Melvin Orlando Collins, Jr., was born on November 1, 1993. He passed away suddenly, on October 24, 2020. He was affectionately known to his family and friends as “Luv”.

Melvin received his early education at Marion T. Academy Charter School, in Wilmington, Delaware. He graduated from Pencader Charter High School, with an astounding 4.0 grade point average. He received many awards and recognitions for his academic accomplishments. Melvin was employed as a supervisor with Allied Security for the past six years.

My sincere condolences to the parents, siblings, the entire Collins, White families, and friends. Melvin and Shelia, I know it has been years since we last have seen each other, as a friend Luv's passing touched me too.
