Alfred L. Collins, Sr.

Alfred Lee Collins was born October 15, 1949 in Austin, texas to Algie Lee Collins and Ruby Dee Smith, both who preceded him in death.

Alfred attended Stephen F. Austin High School, Class of 1968, Texas Southern University, The University of Texas and St. Edward's University. he served in the U. S. Army and did a tour of duty in Vietnam for two years.

He was the "Big Brother" to his brothers and sister. He enjoyed the excitement of various sport events, traveling, and Friday night dinners with family. he loved spending time with his grandchildren. he liked all day shopping at his favorite stores, Big Lots, Costco, and Sam's. Before shopping, there was a plan: eating, shopping, eating again and more shopping while planning dinner. Every year he looked forward to the State Fair classic in Dallas, Texas. He wanted to watch prairie View A&M win or lose, see and hear the band perform, then eat turkey legs and funnel cakes before boarding Judge Scott's bus to Austin.

His passion for numbers led to his successful career as a tax consultant and accountant and through his work he gained lifelong clients and friends.

he is survived by his siblings: Robert Milton Collins, Sr. (Wilretta), Timothy Lee Collins, Sr. (Willie Mae), Julia DeLois Nesby (David), Andrew "Andy" Collins (Sharon), Christopher Collins (Zanell); children Judge Dominque L. Collins (Mike), Alfred Lee Collins, Jr. (Nicole), Captain Kevin Frederick Collins, and Shyra Loyce Collins Chapman (Donovan); grandchildren, Paige Goins (Dominque), Christen, Jasmine, Kelly, Alex, and Landon (Alfred, Jr.), Theophilus (Kevin), Micah, Ian, Josiah, Kyra (Shyra); and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
