Jack Dwayne Adkins passed away peacefully at his home in Sonora at 9:40 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 24, 2006.
Jack was born in San Angelo, Texas, to Sheeny and Lottie Adkins on Oct. 22, 1937.

He married Nellie Christian on Nov. 15, 1969. Jack worked for the Texas Highway Department for 19 years and later retired from Valero Energy Corp. in 1992 after 17 years of service.

Jack was an avid fisherman, always enjoying taking his kids, nieces and nephews to Camp Allison on the Llano River or to Rough Canyon on Lake Amistad. He also took pleasure in an occasional round of golf, passing the enjoyment on to his kids and later finding the love for the sport was shared by his son-in-law.

He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Nellie; along with his devoted son, Blake, both of Sonora; daughters Rebecca Davis and her husband Ron of Spring, and Christie Adkins of San Angelo; granddaughter Kaitlyn Davis; two brothers, Fred and Frank Adkins, both of Sonora; and one sister, Lou Ann Ehrenburg of Odessa. Jack is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews and cousins who will forever miss his mischievous grin and joking nature.

Funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 27, at the First Baptist Church in Sonora with Brother Jim Stephens officiating. Burial will follow in the Sonora Cemetery.

A special thanks to Laura Blaylock, Veronica Fierro, Rose Marie Hernandez and Mike Andress, along with the entire staff at Hospice of San Angelo. You were a blessing to our family. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Hospice of San Angelo.
