Jan 11th, 2020
James S. Collins, Jr. “Jim” 76 of Yarmouth Port died at his home Saturday January 11, 2020.
He was the loving husband of Carol B. (Feltch) Collins. They had been happily married for 57 years.
Born in Quincy, Mr. Collins was the son of James S. and Lucia (Milliken) Collins and moved to Yarmouth as a young boy. He graduated from Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School and earned his Master’s Degree in Accounting from UMass Dartmouth, formerly SMU.
Jim met the love of his life, Carol, while in high school and they were blessed with three daughters and a granddaughter.
Jim's working career began as an Assistant Administrator for a local New England Hospital. Shortly after, he pursued his dreams of owning his own business and did so for the rest of his career. Jim was well known in the business community for owning Bass River Marina in West Dennis and Route 134 Shell Service Station in South Dennis.
