OLLIE H. ADKINS
1927 - 2012
Ollie H. Adkins, 85, of Lundale, went home to be with the Lord and his wife, Beulah, on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, from his residence surrounded by his family, following a courageous battle with Cancer.
He was born on April 2, 1927, in Logan County, a son of the late Everett and Della Dean Adkins.
Ollie was a loving husband, father, pawpaw, brother, uncle, and a friend to many. Before his illness, he enjoyed visiting many Churches up and down Buffalo Creek and the Man area to worship with the Lord and his brothers and sisters in Christ. He loved taking pictures and took his camera everywhere. The walls and shelves of his earthly home are filled with the many pictures he has taken of family and friends. Ollie cherished his family and loved spending time with them, especially family gatherings. He had a passion for handing out "Mercy & Grace Coins" created by Kevin Park. He always carried them in his pocket in case he ran into someone he had not given one to, in hopes that that the coin would remind them of his witness for Christ. He was a retired coal miner who worked at Amherst/Arch Coal Company. Ollie served in the U.S. Army.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his loving wife of 60 years, Beulah Roark Adkins, two brothers, Jasper Adkins and Denver Adkins, three sisters, Edna Toney, Myrtle Brumfield, and Delma Dyer, two granddaughters, Chastity Hatfield and Angela Dawn Adkins, and one grandson, Daniel Adkins.
Those left to cherish his memory are his one daughter, Deborah (Glenn) Adkins-Moore of Solon, OH., five sons, James "Duke" (Diana) Adkins of Amelia, VA., Richard (LaDonna) Adkins of Glen Allen, VA., Darrell (Delores "Sissy") Adkins of Lundale, David (Rhonda) Adkins of Accoville, and Robert Adkins of Lundale, ten grandchildren, Leslie Clarke, Timmy Adkins Sword, Erin Adkins, Cindy Johnson, Scott Adkins, Rickara Adkins, Cathy Harvey, Rebekah McCoy, David Adkins II, and Kelsey Moore, five great-grandchildren, Dillon Clarke, Tyler Vance, Kassidy Hawkins, Jacquelyn Harvey, and Lily Stewart, three sisters, Allie Stidhams of Lansing, NC., and Mildred Parsons and Martha Courts, both of Branchland, one brother, Everett Adkins, Jr. of Hamlin, three sisters-in-law, Shirley (Johnny) Sansom of Cyclone, Dolly Wallace of Accoville, and Ella Adkins of Branchland, one brother-in-law, Ervin "Tommy" (Opal) Roark of Robinette, and many nieces and nephews along with a host of other relatives and friends.
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, December 2, 2012, at the Accoville United Methodist Church at Accoville, with Rev. Norman Harvey officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery at Pecks Mill.
Visitation will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Accoville United Methodist Church and one hour prior to services at the church.
Pall bearers will be his sons, grandsons, and son-in-law.
