He was born to Dr. and Mrs. Kenneth Wilkins in Goldsboro, N.C.

He graduated from Goldsboro High School in 1983, and attended Appalachian State University, and graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in civil engineering.

John is survived by his best friend and wife of 28 years, Pat Merritt Wilkins; and his children, Jackson and Emma, as well as Lilly O’Brien all of Raleigh.

John was all about sitting on the dock in Beaufort, fishing for whatever would bite and, of course, random animal data and the occasional rattlesnake. Just ask and everyone will tell you how he was always willing to help out, no matter what.

Also surviving John are his four siblings, Ken and Dru Wilkins, Hannah and Charlie Rouse, Brandt Wilkins and David Alexander and Charles and Sandra Wilkins.

His Mount Olive family also survives him, Betty Hughes Wilkins, Jay and Pam Wilkins, Doug and Geri Wilkins, Billy and Barbara Wilkins and Randall and Gina Wilkins.

John – an incredible husband, father and friend – always kept his people close. Now we must do the same with his memory.
