Preston Timmons, 92, of Jasper, passed away on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. He was born on Nov. 18, 1920. To the public, he was known as the voice of WARF's gospel hour for many years. To Eastside Baptist Church, he was known as the faithful member and to his family, he was simply, Paw-paw, a man with a great sense of humor and a love for his family. His grandchildren will always remember his love for them, his love of music, and his joking spirit. He made a living by being a carpenter, brick mason, and manufactured homes dealer, but he made a life by being a joy to be around. Special thanks to Lakewood Senior Living for their care for "Pops" and to the many people that have ministered to our family during his journey through the various stages of dementia.
