A fixture in Harriman died Wednesday.
Clyde Collins was a Harriman city judge for many years and a Roane County commissioner from Sept. 1, 1986, until Aug. 31, 1994. Typically energetic and charming, the distinguished World War II veteran had been ill recently.
Harriman Mayor Chris Mason said Collins was a family friend and respected member of the community.
“When you look around Harriman, he’s done a lot of good things,” Mason said. “He’s always wanted to help people.”
