I will never forget Bob's wit and friendship. He will be sorely missed. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow. Remember the good times always.
Sorry to hear of Bob's passing.Fond memories of him telling everybody about how rough ai was when I ispected his houses and that I wouldn't take a watermelon when he had a train load. We had a great association in the Nashville office
I express sincere sympathy to the Atkins family and pray that God will strengthen and undergird you at this time. Bob and I worked together in the Knoxville and Nashville HUD Offices. He was a true friend and mentor. Bill Dirl, U.S. Department of HUD (Retired)
I will miss Bob. Bob was a wonderful fellow, outstanding manager, and had a great wit. He was funny. I enjoyed the time that I spent with him in HUD. He will be missed. Bob's family is in my thoughts and prayers.
