Robert “Bobby” Bryan Adkins

Robert Bryan Adkins (known to all as Bobby), age 43, passed away peacefully at his home in Webster, TX. He was born on July 28th, 1979 in Huntington, WV to parents Bryan Adkins and Janet Adkins.

Bobby is survived by both his parents and Stepmother Lane Adkins; Brother Christopher Adkins; Maternal Grandfather Edward Smith; Paternal Grandmother Erma Adkins; and many other very special family members and friends that he always considered family.

When his nation called, he answered by joining the US Navy. He become an electronics technician and trained to work with the navel modular communications system and as a high frequency radio group systems technician. He was awarded a 2nd Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and was an Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist.

Bobby had many hobbies, but he was most passionate about building RC cars, planes, and anything that could move, float, or fly. He enjoyed working with any and all tools, taking things apart and putting them back together (multiple times), and more than anything was an avid gun collector and enjoyed gunsmithing.

Friday January 20th, Bobby will receive full Military Honors by the US Department of Defense at 9:45am at the National Cemetery in Houston (10410 Veterans Memorial Dr Houston, TX 77038). Attendees are asked to begin lining up in Lane 2 no earlier than 9:30am.

Additionally, Saturday 1/21, we will have a Memorial Service at Crowder Funeral Home in Webster, TX at 2pm. (Address 111 E Medical Center Blvd, Webster, TX 77598)

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in Bobby’s honor are welcome to do so to the Paralyzed Veterans of America, of which Bobby was a longstanding member. (Link: )

Reception immediately after memorial service Saturday to all who wish to attend at the home of Bryan and Lane Adkins.

All are welcome to attend either service.


  1. Bobby was so kind and so wonderful to all of us when Mark was injured. Not only visiting him in ICU, where the first thing he told him was, โ€œMark, you can either get up and live your life, or lie there and die, itโ€™s your choice!โ€ but also brought him his favorite food from Whataburger to TIRR! Then he and his mom, Janet, brought Mark so many things that makes his life in a wheelchair easier. He will always be in our hearts as a special friend. He will be missed!
