvd., Roswell, GA 30075.

In lieu of flowers, Ed’s family suggests that you consider making a donation in his memory to the Guatemala Scholarship fund at Roswell Presbyterian Church (https://secure.accessacs.com/access/oglogin.aspx?sn=90118; under “select a fund,” scroll down to “2023 Guatemala Schol”) or to The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (https://forestsociety.org/contributions).
