Obituary for Hayvert Lee Collins

Hayvert Lee  Collins
Hayvert Lee Collins, son of James Herbert Collins, Sr. and Olivia Mary Upshur Collins, was born on June 1, 1941 in Belle Haven, Virginia. He transitioned from earth to his heavenly home on December 20, 2017 at his residence in Painter, Virginia.

Hayvert received his education from the Accomack County Public Schools. After working on the family’s farm, he relocated to Hurlock, Maryland and began working in Dover, Delaware at Kraft Foods Inc. He spent most of his adult life, thirty plus years, working for Kraft Foods until his retirement.

Hayvert accepted Christ at a young age and became a lifelong member of New Allen Memorial A.M.E. Church. Along with being a devout christian, Hayvert enjoyed spending his leisure time raising and training several pets and tending to his garden.

His signature mantra was, “Then my living shall not be in vain, because I have truly lived my life unto the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All that I have done for my brethren and fellowmen to share and lighten their burdens, I have done it unto the will and pleasing of God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Because He gave His life and shed His blood and have redeemed us all from everlasting destruction.”

Hayvert is preceded in death by his mother, Olivia Mary Upshur Collins; father, James Herbert Collins, Sr.; sisters, Mallie Smith, Victoria Chandler, and Margaret Parker; and brothers, James Herbert Collins, Jr., Floyd Collins, and Caleb Collins.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his sisters, Louise Collins of Painter VA, Dollie (Charles) Bush of Norwalk, CT, Stella Johnson of Millington, MD, and Viola Hudson of Painter, VA; brother, William Collins of Painter VA; sister-in-law, Francine Collins; and a host of nieces, nephews, and his pet cat, Tigger.
