No More Pain, No More Suffering for Me
God Sent an Angel To Set Me Free
Timothy D. Wilkins, son of the late Ernest Leonard Wilkins, Sr. and Ruby O. Wilkins departed this life on Sunday, August 16, 2015 after fighting a hard and valiant battle with leukemia.
Timothy or “Tim” as he was affectionately called by his family spent his early years living in various states as his father was in the Navy. He was an honor graduate of Richland Northeast High School in Columbia, South Carolina and did further study at Duke University. In high school he participated in many school activities and was a member of the wrestling team. He was an avid reader and enjoyed reading and collecting old comic books.
As the oldest of five children Tim was always attentive to the needs of his younger brother and sisters. He was the Big Brother who looked out for them and did not mind taking them to the movies, reading stories or playing games with them. Even as an adult he continued to be supportive and giving to his family. After the death of his father he became very protective of his mother and made sure all of her needs were met. His entire family loved him and will always remember his loving, caring and giving ways.
Timothy was employed at Virginia Paving as a Lab Technician. He was respected by all who knew him.
Timothy leaves to cherish fond memories: his mother, Ruby O. Wilkins, his brother, Ernest L. Wilkins, Jr. (Angela), Sisters Sheila O. Mercado (Jose), Erica Thompson, Ida Wilkins; Nieces, Monique Wilkins, Ayanna Brown, Alysha Brown, Felicia McCroy and Rianna Wilkins; Nephews, Ronald Walton, Robert Wilkins, Christopher Wilkins and Scott Brown; Great Nieces, Amaya Wilkins and Sophia Sheppard; Aunts, Gertrude Cromwell (Julius), Mae Lois Penny (Clyde ), Gloria McClain and many cousins and friends.
