Greer lost a memorable personality last week as J. Van Collins passed away at the age of 70.

Son of the late J. Van Collins Sr. and Georgia Mae Collins, he was known and loved by many in the Greer area.

“I’ll miss him a lot,” said Greer resident Gary Griffin. “He was one of the colorful characters of Greer.”
