William Patrick Collins (Wild Bill) to most was just Pop. He never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone and everyone. He was a good friend, wonderful Grandfather, and never took people for granted. He was just an old war veteran who loved to read, watch football, WWE, and create things with his hands. If you ever needed a listing ear or some good advice he was the perfect one to go to. Pop never judged anyone. He always wanted people to find what made them happy in life.

He was preceded in death by his son, Dale Shaw. He is survived by his wife, Deanna Collins of Forest, MS; five children, Bridget Gilmer of Forest, MS; Pam Herrington of Crystal Springs, MS; Dean Trudeau of Pearl, MS; Darren Trudeau of Forest, MS; and Lynn Jones of Pearl, MS. He is also survived by three sisters, Mary Collins; Sandra Collins; and Kathren Collins; two brothers, Jack Collins, Jr.; and Robert Collins. He is also survived by seventeen grandchildren and twenty-one great grandchildren.
