Default Steve Adkins (2 Grumpy) - RIP brother

It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of Steve Adkins (2 Grumpy). In 2005, Steve and I were new to the Corvette ownership world at the time and being a CF member. He had a red 91 coupe and I had a red 96 coupe. Steve was the first person I met on the CF in the Southeast region area. We became friends almost immediately. Through the years we both experienced the pleasures of owning C4's; C5's and C6's about the same time. We started working on the cars by modding the cars to our taste, attending car shows and going to cruise in. A few times over the years we traveled to Bowling Green to hang out at the plant or during the bash.

Steve was a Godly man that loved his wife (35 years); kids (2 girls and 2 adopted boys; 5 grandkids); he loved his church family; work family and many car buddies that he had met while on this site. Jesus gained another angel today! Steve will be greatly missed by all !!

RIP 2 Grumpy (Steve Adkins)

Steve will definitely be missed. He was a good man with a huge heart and willing to help anyone, anytime. People as good as Steve are hard to find and I am glad to call him my friend. He will be dearly missed. He leaves a wonderful and loving family and I only hope for them the best. As with Tim, we have had many Corvette experiences together and truly value them all.
So hard to lose the good ones.

Thanks Mark! I remember this pic like it was yesterday as it was taken at the Bartlett Cruise-in. Those were great times when we all had our Corvettes. I really enjoyed the time we did the photo-shoot with all the cars.
