I am truly saddened to hear the news of Larry's passing. I served as Larry's dissertation committee chair and worked with him from 2017 until he became Dr. Collins earlier this year. He worked so hard to balance his family, work, and school responsibilities - and I never heard him complain. Larry was not only my student, but he was also a friend and I will really miss him. Although we planned it, we didn't get the chance to enjoy our celebration dinner together, but his dissertation committee will certainly celebrate his life and accomplishments.

To the Collins Family,

I am sorry for you loss. Larry was a great person. We partnered on many projects together in pursuit of our Doctorate. Larry would always talk about his love for his family and his passion for fire fighting. I learned a lot from him, and it was an honor to be both a classmate and a friend. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Larry Collins was a great man with a loud and humorous personality. I would not have graduated with my doctoral degree intact without his humor.

Jeanne, Brandon, Aaron and Cory, Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you at this time. Larry was a kind man who touched so many lives in such a positive way. He was a wonderful role model as a basketball coach at Immaculate Conception, one I know my son will never forget. May he rest in peace and may time bring you all peace and comfort. You are all in our prayers!

It was an honor to work for Larry. He was a hard worker and made every minute count. The City of Louisville is better for Larry being a part of it and his influence upon the City will endure. We will miss Larry’s smile, sense of humor, and honesty. He was a great human being. As long as I live I will remember him and what I have learned from him. And to his son, who I do not really know, I wanted you to know how proud your dad was of you. He often shared stories about you and your accomplishments. I know that no matter how many times you hear how much your father was proud of you or how much he loved you it is not enough…so I wanted you to hear it from a stranger one more time. I will miss Larry.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Larry. Our prayers and condolences to the Jeanne and the family. We only had the privledge of knowing Larry for a brief time. We loved and respected Larry as a person. We know he was the best City Manager Louisville ever had. It's a great loss for his family and great loss for the City of Louisville. We can only imagine what he would have accomplished at Louiisville. We are sure it would have been great. The few times that Martha met with Jeanne left an immpression of what a good person she is. We mourn for Larry today and we know he will be missed by all.
God Bless,
