(7/19/2003)

Robertson E. Collins, more widely known as Robbie Collins, passed away on Friday, May 23, 2003, in Singapore from complications of dengue fever.

For this gifted author, raconteur and one of life's true bon vivants - the world was divided into two: those who had been charmed by Robbie's personalty and those who had yet to have the pleasure of making his acquaintance.

From an early career in theatre management, including a stint serving as the Manager for actress, Ginger Rogers, the Oregon native was an internationally recognized expert in the fields of culture and heritage preservation with a particular emphasis on their relationship to international tourism. Robbie had received numerous awards including an Award of Merit from the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) for his contribution to various task forces and service for two terms as the Chairman of PATA's Development Authority.

A resident of Singapore since 1986, Robbie split his time working on culture preservation and tourism development projects in his native Oregon, Singapore, Indonesia and Western Australia. He served as a Senior Advisor to the Perth-based Questbay Group.

Author of the acclaimed book "A Disorderly Excursion," he was preparing a further two books for publication at the time of his death. In Singapore, he worked tirelessly but privately in support of charities and community projects. With characteristic aplomb, Robbie celebrated his 80th year by appearing for three consecutive nights performing a role in a Chinese Opera.

A memorial service attended by 60 friends and admirers was held on Saturday evening, May 24th at the Mt. Vernon Crematorium in Singapore, bidding farewell to Robbie Collins as he left on yet another disorderly excursion.
