According to EEW Magazine News, the father of Mary Mary’s Erica and Tina Campbell, Elder Eddie A. Atkins Jr., has passed away, after battling cancer.

“Our hearts are heavy but we can rejoice knowing our father knew we Loved him,” reads a June 26 message posted on Mary Mary’s official Twitter page. “RIP Elder Eddie A Atkins Jr. Rest in the arms of Jesus Daddy.”

The complicated relationship the family patriarch had with his family

played out publicly on WE tv’s hit reality show, Mary Mary. He was

married and divorced three times to Thomasina “Honey” Atkins, the

matriarch of the family and mother of nine.

Though not always present in his family’s life, both Mr. and Ms. Atkins remained friendly, while maintaining a co-

parenting relationship.

“Thanks 4 all the kind words & prayers sent today,” said another early morning tweet. “Our Dad was a great man, but he’s with Jesus now he taught us how to pray & trust God.
