Andrew (Andy) Clinton Atkins Jr., an amazing husband, father and “Pop”. He drew his last breath after a courageous, valiant fight with cancer on December 3, 2020. We suspect he did this, to prevent himself from having to watch the Dolphins lose another season. He died peacefully at home with his wife, sons, grandkids and great grand baby next to him.

Andy was born December 29, 1943 in a small town in South Carolina called Swansea-less than a 1,000 people. Most of his childhood, he grew up in Columbia, South Carolina before building his dream home in Lake Worth, Florida. He married his sweetie pie, Michele (Missy- yes nicknames run in this family), in 1967, and together, raised 2 handsome boys.

Andy was a practical man. He dressed in Polo, Tommy Bahama or Hurley t-shirts and his Sperry boat shoes, that was his idea of dressing up. If you asked him, his golf game was almost as good as a pro. He loved being on the water, fishing & boating, he had his Pilots license and traveled around the United States with his family as a Captain of his own plane. There wasn’t anything that Andy wouldn’t do or try.

He built a construction business as an Electrical contractor where he was able to provide a wonderful life his entire family. In addition, he proudly served in the United States Air Force as a Firefighter.

If you knew Andy, you knew he was a kind, genuine man. His sense of humor and personality were infectious, everyone always wanted to be around him. He was a true southern gentleman.

Andy leaves behind a loving family in his wife, Missy, his children, Andy III-“aka Bubba”(& wife Kim), Chris “aka Topher”(& wife Heather), as well as grandchildren Ashley (& husband Michael), Drew and Torrie along with a brand new great-grand baby Levi and his sister Terry Medlin. Andy was the glue of the family and life of our party. The world needs more “Andy’s”, he will be deeply missed and forever our hero.

A celebration of life will be held at Eden Funeral Services in Pompano Beach, Florida on Saturday December 5, 2020 at 11am.
