In Memory of
    John F. Atkinson
    1932 - 2018

     It is with a heavy heart that the law firm of Atkinson & Atkinson and the Federation of Associations of Regulatory Boards (FARB) announce the passing of John F. “Jack” Atkinson.  Jack passed away on May 26, 2018, at his home in Hertford, North Carolina surrounded by Mary, his wife of 64 years, and his three sons, John, Mark, and Dale.  Jack was a dedicated husband, father, friend and colleague and his life was exemplified by integrity and passion.  Jack originally incorporated FARB in 1974 and was integrally involved in its evolution.  He is also a past recipient of the FARB Lifetime Achievement Award for distinguished service to the regulatory community.  Jack was a founding partner in the law firm of Atkinson and Atkinson (A&A), a boutique firm representing associations of regulatory boards.  He was a champion for the regulatory community spending nearly 60 years advising such associations.  His contributions to the A&A clients were guided by his intellectual ability, capacity for leadership, and sense of responsibility and dedication.  Jack was one of a kind.  He will be missed.
