It is with deep sadness that I report the passing of Capt. Bob Akin on Wednesday evening, October 12th.
Bob started his career with Piedmont Airlines in 1967 as a F/E on the B-727. During his career he flew the M-404, F-227, YS-ll, B-737 and the B-767. He instructed on the YS-ll and the B-767.
After retirement from US Airways Bob worked with Delta as a contract instructor on the B-767. He retired from Delta in July of this year.
Surviving Bob is his wife, Babs, one brother and neice's and nephews.
Bob will be remembered as a dedicated and professional airman but most of all, a good friend.
