Mr. James Akins Suddeth
Mr. James Akins Suddeth, age 56, passed away unexpectedly on April 7, 2021, at his home in Register, Georgia.
    James was born in Hawaii on August 6, 1964, to Donald and Eva Linda Akins Suddeth while Donald was serving in the United States Air Force, stationed at Hickam Air Force Base.
    Upon graduation from Statesboro High School, James, following in his father’s footsteps, also proudly joined and served in the United States Air Force. Later, he began his career as an electrician with his cousin, Tracy Akins, at Akins Plumbing & Electric.
    When he was not working, James enjoyed the great outdoors. His children called him the “Doomsday Prepper” as at heart, he was a survivalist and wanted to make sure all his loved ones would be taken care of if anything happened.
    James loved his wife, cherished his kids dearly, adored his grandchildren and treasured his cousins as if they were his siblings.
    James is survived by his wife, Stacy Suddeth; his children, Orrey Kennon (Natasha), Katie Kennon and Eva Grace Suddeth, all of Missouri; his granddaughters, Liliana Marie Kennon, Willow Krée Kennon, Aurelia Rose Kennon and Nova Camille Kennon; and his cousins, Tracy Akins (Kathy), Chris Akins (Andy), Tommy Akins (Mirta), Tal Akins (Melissa) and Lea Akins.
    James will be greatly missed, but his memory will carry on with those who love him.
    A celebration of life is planned for Thursday, April 15, 2021, from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the family residence at 1204 Akins Anderson Road, Register, Georgia.
