Terry Keith Akin was a retired graphic artist originally from Greenburg/Labtrobe area of Pennsylvania. He was a 1967 graduate of Hempfield Senior High School in western Pennsylvania. He then attended the Art Institute of Pittsburg earning an Advertising-Illustration degree in September 1969. He then finished his education at Indiana Northern University in Indiana earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1971.
Terry was enlisted in to the Air Force Reserves from 1972 until 1977. During his service he was assigned to Andrews Air force base as a medic. His family moved to Baltimore where he lived until his death.
He was the love of my life my soul mate. We fit together like two puzzle pieces. We both had our unique personality but somehow they blended together. If Terry had been rich he would have been called eccentric but since he was not just strange. Terry loved his things. Always something new to collect. I am surrounded by them and in turn by him. I just need to look at something to remember the look on his face when he got it. I sometimes said no but he knew in the end I would give in. I couldn't deny him his fun. I will miss him but know that we will be together again. He is waiting for me just as I am waiting for him. I will love him forever
He also loved looking into his family's past which brought him to this site. He loved finding new family members and helping others to find theirs.
He is survived by his wife Heidi and many friends and family. He was larger than life and will be forever missed.
His wife continues to maintain all of his memorials. Please use the edit button for any request.
