Obituary for David Ray Adkins

David Ray Adkins, 29, of Lakeview, OH passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at his home.

David was born on August 2, 1988 in Portsmouth, OH, a son of Dennis Adkins of Portsmouth and Cathy Adkins of Lakeview. David was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Carl and Ruby Adkins.

David is survived by two children, Aliea and David, Jr. Adkins, both of Portsmouth, his fiance, Dustany Foreman, a brother, Carl Lee Adkins of Russells Point, OH, a sister, Mary Beth Adkins of Georgetown, OH, maternal grandparents, Mary (Phil) Clem of DeGraff, OH and Lewis Reece of Fresno, CA, and several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

David was a roofer by trade. He was a caring and big-hearted individual who was willing to help others in any way he could. A kid at heart, he was quite the jokester. His favorite things were going to the beach, satisfying his sweet tooth, and listening to music. He loved spending time with Dustany, going to see his family and playing with his nieces and nephews.

Private services were held in his honor.

Arrangements are in the care of Shoffstall Funeral Home, Lakeview. Condolences may be expressed at
