Fredrick Decharles Adkins the son of Robert Adkins and the late Mary Alice Morris Adkins was born on December 7, 1958 in High Point, North Carolina and departed this life on Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
Fredrick fondly known as “A.D.” was a loving and jovial person. He had a strong passion for children, especially his grandson, Feronta. He volunteered with Youth AAU teams and The Special Olympics. This allowed him to do what he loved which was traveling. If Fredrick was not coaching sports, he would be watching sports. He was an avid sports fan for basketball and football. His favorite team was the “Detroit Lions”. He was very detail oriented in everything he did. Including occupation as a construction laborer.
Everyone can contest to this by his fashionista style; bright colors, brand oriented and always fit for fashion.
Fredrick was a proud member of First Baptist Church in Charleston, WV under the leadership of Pastor Paul A. Dunn. His ministries were the sound system and protection of his pastor as an armor bearer. Fredrick’s love for the Lord never wavered, his biggest passion in life was God, family, and friends.
