Obituary Condolences Gallery

Lee Stewart Atkins, devoted son of Mary Lou Stewart and Marc S. Atkins, took his own life Friday, Oct. 19 in Ann Arbor, MI at the age of 24. He was a proud soldier who served his country with bravery and distinction during a tour in Afghanistan in 2008 to 2009 as a member of the Illinois Army National Guard Bravo Company 1-178 Infantry. A graduate with honors of Oak Park River Forest High School and a history major at the University of Michigan, he was a wonderful, loving son and family member and a deeply devoted friend. We will always celebrate his life, his caring, his generosity, his humor, his genuineness, as a legacy to all he touched in his too short life and to all soldiers and their families wherever they serve. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Unity Temple, 875 Lake St., Oak Park, IL at 5:30 p.m. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made in honor of Lee Atkins to the Wounded Warrior project (https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org) or PO Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.
