Collin Lee Schwind
1972 - 2018
Collin Lee Schwind passed away peacefully in his sleep on Jan 7, 2018. He was born on Dec 9, 1972 in Alpena, Michigan. He will be very missed by all of his family and friends. He is survived by his mother, Debra Mischley, and many cousins, nieces, nephews mainly residing in the Michigan area.
Collin was an avid fisherman and fished commercially for several years later on in his life, and very much enjoyed being on the water where he was most happy. He also worked as a carpenter, ran his own business as a handyman and helped many people in the area with their odd jobs. Collin moved to Santa Barbara at 27 where he made many friends who over time he considered family. He was a very avid music lover and especially liked reggae music and enjoyed attending concerts with his friends and neighbors. Collin was always a very caring person who would go out of his way to help out people less fortunate than himself, even though he was never overly wealthy himself. He will be especially missed by Joyce Edgar who he resided with, and helped maintain her yard and property. If you want to judge Collin by wealth he was the richest man I knew because of the friends he made and had.
