Christopher Lee Akins, 25, was born in Alexandria, Louisiana on December 1, 1989 and passed away in Anniston, Alabama on October 16, 2015. He was a well-loved son, brother and friend. He always made everyone smile, and he was given the nickname Smiley. The name Christopher means one who bears Christ and Chris bore Christ to all of his friends everywhere he went. His friends even said that his motorcycle was his church. The name Lee means "dweller by the wood or clearing," and there's nowhere else Chris would rather be than enjoying spending time outside. By trade he was a welder, but there was little that he couldn't take apart and most of the time put back together. He attended Gadsden State Community College and received a Certificate in Welding Technology with Distinction in 2009. He enjoyed riding dirt bikes and motorcycles, and his racing number was #42. He was an avid fisher, hunter, and an excellent marksman. A phenomenal cook, his signature dish of chicken and shrimp fettucine was so amazing that you couldn't stop eating it and was given the title "Suicide Fettucine." He wasn't afraid to experiment in the kitchen to create amazing recipes, and really, he didn't seem to be afraid of anything at all. He is survived by his mother, Carolene Devon Akins, of Anniston; his sister, Misti Short (Andrew), of Northport; grandparents Landon and Shirley Giles, Eugene and Betty Martin, and Carolyn Hall, all of Newport, Tennessee. He was preceded in death by his father, Dennis E. Akins. Pallbearers are Eric Benefield, Harley Lindsey, Daniel Milner, Nick Robertson, Adam Thornton, Blake Vaughan, Brian Vaughan and Austin Walker. The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, October 22, 2015, in the chapel of Miller Funeral Home in Oxford with the service being officiated by Pastor Timothy "Bubba" Massey of Church of the Highlands. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Wednesday evening October 21, 2015 from 6-8 p.m. Burial will follow in Dogwood Trail Memorial Gardens. Chris will be forever missed by those who knew him and his influence will never be forgotten. Miller Funeral Home & Crematory Oxford, AL (256) 831-4611 A Brown Service Authorized Funeral Home.
