Collins said her son, who also lived in the Pittsburgh area, was only 35 years old and married with four children.
Collins said, “There was a lot left for him. Believe me, he was a great kid. He did a lot for the public.” “He’s a good man. Very good dad.”

“He was a good man and he loved it too,” Collins told CNN. “Anyone who came in contact with him loved him. I still get lessons from people he has worked with and people who have known him for many years.”
Collins noted that his father was vaccinated and recently had his third shot taken, but also recently had a kidney transplant, which he said made him even weaker.
The tragic loss was exacerbated when Collins left the hospital after his father’s death. She said she returned home just when she received a phone call from her daughter-in-law who said she was taking her son to the hospital.
Collins said Brown was not vaccinated and had to go on a ventilator. The next day he died.
Brown was popular and active in the community and, according to Collins, was like an older brother to all his cousins.
“He was doing great, great work,” Collins said.
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help pay for Brown’s funeral and take care of his family. Collins says the support he has received from the community is overwhelming.
“My heart is full of love and joy from all these people who have now given me and my family their support,” he said.
Collins’s restaurant will be closed while his family prepares for the funeral.
