Jack David Collins, age 62, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at Turkey Creek Medical Center in Knoxville. He was a loving husband, daddy, papaw, and friend to all who knew him. He loved to share his faith and love for Jesus with everyone he met. He was saved at the age of 11, was currently a faithful member of Russellville Baptist Church, and had great love for First Baptist Church of Bean Station and Cherokee Heights Baptist Church.
