John Collins served as a volunteer English teacher at the middle schools in La Manznailla and in the nearby village of Rebalsito. He was passionate about working with the students and giving them the opportunity to learn English. His students were very fond of him.
John was known for his passion to serve others, his dedication to the pursuit of education, and his love for the outdoors. Before volunteering in La Manzanilla and Rebalsito, John and his wife Katharine were active volunteers in Comala, Mexico.
John was originally from Seattle, Washington. He finished his B.A. at Stanford University in 1964, served in the U.S. Peace Corps, then returned to school, completing his Ph.D. in 1974 at Johns Hopkins University.
John passed away on August 6th, 2014 in Seattle, following a brief illness. He will truly be missed by the many, many, people whose lives he touched!
