David Ray Atkin

David Ray Atkin 11/20/49 ~ 10/20/03  A wonderful man was taken from us too early due to complications of diabetes. Dave was two weeks away from receiving a kidney transplant that we hoped would restore to us the fun energetic man that we will remember him to be. Dave was the first son born to Howard R. Atkin and Christine (George) Edmunds. He is preceded in death by his father. Dave will live on in the hearts of his loving wife, Cathy, his two daughters Stacy (Israel) Jaramillo, Alexandra, and his son Dustin. He was a super grandpa to Josey, Jaden, Elijah, Makenzie and September. His family includes sisters Connie (Don) Conroy and Carol (Terry) Anderson, brothers Christopher (Mary Ann) and Howard (Tracy) Atkin Jr., plus numerous extended members who will miss him dearly. Dave was a registered nurse for home health care. He always went beyond what was needed with his patients and they all were very close to him. With his witty sense of humor, even through hard or painful times Dave could crack a joke and make everyone laugh. He found humor in everything. We know he is laughing now. The love that he gave to his family will remind us to cherish each other every day. Please join us for a celebration of Dave's life at his favorite restaurant, The Pagoda, 26 North E. Street from 5 until 7 p.m. Sunday, October 26th where a light buffet will be served. In lieu of flowers, Dave's children would like to encourage you to make a donation to the American Diabetes Association. Your donation could change lives. Thank you. Dad, we love you. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13
