He departed this life, unexpectedly, on Sunday, January 9, 2022. He leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Paris Partridge of Springfield and his father, Michael Collins of Florida. He leaves three children to cherish his memory, Tiffany Partridge of Springfield, Kevin Partridge Jr. of Cambridge, Maryland and Shani Mitchell, Springfield; three brothers, Eric Collins (and Lavette) of Bloomfield, Connecticut, Tyree Holmes of Atlanta, Georgia, and Christopher Williamson of Springfield; three sisters, Alice Collins of Baltimore, Maryland, Sonia Collins of Hartsville, South Carolina, and Tarra Collins of Springfield; three grandchildren; and a host of close cousins, relatives, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Mattie Partridge, whom he lovingly called “Mama”, and his son, Shavon “Tank” Maurice Kelly.
Kevin will life forever in the hearts of his family and his friends.
