Mr. Gregory Wilkins, 51, of 1317 Parnell Road, Lumberton was born June 29, 1962 and departed this life on Sunday, December 8, 2013, at his home. He was the son of the late Mr. Weltobn C. Wilkins, Jr. and Mrs. Merdis Brewer Wilkins and was also preceded in death by a brother: Mr. Jason Ray Wilkins.
Mr. Wilkins was a devoted husband, father and great friend to many who encountered him. Set aside from his family, his greatest passion was his church and singing for the Lord. When time permitted, he loved fishing and playing golf with his dearest friends. In his last days, he continued to lift others up through songs of praise. Heaven has truly gained an angel.
