Obituary

Lawrence Norman Collier, of North Adams, formerly of West Roxbury, passed away on January 22, 2019 due to congestive heart failure. Larry was born on August 10, 1955 in Holbrook, Massachusetts to Norman and Marie Collier.
Larry’s favorite activity was spending time on his boat fishing, which he found meditative and peaceful. He was an avid Patriots and Red Sox fan, and followed all the local sports teams faithfully, spiritedly, and loudly. He loved old John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies and watching TV police and crime dramas. Larry enjoyed holidays and birthdays and spending time celebrating them with his family. He cherished all the special times he spent with his granddaughter Morgan and his daughter Becky.
Larry was a social worker for over 35 years working with mental health, substance abuse, and adolescent concerns. Larry was dedicated to his clients and really cared. He would go the extra mile for their mental health and wellbeing. As stated by another clinician who worked with him, “Larry Collier is a very talented and creative clinician. He deeply cares about the people he works with and has a profound commitment to helping. In fact, Larry not only leads the horse to water, but helps them drink.”
Larry is survived by his children, Rebecca Huntoon and her husband Joseph, Ray Rapalo Collier, and Brian Collier; and his granddaughter, Morgan Huntoon. He is also survived by his mother, Marie T. Collier; sisters Donna Collier Annesi, Ann-Marie Flavin, Denise Collier, and Dianne Casey. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Larry’s life will be held at Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, West Chapel, 521 West Main St., North Adams on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 beginning at 12:00 p.m. To add to the Book of Memories, please visit www.flynndagnolifuneralhomes.com

To the Collier Family, My condolences to the Family on the loss of Larry. I enjoyed many good times with him with he on the trombone or guitar and me on the trumpet. He was also a rather frequent visitor to me when I worked at St. Elizabeths in the early 2000s. Always a good sense of humor and a quick and honest laugh, he was always a guy who enjoyed life. Sincerely, John Holiver
