Troopers say 54-year-old Clancy Adkins was shot inside his home on Coon Branch.
Adkins' death was a shock for the family.
"I don't understand how anything like this could ever happen," Beverly Adkins, Clancy's Wife, said.
For three years Adkins battled leukemia.
Adkins' body was sent to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
Family said visitation for Adkins will be Monday and Tuesday at 5 pm for family and 6 pm for friends at Lucas and Son Funeral Home.
The funeral is Wednesday at noon.
