Brian Anthony Wilkins
Brian Anthony Wilkins, 55, passed away quietly in the familiar surroundings of his home of 10 years in Beech Grove.
He was the fifth child (of seven) born to Donald L. and Mary Margaret (Swartz) Wilkins, originally of Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Beech Grove.
He was a 1976 graduate of Roncalli High School, where he was active in the marching band and played the saxophone.
Brian enjoyed the challenges of working at his job and was retired from Rolls-Royce after 31 years of service.
He loved tinkering with his vintage car during his retirement years and was always quick to help others in need.
He was preceded in death by his mother and is survived by his father, Donald Lee Wilkins; and six siblings, Christopher Lee (Christy Padgett) Wilkins, Patrick Michael (Rita) Wilkins, Terry Joseph (Dana) Wilkins, Donald Thomas (Leigh) Wilkins, Julie Marie (Tim) Zahn and Jeffrey Louis (Leslie) Wilkins.
