Obituary for Larry Douglas Collier

Mr. Larry Douglas Collier died Monday, March 4, 2019 in Eufaula, Alabama. Larry was born on July 26, 1949 at Lisenby Hospital in Panama City, Florida. His father and mother were Epsy Collier and Barbara Mock Collier. Mr. Collier grew up at 834 Grace Avenue and attended Panama Grammar School and Jinks Junior High School. He graduated from Bay High School in 1967. He worked for several years as sales manager for Flint Industrial Products in Albany, Georgia. Thereafter he worked for Aramart and Cintas. He was a natural born salesman. He would talk to everyone. He followed all the sales techniques, made follow-up calls, and asked for business. He was a friend to everyone he met and would give you the proverbial “shirt off his back.” He was a good example of the scripture, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

During his working years he lived in Albany, Georgia, Alexander City, Alabama, Decatur, Alabama, and Panama City Florida. He grew up attending First Baptist Church in Panama City and in later years enjoyed attending churches of other denominations. He loved the beach in his younger years. He liked fishing at the marina and enjoyed riding around in his jeep. He called his trips to the marina his salt water therapy. He was a big Tampa Bay Rays fan and liked FSU football. His hobbies included collecting lighthouses and going to yard sales. He was nicknamed the lighthouse man. He liked German Shephard dogs and had one named Max. He has one son, Shane Dewayne Collier (Erin), one daughter, Kim Collier, three grandchildren, Dakota, Cole, Nick, and brother, Kenneth Carroll Collier (Pat).

Visitation will be Friday, March 8, 2019 from 12:30 to 1:30 P.M., and funeral services beginning at 1:30 P.M. at Heritage Funeral Home.
