Junius (Glenn) Collins, 64, passed away Friday, July 31, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Carolyn Collins; one brother, Harvey Lynn Collins; and one son, Glynn Redwine.

Junius (Glenn) Collins worked for Duke Energy for 36 years at the Brunswick Plant. He retired Dec. 31, 2018. Glenn was deeply loved and respected by his colleagues. He will surely be missed by many.

A graveside service will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5 in the White’s Creek Baptist Church Cemetery in Clarkton with Pastor Shannon Ross and Rev. Larry Hayes officiating. The family will receive friends immediately following the service. All attendees are asked to practice social distancing.

Glenn leaves behind his wife, Donna B. Collins of the home; one son, Cory Glenn Collins of Clarkton; one daughter, Ollie Nicole Collins of Leland; two brothers, Randall Collins of Lisbon, Davey Donaldson of Rocky Point; and a very special friend and fishing partner, B.J. Glenn was a family man who loved his children and grandchildren deeply. One of his favorite quotes was “No pow-pows for the babies at Grends house.” Left to cherish his memory are his 11 grandchildren, E.J., Kelvin JaQuinn, Elijah, Deven, Lexie, Trinity, Toni, Cash, Keatyn, Nicholas and Caulder Glenn.
