Alvin Akins

January 2, 1941 — December 1, 2023

Alvin Akins, a beloved husband, father, brother, and friend, passed away on December 1, 2023. Born on January 2, 1941, in Gainesville, Florida to Ottis and Ruth Akins, Alvin was a remarkable individual who touched the lives of everyone he encountered.
Alvin's career as a Carpenter showcased his exceptional skills and dedication to his craft. He poured his heart into every project, creating beautiful pieces that will continue to stand as a testament to his talent for generations to come. His meticulous attention to detail unwavering work ethic earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues. Alvin's passion for carpentry shone through in everything he did.
 
While Alvin's professional achievements were impressive, it was his love for his family that defined him as a person. He cherished his wife Kim dearly, and their bond served as an inspiration to all who knew them. Alvin's dedication extended beyond his immediate family; he deeply valued the presence of his children: Curtis (Akins) Hughes, Stephanie (Akins) Wilson (Murry), Katie (Akins) Thompson (Shawn), Leanna (Akins) McGee, Roy Akins (Delta), Amanda Pruitt Weeks, Stephanie Cecil (Jared). His love for them was immeasurable.
 
Alvin’s memories will forever be treasured by eight adoring grandchildren and two great-grandchildren who were fortunate enough to experience the warmth of his heart. He adored each of them unconditionally and took delight in watching them grow and flourish.
 
Beyond his immediate family circle, Alvin held a special place in the lives of those who knew him best. His siblings Sylvia (Akins) Roberts, Patsy (Akins) Avery (Raymond), Faye (Akins) Sheffield (Jimmie), and Gary Akins (Kathy), stood by his side through every twist and turn of life's journey. Together, they shared countless memories filled with laughter, love, and a deep bond that will never fade.
 
Alvin's commitment to his country was evident through his service in both the army and the navy. His unwavering dedication to protect the freedoms we hold dear is a testament to his selflessness and bravery. Alvin's military service exemplified the values he held close to his heart – honor, loyalty, and courage.
 
Outside of work, Alvin cherished spending time outdoors, especially along the serene Suwannee River. Nature allowed him to find peace in its beauty. Alvin's love for the outdoors extended to his faithful companion, Leo, a loyal dog who provided unwavering companionship throughout the years.
 
Though Alvin may have left this world, his spirit will forever live on in the hearts of all those who knew him. His kind nature, gentle touch, and sincere smile will forever be etched in our memories. The impact he had on our lives is immeasurable, as we remember his steady presence during both our times of joy and sorrow.

May we find solace in knowing that he would want nothing more than for us to celebrate his life with love and joy. As we look back on his journey, let us remember Alvin, a loving husband, a nurturing father figure, a loyal brother, and most importantly—a remarkable soul whose legacy will continue to resonate within each one of us.
