Lulli Boe & Todd Akin
Lulli Boe who is a graduate of Hollins University was married to Todd Akin in June 1975. The couple had six children. Lulli became a homeschooling activist, and all of the children were home-schooled. Three sons attended the Naval Academy and became officers in the Marines. One of his sons served in the assault on Fallujah, Iraq.
Akin enjoyed playing guitar and singing gospel songs, and over the years, dressed in Revolutionary War attire for Fourth of July celebrations.
Akin and his wife lived for many years in his childhood home, a house owned by his father in affluent Town and Country, Missouri. When his father sought to subdivide the 8.5-acre property in the late 2000s, Akin moved to a house in Wildwood.
Todd Akin Death & Cause
Todd Akin is being reported to have died on October 3, 2021, in Wildwood, Missouri. He was 74. Akin had cancer for several years, his son Perry said in a statement. He died late Sunday at his home in Wildwood, a St. Louis suburb.
“As my father’s death approached, we had people from all different walks of life share story after story of the personal impact he had on them,” Perry Akin said in a statement to The Associated Press.
“He was a devout Christian, a great father, and a friend to many. We cherish many fond memories from him driving the tractor at our annual hayride, to his riveting delivery of the freedom story at 4th of July parties dressed in the full uniform of a colonial minuteman. The family is thankful for his legacy: a man with a servant’s heart who stood for truth.”
I just learned that Todd Akin has died. He was a nice man,and although we had major disagreements about just about everything, he was authentic to his beliefs. He actually believed in everything he said, which is a tribute to his character. My thoughts are with his lovely family.
