Glen was born on Oct. 4, 1947, in Houma, the son of Charles Clay and Lois Baker Collins.
Glen was a man of great integrity with a heart full of love. He never missed a chance to tell a story, share a “zinger” or start a project.
One of the happiest times in his life was the year he spent at the John Folse Institute at Nicholls State University. He was also a very proud graduate of St. Mary University in San Antonio, Texas, and held a special devotion to TARC.

Glen is also survived by two brothers, Charles Collins and wife Jean of Houma, and Tommy Collins and wife Marjorie of Houma.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles Clay and Lois Baker Collins; and one brother, Mel Collins.
