Shane worked as a millwright for RoyOMartin and was an excellent provider for his family. He loved riding his Harley, fishing and cooking for his family and friends. Always cracking jokes, he had a huge sense of humor that brought laughter to everyone around him. His true love was for his family and he would forgo his own desires to fulfill their needs. He will be dearly missed but always remembered as a loving husband, father, son and brother and we know one day we will see him again in Heaven.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Christina Atkinson; daughters, Katilyn Atkinson, Brittney Atkinson, Cloey Atkinson and Kinzee Atkinson; parents, Anthony and Tammy Atkinson; sisters, Charlotte Gardner and husband Larry, Leigh Ann Winkler and husband Kelly, and Kaylee Atkinson; brothers, Derick Atkinson and wife Mary Burgess, Chris Deason and wife Buffie, and Shannon Deason; as well as nieces, nephews and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Warren T. Atkinson and Cletus A. Atkinson.
