He was born January 18, 1959 in Charleston, West Virginia to the late Sylvia (Davis) and Sebert Adkins.

Gene was a perfectionist in his work, delivering professional results in all of his roofing and drywall construction jobs. He loved all things outdoors- especially fishing, hunting, kayaking, camping and 4-wheeling. One of his favorite events was "Family Poker Night" in which he enjoyed taking the money of his family with his great poker playing skills.

He is survived by four sisters, Mary Susan Haas of Needville, TX, Linda Christine Brightbill of Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Sandra Gay Papp of Poland, NY and Anita Yvonne Adkins of Mansfield; a brother, Larry Wayne Adkins of Mansfield; several nieces and nephews, Valerie, Roy, Lori, Alex, Stormie, Grayson, Hunter, Jarrett and Willow; two aunts, Patricia Meister and her husband, Dean and Thelma Jerden; and special friend, Jenetta Barnhart.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his long-time companion, Donna Gray.

The family invites friends to share memories of Gene, Friday, August 9, 2013 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the home of his aunt, 671 Woodcrest Drive, Mansfield. Wappner Funeral Directors is privileged to serve the family of Gene Adkins.
