Shawn M. Atkins Obituary

Shawn M. Atkins hoped to attend college in Colorado or Wyoming after returning from Iraq, his father said. "He was just about ready to get out of there," Jim Atkins said. "He was a good kid." The 20-year-old from Parker, Colo., died June 14 of a non-combat injury in Baghdad, Iraq. He was stationed in Hanau, Germany, and was nearing the end of his tour of duty when he died, his father said. Atkins was born on an air base in the Philippines into a military family _ his father served for 20 years. He played football and wrestled in high school before graduating in 2002. The soldier is also survived by his mother, Sukie.
