Mr. Richard "Dick" E. Wilkins Jr.

Saturday, December 29, 2012
My sons last week went out on the internet to find what had happened to Mr. Wilkens who had been their Boy Scout leader out on Kwajalein and found his obituary.

Obviously he made a significant impact on their growing up.

I enjoyed trading lessons with him -- I taught him to sail and he graciously taught me to fly. It never bothered him that our deal benefited me more than him. Both gave us time together.

I had the honor of being Mr. Wilkin's physical therapist during his recent illness. He was a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed hearing about his exciting life experiences! I was unable to attend his funeral service but I think of him often. My oondolences to his family.

My condolences are with your Family. Dick was a great inspiration for my son Don Burroughs while in scouting and beyond. He will be greatly missed by everyone whose lives he touched.

Dick was such a caring and giving person who loved everyone, especially the kids. He took our son and daughter to eat, play games and have a good time. He was a great teacher and Scout leader as well as a friend to all. We pray for your comfort in knowing he is in a better place and teaching someone about something; he was so knowledgeable. with prayers, Jerry & Jean McClean

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family of Richard. Unfortunatelly I have not met all of Richards family except Diana. I had the priviledge of working at the Guilford County Sheriff Department the whole 10 years he was employed. And he was a fine officer and friend, however after he left the department, I did not see him but once or twice. Due to prior commitments I will be unable to attend the viewing or funeral. My prayer's are with Diana, and the family & friends of Richard. "God Bless"
