Adkinson, Ruel

On August 7th, 1927, the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jean Adkinson and took from them their loving son Ruel. He was born and reared in this community and was loved by all who knew him and he will be sadly missed by his many friends. He was born August 10th, 1906, and died August 7th, 1927. All through the long eight weeks of suffering Ruel was so patient and kind. He never suffered so much but what he always gave each and every one a kind word and a happy smile. The sweetest and best consolation of all is that on Sunday morning, July 23rd, 1927, he turned his back on earthly things and gave his life to God. He from that day was so beautiful you could just see the glory in his poor little bony face. It is so hard to give him up, but God always knows best. It is such a consolation for his poor heart- broken parents and sweet wife that he has left behind him to know that they will meet him on that beautiful shore where partings come no more. It is so sad to give up our loved ones whom we have lived with here on earth so long. It almost breaks our hearts to know that never again on this earth can we meet them again. But all was done for him that loving hands could do, and God had a better work for him where the soul will never die. Ruel leaves a heart-broken wife and two little children, his father and mother, two brothers and many other relatives and a host of friends to mourn his death. Our hearts go out in deepest sympathy to them.

Ruel was laid to rest in New Hope Cemetery and the funeral service was conducted by Rev. Frank Adcock. A host of relatives and friends attended the funeral and his grave was sweetly decorated with beautiful flowers. "A precious one from us is gone; a voice we love is stilled; a place is vacant in his home which never can be filled. God in His wisdom has recalled the boon His love had given, and though the body slumbers here, the soul is safe in Heaven. Written by his cousin, Eura McGuire and Gale Robinson.

Aikman, Bruce "Scott"

Bruce "Scott" Aikman was born on February 26, 1960, in Hope, Arkansas, to Bruce Lynn Aikman and Juanita Gilbert Aikman. On the morning of September 10, 2016, at the age of 56, Scott went to be with his Lord, and was united with his dad and his grandparents, all of whom he loved very much. Scott graduated in 1978 from Midway High School in Waco, Texas, and was at the top of his class. He participated in football in high school and took shop classes. When he wasn't in school, Scott was playing his guitar and riding motorcycles. After graduating from school, he attended the University of Texas and studied radio, television and film. He stayed in Austin for many years and worked at Heart of Texas Music, a well-known guitar and music shop that was main stomping ground for many musical talents and bands on the Texas music scene. Scott lived in Little Rock and owned Arkansas Organ and Sound. He was mostly a one-man show, managing to engineer and install sound systems in churches, venues and coliseums in Little Rock and throughout the state. His travels took him in and out of many people's lives. In his perfectionist manner, he preferred to do the job right, even if it meant donating a large portion of materials and time necessary to complete the task. Scott never had or wanted a desk job. He preferred working in a not noisy shop, welding, building, creating, and repairing things with his hands. Eventually, Scott moved to Bluffton, to be closer to his mother after his dad passed away. He loved living in the country and collected animals of all sorts - conventional pets like dogs and cats, and more unconventional creatures, like sugar gliders. He was also known to have raccoons, possums, and anything else for which he could provide a temporary home. His first love was always music. Scott had the gift and ability to play almost any musical instrument that he picked up. He wrote and recorded many songs, most of the time playing all of the instruments himself and using a sound mixer to incorporate them into a full-band sound.

Survivors include his mother, Juanita Aikman, of Bluffton, Arkansas; his sister, Lynda West, and her husband, Randal of Waco, Texas; two nephews whom he amused and loved dearly, Lane West of Washington, D.C. and Jamie West of Waco, Texas; his aunt and uncle, Ann and Bill Lewis, of Little Rock, Arkansas, and cousin, Billy Lewis of Little Rock, Arkansas.
