Wayne McGill Collins

September 15, 1936 — July 9, 2024


Wayne McGill Collins

At six foot four inches tall, Wayne McGill Collins was often the tallest person in the room, soaring above the crowd with his blond hair and blue eyes. His imposing frame held an even bigger heart which will be sorely missed. On Tuesday, July 9th, 2024, Wayne passed away. 

Born September 15, 1936, Wayne was the middle child of Harry and Hattie Collins in Mayodan, NC. He never forgot his southern roots or that spot of tar on his heel. He served in the Army National Guard and graduated from Virginia Polytechnical Institute. In 1965, he drove in his convertible with the top down and a TV in the back seat to Dallas, Texas where he met and married the love of his life, Mary Faye Richwine in 1969. They welcomed three children and then moved to Noblesville, Indiana in 1979.  

Wayne was a born salesman and spent many years working for R.O. Whitesell before opening his own sales company, WACO Sales. He was a loving and wise father who taught his children to work hard and have high integrity. He coached soccer teams and even won father of the year from the Noblesville Kiwanis Club. He loved to golf, fish, work crossword puzzles, and enjoy a cold beverage. His favorite role was that of grandfather and watching his five grandchildren grow as strong and beautiful as the flowers in his back yard. 

Wayne was a great man with an even greater passion for life. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Mary Faye, daughter Jenny Sage (Justin), and daughter Marcie Richardson (Dave) as well as his five grandchildren Katie (Sage), Lloyd (Sage), Justin (Sage), Collin (Matthews), and Ben (Sage), and sister Barbara Leech, all of whom will deeply miss his southern drawl, wonderful sense of humor, and penchant for Culver’s milkshakes. 

In addition to his parents, Wayne was preceded in death by his son, Mike, and brother, Frank. 

Wayne’s family remains grateful for the 87 years of incredible memories and wonderful experiences with this patriarch.
