He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Debbie Thompson Adkins of Cordele; his parents, Wayne and Carolyn Adkins of Cordele; three sons and their wives, Andy Spurgeon and Natalie Adkins of Warner Robins, Christopher Chad Adkins of Macon and Justin Moody and Ashlyn Adkins of Vienna; two grandsons, Asa Spurgeon Adkins of Warner Robins and Lucas Moody Adkins of Vienna; two brothers, David Adkins and his wife, Elaine of Shiloh and Wendell Adkins of Cordele; two sisters and their husbands, Lisa and Jason Houston of McDonough and April and Tommy Riddle of Watkinsville; and numerous nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.
