“It’s the circle of life, and it moves us all, through despair and hope, through faith and love, till we find our place ~ The Lion King”
In loving memory of Alexandre Olivier Collin, 91 years young, who passed away peacefully on Monday, November 28, 2022, at Health Sciences North, Sudbury, Ontario.
Alex was born on December 14, 1931, with a “twinkle in his eye,” in Quebec City. He later moved to Dalton where he met his wife and had two children. There, Alex built two tourist camps, Dalton Camp and Dog Lake Cottage, which he and his family successfully operated for over 20 years. Though they moved to Sudbury (where Alex retired as part Owner/Operator of Collin Paving), you always knew he left his heart back in Dalton where he returned for many years as an avid hunter and fisherman.
Beloved husband of Aline (nee Desjardins) predeceased and Alida Landers. Loving Father to Lorraine Hebert (Mitch), and Danny Collin. Stepfather to Monique Landers predeceased, Carol Delay (Mike), Pat Labelle (Fern), Dan Landers and Kevin Landers. Cherished grandfather of Stephane Hebert (Jess), Mathew Hebert (Tina), Alexandria Collin, and Cheryl Nenonen. Alex also had six great grandchildren. Dear brother to Kathleen Bouchard (Romeo predeceased), Adelard Collin (Gloria), Pete Collin predeceased (Irene), Bill Collin predeceased, Flora Tamura (Makoto) both predeceased, Theresa Perreault (Rolly), both predeceased, Aurora Grigsby (Al) both predeceased, Marie Henderson (Paul) both predeceased, Phillip Collin (Jackie) both predeceased, and Armand Collin predeceased (Dorothy),
