“Dad would leave for work every day with a smile,” recalls Barbara Askins of her father, James Edward “Stick” Askins, pictured here with his wife, Virginia Ruth Askins. “He loved working at FPU – he always worked while mom stayed home and took care of us.” Mr. Askins passed away in 1996, while his wife died in 2006. They had five children, Brenda Gail of Meridianville and Claudia, Anita, Barbara, and James Edward (Ed) Askins Jr., all of Fayetteville.
