Robert Henderson “Bob” Adkins (1903-1999), son of Albert G. and Mary “Brooke” (Dingess) Adkins. Bob, born in my hometown of Ferrellsburg, Lincoln County, WV, spent most of his life in Hamlin where he operated a lucrative gas business. In 1984, he was chosen West Virginia Oil and Gas Man of the Year. I first met Bob in March of 1995. I really miss him.
