David Alan Adkins, 77 of Troy
Surrounded by family, Dave passed peacefully into eternal life at Koote-nai Health of complica-tions from AL Amyloido-sis and Multiple Myelo-ma. Dave is survived by his ex-wife, Sherrill, daugh-ters Juli Hopfer, Chari (Frank) Lucas, Kelli (Wes) Williams his beloved grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and EJ his constant four legged compan-ion. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers. Born in Libby and raised in Troy, Dave lived life to the fullest from an early age. Dave was a jack of all trades and worked at carpentry jobs, but spent the majority of his work career self-employed at Janet’s May-tag and Laundromat.
He was always up for an adventure, most al-ways took the road less traveled from the local back roads, Alaska, Aus-tralia and countless places in between. Dave touched the hearts of many people along his life journey. He knew no stranger and struck up conversations with all kinds of people, was a great listener, and displayed acceptance and unconditional love. His quirky ways and sayings kept us all laughing on a regular basis. The last 23 years his passion was mentoring and giving of himself to help others in the AA pro-gram. Countless people continue to express sin-cere appreciation for how he helped them learn to live a life of sobriety. A bright spot in our life is gone, Dad, grandpa, g-pa, and friend will be greatly missed. The lack of his presence leaves us with broken hearts but we are grateful for all the won-derful memories.
A celebration of life will be at Dave’s Bull Lake Cabin on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
Condolences may be mailed to 183 Woodway Avenue, Libby, MT.
The family asks to hon-or Dave that you donate of your time, monetarily or in some way to a cause near and dear to your heart.
