John is survived by, his children, Johnny (Brea) Akim III and Jade (Tyler) Akim, grandchildren, Rasheed, Evelyn, Isabelle, and Addison, siblings, Bennet (Bonnie) Akim, Bob Akim, Michelle (Jason) Baskerville, and Melanie Akim, and former wife, Angela Akim, as well as many nieces, nephews, and other loving family and friends.
