Dickie Akin Obit

The Man, The Myth, The Legend.

Dickie Lee Akin, 66, finished his mission on earth January 31st, 2023 at his home in Redwater, TX.

The mold was broke when Dickie was born June 15th, 1956 in Hobbs, NM. He attended Redwater school and graduated from Texas High.

Dickie was a retired heavy machine operator from Day & Zimmerman. Owner and operator of Big A’s Klean Kans. In his early years he worked as a ranch hand for Jimmy Clem, Brown & Root services, and a furniture mover for Home furniture. He was a skilled handyman, mechanic, huntsman, mudding professional, grill master, story teller, and jokester. He was a devoted husband, father, pops, friend, and hero. He looked forward to his visits from his grandchildren while instilling family values and love.

When Dickie took off for that big pool party in the sky, he left behind his son Michael Akin, daughter and son-in-law Rikki and Juan Galdamez, daughter Cristi Akin, wife JoAnn Akin, and 7 beautiful grandchildren Aden and Alijah Love, Mattie Power, Avery Galdamez, Chiles, Emma, and Joleen Akin.

He is now happily reunited with his sister Cissy Shoulders, and parents Edgar & Helen Akin.

Friends and Family will be gathering at 138 CR 1214 Texarkana, TX 75501 on Saturday February 11th 2023 between 2-6pm to celebrate the home going of a life well lived for Dickie.
