Roger Lee Adkins went home to heaven to celebrate Christmas with Jesus on Dec. 12, 2020 due to complications with COVID-19. Roger was a machinist by trade and was a handyman who loved helping his neighbors, family and friends with everything and anything. Roger enjoyed martial arts and obtained a 3rd degree black belt. Through martial arts he made and cherished many life-long friendships. He also enjoyed long walks at Silver Creek Park. His biggest joy was his family and especially the babies. Dad accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior in his early years and taught us how to love the Lord. We can't Thank you enough Dad for that. He was preceded in death by his father Elmer and mother Pauline, also his brothers John and Paul. He is survived by his daughter, Candida Riffle (Brian), his son, David Adkins (Janetta) and his daughter, Cinthia Stukvosky (Scott); grandchildren Amber Riffle (Andy), Bethany Riffle (Jeff), Joshua Riffle, Danielle Boyes (Evan), Brooklynn Adkins (Ambrose), Natalee Adkins (Eddy), Scott Stukvosky Jr. and great grandchildren, Chloe, Jeffrey, Aiden, Lucas, Bryson, Tristan and 2 precious babies yet to arrive. Also surviving is his brother Eugene and family and sister Joyce and family, ex-wife Beverly, special friends Don (Pat) Wagner and family, the Wilbur Street clan, and many other friends, too many to name. We want to Thank Dr. Singh, Dr. Orusanu, Dr. Keith and the staff at Magnolia Care Center of Sanctuary Health for loving and caring for Dad especially during this most difficult time. Cremation has taken place and no services are being held at this time due to COVID-19 but a memorial walk through Silver Creek Metro Park is being planned for Spring 2021. Please remember COVID-19 is real and it kills. Follow all safety measures to prevent the spread. If not for yourself than for those you love.
