ATKIN, Jonathon Zane (1985 – 2017)
Jonathon Zane Atkin died peacefully at home Sunday morning. He is survived by his loving mother Shelley Smith, brother Jack Harris, father Mickey Atkin, stepfather Brad Harris, grandparents Elizabeth Labonte, Edward Labonte and Tina Atkin, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Predeceased by grandfathers John Smith and Chuck Atkin, beloved dog Otis, and singer Marvin Gaye.

Zane was inspired by photography, music, and the people in his community, ready to connect with anyone and everything he could. Above all else, he was a generous good soul who could listen, be loving and positive, and always offered up sound, thoughtful advice.

He struggled to turn the positivity inward, to love and respect himself the way he reminded us we all should. His life is a good reminder to recognize the powers we have inside to affect the people we care most about. You don’t have to have letters behind your name to be the right person to give advice and support. You just need to listen.
