It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Dr. Selwyn Collins on October 24, 2022 at the age of 93 at home, surrounded by his loving family.
Beloved husband of 60 years to Frances (Alter), loving father to Melissa Collins (Roger) and Jonathan Collins (Ashkan). Son of Mark (z”l) and Helen (z”l) (Bernhardt) Collins.
Dear brother and brother in-law of Shirley and Sidney Allweis (z”l) of Manchester, England and Ronnee and Lloyd (z”l) Alter of London, Ontario. Caring uncle to nephews and nieces. Honorary grandfather to Daniel and Lauren. Will be deeply missed by Michael and Jonathan.
A humble man whose generous heart also extended to all his patients who he cared for during over 40 years in practice.
His greatest joy other than his family was helping people, teaching others and making people laugh.
A special thank you to his dedicated personal caregivers, his homecare team and Dr. Chung who was both his colleague for 40 years and later his physician.
He will be immensely missed and forever loved.
