Jim T. Collias. Devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather to Mary Collias (wife), Diana (John Palumbo) and Art Collias (Christina) (children), Angela, Christina, Michelle, Michael and Dimitri (grandchildren), Jesse, Niko and Vincent (great grandchildren).
Jim was born and raised in West Philadelphia and spent his adult years with his wife of 60 years in Drexel Hill. Jim served our country proudly during the Korean War. He spent his working years in the restaurant industry at various establishments in the suburban and Philadelphia area, including the Bellevue Stratford Hotel.

Jim will be sorely missed for his good humor and quick wit.
