Obituary for Robert Adkins

Robert "Rob" Adkins, known affectionately as "Bear" to many old friends, was born on June 14, 1962 in Gray Hawk. He departed this life Thursday, August 17, 2017 at the Compassionate Care Center in Richmond, being 55 years of age. Rob was preceded in death by his parents, Sherman Lee Adkins and Dollie Elizabeth (Neeley) Adkins along with one infant sister, Darlene Adkins. Rob lived in Adkinstown most of his life.
Rob is survived by three children: Jamie (Joshua) Ward of Lexington, Bobby Adkins of Richmond, and Amy (Alicia) Adkins of London. Even though they were divorced, he was still very close with his ex-wife, Vella (Hays) Adkins of Gray Hawk who cared for him until the very end. He is also survived by three siblings, Josephine (Junior) Smith of Annville, Jimmy John (Brenda) Adkins of Tyner, and Carol (Mike) Harrison of Annville.
Rob had a great passion for the outdoors, hunting, fishing, gardening with his daughter, Amy, and working around his property. He enjoyed working with his hands and had a great many trades. He loved his extended family and friends, his little puppies, Scrappy and Brady, watching classic westerns, and just riding around with his neighbors. Rob was hardworking and always willing to help others in need.
As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be sent to the Compassionate Care Center in Richmond.

Graveside service 11:00 AM Sunday, August 20, 2017 at the Adkinstown Cemetery with Bro. Carroll de Forest officiating. Lakes Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
