Glen D. Adkins, age 87, of Oshkosh, died Saturday morning, January 5, 2019, at his home in the loving presence of his family. He was born on October 29, 1931, near White Lake, Wisconsin, the son of Norman and Vergie (Fultz) Adkins. Glen attended schools in White Lake, Kentucky, Wausau, and Michigan before moving to Antigo. He enlisted in the US Army in 1948 and was stationed in Trieste, Italy, before being discharged in 1952.
On June 12, 1954, Glen married Joan Belott at the First Baptist Church in Antigo. The couple resided in Marion, Wisconsin, where Glen was employed at Marion Body Works. He returned to Antigo and was employed at the Antigo Daily Journal until 1963 when they moved to Oshkosh. Glen found employment at the Oshkosh Daily Northwestern and was a loyal employee until his retirement in 1993. After retirement, Glen enjoyed his winters spent in Arizona. Two favorite pastimes were playing cards and listening to country music.
Survivors include his wife of 64 years, Joan Adkins; his children, Pattie Adkins, Bill (fiancée, Pamela Farrell) Adkins, Debbie (Wayne) Folske, Sheri (Mick) Becker, Rick (Pam) Adkins, and Cathy Schneider; his grandchildren, Angela (Joe) Jarvis, Adam (Kelly) Schuh, Mandy Adkins, Marissa Adkins, Jason Bartow, Chris (Kim) Folske, Ryan Lichtwald, Brooke (Marty) Koeppl Ashley Neisen, Emily Neisen, Carson Becker, and Riley Schneider; a step-granddaughter, Heidi (Darrell) Wendt; 11 great-grandchildren and 3 step-great-grandchildren; his sister-in-law, Marilyn Belott; many nieces and nephews; special people in his life, Jeff and Karen Schneider, Brenda and Andy Haag, and Doug Dommer, along with many other friends and relatives.
Preceding Glen in death are his parents; four brothers, Ardith, Estle, Allie, and Charlie Adkins; a sister-in-law, Mary Adkins; his mother-in-law, Leona Belott; and his brother-in-law, Jim Belott.

Joan and Family,
It is with heartfelt sympathy to learn of the passing of Glen Adkins. Friendship started with us many years ago and we were truly blessed to have Glen as a friend. From jokes we told, to playing a hand of cards and drinking a few beers we enjoyed each other’s company. We were so blessed to have Glen and Joan attending our anniversary of 40 years just two years back. Rest In Peace Glen. Sympathy - Michael and Suzanne Stadtmueller
