Timothy “Tim” Ray Akin, age 60, died of a cardiac episode on Thursday, December 3, 2020 in Troy, Alabama. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Edward and Mary Akin. He had been living in the Gainesville, Florida area for the last 32 years.
Tim was survived by his mother, Mary Akin [Somerset, KY], his former wife (of 30 years) Lorrie Lee [Trenton, FL]; his daughter, Brittany (Patrick) Perkins [Trenton, FL]; his son, Joshua Akin [Trenton, FL]; his grandchildren, Jessie, Emberly, and Amelia Perkins [Trenton, FL]; his brothers: Ron (Jackie) Akin [Hebron, KY], Mike Akin [Williamstown, KY], Kevin (Alice) Akin [Park Hills, Kentucky]; six nephews; and two nieces. Tim was preceded in death by his father, Edward Akin.
Tim had a very giving heart and always tried to help those in need when it was within his capabilities. He loved spending time with his family. He attended church with his family for twelve years at New Life Assembly of God in Trenton, Florida, then attended Impact Family Church of High Springs, Florida for seven years. He took pleasure in a variety of artistic endeavors, including photography. He also enjoyed bowling, playing horseshoes, and watching movies.
Hard work and providing for his family were things of great importance to Tim. He was an employee of Levi’s in Erlanger, Kentucky for many years. His other employers included Golden Flake, RC Cola, and Walmart. Over the road truck driving had been Tim’s occupation for the last twenty years of his life. The majority of his time driving was spent being employed by Terry Dicks Trucking (TDT) and Clint Dicks Trucking (CDT).
Due to Covid-19 regulations, we will be holding a private service for immediate family members in Somerset, Kentucky.
Philippians 3:20-21 [Amplified Bible]
“But we are different, because our citizenship is in Heaven. And from there we eagerly await the coming of the Savior the Lord Jesus Christ; who, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself, will not only transform but completely refashion our earthly bodies so that they will be like His glorious resurrected body.”
Due to the unexpected death of Timothy, in lieu of flowers, assistance with memorial service expenses would be greatly appreciated.
