Patrick was born on February 28, 1946 in Biloxi, Mississippi, the son of Joseph B. and Sylvia Wilkins. Patrick Wilkins was a proud American, a humble man with integrity, morals, honesty, loyalty, and compassion. A son of God, that held his faith and Christian beliefs near to his heart.
A man who knew the importance of family. A true family man, a husband, a father, a brother, a grandfather, a great grandfather, holding as well as many other family titles. He was a patriarch of the family, one who loved each of his family members greatly, showing each a special kind of unconditional love, that made certain there wasn’t a doubt and/or a limit to how much he loved and cared for them.
A man of wisdom and a firm believer in prayer. He was a man who believed in forgiveness and giving the benefit of doubt. A listener, one who truly analyzed your words and feelings, yet a speaker and advisor of situational and life circumstances, giving sound advice, encouragement, and the wisdom of life, that he had gained through his years on earth, through his love and choice of words spoken.
A man of love, first and foremost for his Lord and Shepherd, the King of Kings, and the one and only true living God. Holding the love, he had for his family only second to God. Love for each that he considered a friend and for each person he encountered in his walk-through life. Love for his country and the freedoms it offers, and for the peace he felt while fishing and riding his Harley Davidson.
A proud man, proud of all his accomplishments in life, but most of all, of his family and the people in it. He was a man that prided himself that through the grace of God, all his family knew Jesus and were firm in their beliefs. Giving God the glory and thanking God for the blessing of allowing him to be the one selected to be in each of his family members life.
Patrick Carl Wilkins was a man of many great characteristics and traits, but most importantly he is a man that will be forever missed and loved.
