Ricky Lee Atkinson

September 8, 1955 — July 8, 2022

Ricky Lee Atkinson,66, of Shawsville passed away July 8, 2022. He was born on September 8, 1955 to Priscilla Atkinson and the late, Billy Atkinson. Along with his mother, he is survived by brother & sister-in-law, Tony & Sharon Atkinson; sister, Regina Atkinson; nieces, Melanie (Tim) Wayne and Melissa (Toye) Oshoniyi; nephew, Matthew Durham; great nieces and nephews, Allie, Josiah, Cayden & Asher Wayne and Ryan Durham and Jaelyn, Kaiya & Chloe Oshoniyi.

Ricky was born in Roanoke, Va and raised in Shawsville. He loved it there. He attended church and played drums at Piedmont Pentecostal Holiness. He also loved Piedmont Camp Meeting. He was a devoted son, brother, and uncle. He loved his family and was friendly to all he met. He mowed many yards in the area. Ricky loved motorcycles and was an avid fisherman. He loved to fish when the rivers were stocked in Alleghany, Floyd and the New River.

We celebrate his life and rejoice that he accepted Jesus as his Savior so we know that he is in Heaven (probably fishing and catching golden trout) and that we will see him again.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, July 12 from 1 p.m. til 2 p.m. at Piedmont Pentecostal Holiness Church. The service will start at 2 p.m. with Rev. Leon Alley officiating. Interment will follow in Piedmont Cemetery.
