Freddy leaves to cherish to cherish his memory, 1 brother, Columbus Ray Wilkins, 2 sisters, Alice Lynette Wilkins and Gladys Jean Ward.  He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  Freddy was predeceased by his mother, Helen Wilkins, father, Elijah Wilkins, wife, Patricia Taylor Wilkins and 2 brothers, Elijah Ray Wilkins and Elijah Thomas Wilkins.
