Charles Adkins

Charles “Charlie” Adkins passed away on August 28 th , 2022 at the age of

70, at his home away from home in Tampa, Florida. His battle with

serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage in facing

challenges with humor and a smile. Despite the pain, Charlie stayed

strong and spirited to the end.

Charlie was born on September 4 th , 1951 in Ft. Dix, NJ to his parents

Charles and Evelyn Adkins. The first of 5 siblings being stubborn was

definitely in the cards, but his heart was made of gold.

Charlie served in the U.S. Army, where he met the love of his life, Jody

in Colorado Springs where they were married and had two children.

After retiring from the military, the two settled in WV where he worked

at SCSM in Tool and Die for 17 years. Charlie is a graduate from West

Virginia University and Marshall University. Jody has been by his side

for 46 years and he will now watch over her.

Charlie is preceded in death by both his parents, brother Timothy

Adkins and best friend Max.

Charlie is survived by his loving wife Jody Adkins, son Charles Adkins III,

daughter Linda Skaggs, grandson Kenneth Adkins (Jessica),

granddaughter Khodi Skaggs, great-granddaughter Lorelai Adkins, Sigal

Adkins (Barabra), Terry Adkins (Pat), Susan Nelson (David), as well as,

several nieces and nephews.

He had the gift for gab that’s for sure, if you were blessed to have met

him once, you were friends. Charlie offered a helping hand to family

and friends alike. He enjoyed cooking, barbeques, woodworking and

taxes. If you understand, you know Charlie!

Family and Friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life gathering

on Saturday September 17 th , 2022 anytime from 2-4pm at the Tyler

Mountain Community Center in Cross Lanes WV.
