Obituary

Herman Clemmons “Clem” Wilkins, 91, of Callao passed away on Monday, March 23, 2020 with his family at his side. A life-long resident of Callao, Clem was the son of the late Herman George Wilkins and Elsie Brown Wilkins. He was the beloved husband of June Dawson Wilkins, with whom he enjoyed sixty-three years of marriage. Clem was a Lineman and eventually a supervisor for Virginia Power where he retired after 34 years of service. Herman was also a proud veteran of the United States Army.

Surviving Clem are his wife, his sons: Barry Clemmons Wilkins (Darlene) and Roger George Wilkins (Stacey) and his daughter Sharon W. France (Mark). He is also survived by his brother Harold Ray Wilkins (Virginia Mae); his sister Esther Wilkins Haynie; his six grandchildren: Shawn France (Sarah), Jessica Murray (Ross), Joshua Wilkins, Rachael Hand (Patrick), Sawyer Wilkins and Bailey Wilkins; and his six great-grandchildren: Declan France, Drake France, Pierce Murray, Haden Murray, Brayden Wilkins, and Ella Hand. The grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the lights of his life. Clem was a true family man.

Clem dearly loved his church, Bethany Baptist. He served as a deacon there for over fifty years, was the Bethany cemetery sexton and served as the Sunday School secretary as well. He also loved to be outside and his outdoor talents were numerous. He grew a fantastic garden and fed his family as well as many in the community with his delicious home-grown vegetables. He adored Purple Martins and attracted many of them to his yard with the houses he made for them.

A private funeral will be held for Clem at Bethany Baptist Church and a memorial to celebrate his life will be held at a date to be announced in the future. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you honor Clem’s deep love for his church by making a donation in his name to the Bethany Baptist Church Cemetery Fund, P.O. Box 641, Callao, VA 22435.

Many memories of Clem. One that my husband, Ron, brought up that took us right back to that time....we always used to
go to Afton Mountain in the fall for apple picking and that wonderful apple butter which was made right in the copper cauldrons.
Also, stopped at the county store for cheese/crackers and........pickled eggs. Well, when Clem heard about those pickled eggs, he
got the biggest kick out of that. Don't remember if he liked them or not but always would kid Ron about them anything we were
together.

Clem was a tremendous example of love and giving to his family many memories shared through the years. Perfect picture
of him in his garden as that's where he got so much enjoyment.

Remember this gentle, sweet man.

Clem was one of my Heros of the Faith, serving as an example of what a man of God should be to his wife, his family, his Church, his community and his God. It is sad to know I will no longer see him here on Earth, but I am sure and confident that I will see and be with him forever when we all gather together in the Lord's presence in Heaven. Goodbye for now and thank you for your example you left for us to follow.
