SOUTH POINT-Jackie "Jack" Thomas Adkins, 69, of South Point, Ohio, went to be with the Lord at home, after a courageous battle with cancer, Saturday, February 20, 2021. He was born October 21, 1951 in South Point, Ohio to Rev. George Adkins, Sr., and Edna Sellards Adkins. Surviving are his wife Toni Briggs Adkins, son Chad and wife Lisa, sisters Monie Adkins Day and Patricia Adkins Stamper (George), 7 grandchildren (Isabel, Abigail, Samantha, Emma, Theodore, Lauren, and James), and Jimmy Salyer, lifelong childhood friend. He is preceded in death by siblings Rev. George Adkins, Jr., Rev. Frank Adkins, Ronald Adkins, Billy Adkins, Larry Adkins, Rodney Dale Adkins, Barbara Jean Scarberry, and Betty Jo Mays. Jack served our country in the U.S. Air Force and owned a floral shop for several years where his arrangements brightened many days. He retired from the Lawrence County CAO. Jack saw beauty in the simple things. Born and raised on a picturesque farm, he loved the outdoors, raised horses, and bred and trained champion Beagles. He enjoyed his morning cup of coffee and talking with the love of his life, Toni. He was a vibrant personality with a heart of gold. His calming demeanor will be missed by all who knew him. The family would like to thank Dr. Inoshita, his staff, and SOMC Hospice for the great care provided to Jack. A celebration of life will be held at the family's convenience. Crockett L. Reed Funeral Home in South Shore, Kentucky is in charge of the arrangements.
