    My family was close to Dennis and Joan, even though we moved from NY to FL in the late 60’s. Our mom, Peg “Collins” Clifford has considered Dennis
    Her brother since they were kids. We share our mothers love and affection for Dennis (even though I believe we were the only ones that called him Duke...), Joan and all the girls. My wife Vikki and I have always looked forward to our NY trips to visit with the Collins family! Dennis will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we will remember his infectious smile and sense of humor. Dennis was born in MA and
    Lived most his life in NY, but it is still presumed illegal to root for the Red Sox and NY Giants in one household....🤪
    Here’s to you Dennis!!!

    Never above you
    Never below you
    Always with you

    There are so many memories, where do I begin? It's hard to pick just one. From seeing you in a canoe on your front lawn horsing around with your college buddies at the house on South Drive; to packing up the kids and driving to the city to see the Thanksgiving Day Parade, and of course, celebrating the holidays at one of your legendary Christmas parties. And who could forget, hiding in a gift shop at Great Adventure while you defended my 5-year old son from an irate park-goer who was rankled by the fact that my son got in free and hers did not. Booming voice indeed!

    You were the son that Rosie never had, and one of the few people she would listen to. She loved your girls as if they were her own grandchildren and she always had the latest pictures of them.

    Although we may not have seen each other in many years, it does not erase the many years of memories I hold in my heart.

    Sleep well, my friend.

    For so many years Christmas season always began at Joan and Dennis Collins beautiful home on the second Saturday in December at the greatest Christmas party ever! So many excited little ones running all over the house waiting Santa's arrival. So much fun too for all the adults. The Collins kitchen was large and like all Irish parties the majority of the "grown ups" would be in there shoulder to shoulder with so much laughter and just so much fun! Dennis was the perfect host always so welcoming. I think the reason all our children are such great friends even today started at these parties. Dennis was just an all round great guy and will be so missed by all who loved him.
