Henry Collins (AKA Ernest Artin/Art in Ernest) passed peacefully from this life on Jan. 4, 2021, under the loving care of Hospice House, shortly after his 80th birthday.  Henry passionately loved his family.  And his passion for Art sustained him until he could no longer perform.

He will best be remembered as a beloved Professor of Art at College of the Redwoods from the mid-1960s to the 1970s. His Wit and Charm were his most memorable qualities.  And though he "did not suffer fools gladly", he had many friends who have been missing him since he lost his hearing and faded from view some years ago. His daughters Lisa  Collins and Maya Collins, along with his ex-partner and long-time friend, Sharon Wyche-Frei and her daughter Tam Elijah (Saba), would like to extend our gratitude to Shin Luong, with Adult Protective Services, and to the PACE Program at the Humboldt Senior Resource Center, as well as to all of the wonderful caregivers at Hospice House. And to the friends he made during Happy Hour at the Grill Bar, thank you for your friendship and your concern.
