He was born in Rome, GA on October 5, 1942, a son of the late Henry Akins and the late Louise Long Akins. Mr. Akins was employed by Rockmart Nursing Home for ten years until his retirement. He was previously employed with Murata for twenty years and Goodyear Mill for fifteen years. Mr. Akins was a member and Deacon at Morning View Baptist Church. He was ordained in 1980 at Friendly Baptist Church. Mr. Akins will be remembered as a loving husband, daddy and paw paw; and a hard-working man who always put the needs of his family before himself. He was always there to help out any way he could. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. But he is rejoicing with the Lord, as he has passed over to the other side.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his sisters: Charlotte Akins and Patty Akins; and brothers: Donald Akins and Ronald Akins.

Funeral services will be held Monday, December 31, 2018 at 2:00 pm in the Morning View Baptist Church with Rev. Jeff Hulsey, Rev. Barry Snapp and Rev. Danny Tucker officiating. Interment will follow in the Northview Cemetery.

Pallbearers will include: Brandon Wingo, Jeremy Mallett, Derek Mann, Cason Mann, Jake Thompson and Mark Harris. Deacons of Morning View Baptist Church will serve as honorary pallbearers.
