  • Tanner passed away on October 22, 2020 in Allentown, PA. He was born December 18, 1991 in Sandy, UT to John Collins and Raquel Aposhian.

    If you knew Tanner, you would know that he had an amazing sense of humor. He was so handsome. His smile would light up even the darkest room. With the kindest eyes, he made everyone feel as though they were a long-lost friend.

    He loved camping, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, football and all things that would keep him outdoors. He loved the sun on his face and peaceful walks through the Rose Garden Park.

    Tanner was an amazing and interesting cook. He loved buffalo sauce, crab and all things seafood. He was insanely smart, artistic, loved music and enjoyed playing the guitar.

    His greatest joy in life was his son Carter and spending time with his nieces and family. His family loved him more than he will ever know. Rest in peace Tanner Bug!

    Tanner is survived by his son Carter EJ Collins, father John Collins, mother Raquel (David) Aposhian, sisters Brittani Collins (Dustin), Gracie Aposhian, Sharee Wright (Colt), brothers Jaxon Aposhian and Ryan Aposhian, nieces Havalee Coy, Isabella Coy, Lucee Coy and Hazel White. Preceded in death by his grandfather Roy Groesbeck and great-great aunt Lois Groesbeck.

    Hello, I work at Weldship Corporation in Bethlehem, PA., where Tanner's obituary was recently posted on an info board near the shop that I work in. My deepest condolences to friends and family. My interactions with Tanner were always warm and genuine. I felt a very great respect and affection for him immediately. I was able to give him several rides home to his apartment in inclement weather and he was so gracious. In his work, he was safe and displayed commanding skills. Apt and aware. An asset to his environment. I find it difficult to adequately express my sense of sorrow. His presence I noted whenever we met with smiles, bumping fists, or firm, cordial handshakes. I looked forward to seeing him. His life touched mine. Thank you for allowing me this space to share this. I am so sorry for your loss. My warmest regards, Frank Pavlick
