Doug was preceded in death, along with his parents, by wife, Joanne Wilkins; siblings, Johnny Wilkins, Roy Wilkins, Tom Wilkins, Jesse Jackson, and Reverend Wallace Wilkins.
He leaves fond and loving memories to sons, Dr. Douglas Adrian (Farrah) Wilkins of Patterson, NJ, Elder Gregory Wilkins of the home, and Reggie (Jennifer) Wilkins of Campobello, SC; brothers, Broadus (Sylvia) Wilkins of Boiling Spring, SC, and James Wilkins of Inman, SC; sister, Elder Betty Kelly of Inman, SC; grandchildren, Haley (Nicholas) Mead, Isaiah Gregg, Mason Wilkins, and Carter Wilkins; great-grandchildren, Eden Mead and Sophie Mead; special friends, Marcelette Robinson and Linda Littlejohn Johnson; and host of other relative and friends.
