Wade Collins of Saguache, Colo., 61 passed away Oct. 1, 2020 doing what he loved; working cattle on a beautiful fall day.

He was born on June 25, 1959 in Salida, Colo., to Don and Judy Collins.

Wade Collins was a native Colorado working cowboy. Wade loved life, working cattle, hunting, fishing, artwork; most of all he loved his family and friends. Wade will always be remembered for his big smile and colorful stories.

His artwork is a record of over 50 years of cowboying in some of Colorado’s most pristine country. Wade’s artwork reflects the colorful people he met along the trail, the hundreds of horses he raised and worked, and the countless challenges of raising cattle in the mountains of Colorado. Wade worked in oils, watercolor, pencil, bronze and relief carving in stone.

Wade is survived by his wife Twyla Walker-Collins, his parents Don and Judy Collins, daughters Susan Collins and Christa Collins-Heikes, (Travis), daughters Codie and Marissa. Son Warren Wade Collins Jr., (Sarah), children Hailey, Lane, and Gracie. His two stepchildren Jamie Livings (Gabe Mackinnon), and Jessica Phillips, (Jeff ), children Hailey, Hadley, and Clara.

Brothers Russ Collins, Jason (Kassi) Kolt Jett and his sister Colleen Green (Randy), and their son James.
