October 27, 1987 – November 13, 2018
Ryan Phillip Atkins, 31, lost his courageous seven-year battle with brain cancer and moved to Heaven on November 13, 2018. Ryan was a lifelong resident of Tallahassee.
Ryan is survived by his children, Michael Atkins and Londyn Tyler; his mother, Sonja Atkins; his step-mom, Phyllis Wrench of Brooksville; his brothers, Kris Wrench (Kate) of Gainesville and Matthew Johnson of Savannah; his grandmother, Linda Atkins; and a multitude of much loved family and friends.
Ryan was preceded in death by four of his grandparents; his father, Ken Wrench of Brooksville; and his brother, Peter Johnson of Savannah.
Ryan entered college at age 15 and earned his AA degree from Tallahassee Community College. He was employed in the food service industry until July 2018. Ryan was inspired by TV’s “Chopped” cooking show and enjoyed preparing creative meals in “Chopped” fashion with his family. His children were his heart, his passion. He was at his happiest when spending time with them and spoke many times about how proud he was of them.
