Stanley Darryl Collins was born to the late J.D. Collins and Johanna Elzy-Collins on November 21, 1962 in Crowville, Louisiana. He was one of nineteen children.

Stanley united with the Philadelphia Baptist Church at an early age under the leadership of Reverend H.B. Rancher.

Stanley attended Waverly High School. After integration, he attended Crowville High School, where he played basketball. Stan loved to cook and was loved by many far and near.

Stanley was fun to be around. He was full of life and the life of the party. Often, he was referred to as “The Big Show.” He would always find a way to make whoever was around him laugh, regardless of what’s going on.

Stanley fathered one child, Yolanda McCall. She was his pride and joy. Stanley was very proud of his daughter’s achievements.

Stan was preceded in death by his parents, J.D. and Johanna Collins; four brothers, Herman Collins, Charles Collins, Edward Collins, and Jerome Collins; and four sisters, Leola Anderson, Ora Jean Taylor, Joy Faye Collins, and JoAnn Collins.
