Warren C. “W.C.” Edkins, 81, of Lakeland, Florida, formerly of Bellefonte, passed away on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at Winter Haven Hospital in Winter Haven, FL. Born on April 1, 1938, in Oneida, New York, he was the son of the late Charles H. and M. Adelaide (Case) Edkins. On June 26, 1975, he married the love of his life, Sandra (Argyle) Edkins, who survives at home after sharing 43 years of marriage together.

Warren was a graduate of Rome Free Academy in Rome, New York and attended Manlius Military School. After relocating to Central Pennsylvania, he worked as the manager for Imperial Motor Inn and the Happy Valley Motor Inn in State College until his retirement in 2001.

In addition to his wife, Sandra, he is survived by two children, Derek Wood and Stacey Hoffman (Michael), all of Bellefonte, and two grandchildren, Ryleigh Winters Bonds (Zachary) and Jordan Aubin. Also surviving is one brother, Neil Edkins (Phyllis), of Henrietta, NY, and Cynthia Anno (James), of Milton, DE.

Warren was very athletic in his younger years. He enjoyed bowling and baseball, being particularly proud of his baseball team being NY State Champs. Although he only had two grandchildren, he had an overwhelming love for all his “grand-animals” over the years. He could light up a room with his contagious smile. Warren saw the good in everyone he met and loved them all. He developed many friendships over his years. He will be remembered for his friendly, happy and outgoing personality.

A Celebration of Life and burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc. in Bellefonte.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Light & Life Free Methodist Church at 5730 Deeson Road, Lakeland, FL 33810.

Dear Sandy and family,
During my five years as being your pastor a the Light and Life Free Methodist Church, Warren was a special highlight. He always had an encouraging smile, and it was my additional joy to know his name was the same as my father's. I already miss him terribly. May our Lord bring you many wonderful memories as each new day unfolds.

Stacey, Mike & "Mom",
You have all been in my thoughts and prayers! I was shocked to hear the news. "Dad" was always so friendly, supportive and nice. I loved seeing all of you together and enjoyed the times we saw each other. He was such a joy to be around. Praying for comfort in all the great memories you have!
