Obituary for Gerald Lynn Adkins

Gerald Adkins, 56. of Cloverport passed away at his residence on March 5, 2019 surrounded by many people who loved him.
Gerald was born November 9, 1962 in Perry County, IN to the late Henry F. and Carolyn Fulks Adkins. He was a Jack of all trades and a master of most. Gerald worked as a self-employed carpenter for most of his life, but that is very little of the life that he lived. He was a mechanic for many years and loved to tinker with mechanical items. Anything to do with his hands, he did and did well.
While he loved to work building things and repairing things, he also loved to play hard. He enjoyed getting out on the creek in his boat and fishing, camping and anything to do with being outdoors. He also enjoyed bartering, trading and going to flea markets and auctions. Music was also a big part of his life, in short, he loved about everything, and one of his highlights of hanging with his friends in town, whom he had many.
Gerald may not have ever been married, but he raised many children and considered them his own. He had so much love to give everyone, that he gave it freely to the ones that needed the love.
Leaving behind to celebrate the life and love that he lived, is his soul mate, Nona Smith and so many others that in fear of not mentioning everyone, and if everyone was mentioned, it would take a novel, it will suffice to say that he was loved by many.
A service celebrating his life will be held 1:00 pm Saturday, March 9, 2019 at Cloverport Funeral Chapel with one of his friends, Gerald Wethington doing the eulogy and remembering Gerald. According to his wishes, after the service he will be cremated, and his cremains put to rest in Cloverport Cemetery. Friends and family will gather at the funeral home from 11:00 am until service time to pay their final respects for a great friend.
In lieu of flowers, it has been requested that donations be made to the funeral home to assist in the final arrangements for Gerald.
