Thomas Adkins

April 26, 1946 – June 28, 2021

Thomas Michael Adkins, 75, of Sweet Home, died June 28, 2021 following a two-year battle with heart disease and other physical problems.

He was born April 26, 1946 in Huntington, W.V., to Edward Lee and Thelma Lee (Blankenship) Adkins. 

Family was the love of Mr. Adkins’ life – especially Sharon, who went everywhere and did everything with him. Baseball came next, as he coached for 20 years, was an umpire, and played in leagues until he was 58 years old. 

He worked two years for NASA, 10 years at U.S. Plywood and 25 years for FI-SERVE in Corvallis. 

Mr. Adkins is survived by his wife of almost 55 years, Sharon; sons Michael and Robert; and one grandson. 

Family services will be arranged later. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to your local school baseball team.

Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
