Recently, a SUV struck and killed LeRoy Collins Jr., a retired rear admiral and submariner in the U.S. Navy, department head for Governor Charlie Crist and son of former Florida Governor LeRoy Collins. Collins, 75, was riding his bike at 6 a.m. one morning in Tampa when the SUV struck him. Collins was Gov. Crist’s Executive Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Crist interrupted a Cabinet meeting in the Capitol to make the announcement, drawing audible gasps from many in attendance.
