Mr. James H. Collins, 73, of Twin Groves, AR departed this life on Monday, September 19, 2022. He was born July 14, 1949 in North Little Rock, AR to the late Elmire and Mary (Freeman) Rowe.

He was a devoted husband of 52 years, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He enjoyed spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, mechanical work, fixing and building things. He enjoyed the smaller things in life: a clean home, yard and a nice home cooked meal. He took pride in his grass. Growing up, the kids knew not to step a foot on the grass. He was all about presentation.
