December 2, 1950 - September 17, 2020
Mr. Larry Denton Timms, 69, passed away at his resident, Pine Acres, surrounded by family and under care of Kindred Hospice, but he is now with his beloved Bat. He was born in Millen, GA to the late Jack Timms and Martha Mooney Timms in 1950. He was a graduate of Screven County High School. In 1969 he received a life saving kidney transplant from his sister, Sherry. Larry faced many fights throughout his life but his toughness and grit allowed him never to complain. He was an avid outdoorsman that hunted and fished and was at home on the Savannah River or at Tybee Island. He ingrained that love for the outdoors in his children and in their children, so that they may be good stewards of the land. Lastly, Larry will be remembered as a gracious host, that made everyone feel welcomed and for his devoted friendships that resulted in many becoming “extended” family. As his family said it best; “we could write a book about him but it would be too long to print.” He is preceded in death by his wife, Betty Ann Timms (Bat), his parents and a brother, Arthur “Bubba” Timms. He is survived by his two sons and daughters-in-law, Josh and Greta D. Timms, of Sardis, and Travis and Ashley L. Timms, of Savannah; grandchildren, Luke, Ava, Jackson, and Dylan Timms, siblings; Vivian and Jimmy Wiggins, and Sherry and John Grooms, both of Sylvania, sisters-in-law, Brenda Timms of Macon, Brenda Walter Day of Savannah, and Mary Lee Ambrose of Rincon, a special angel, Diane Wise of Tifton, and a host of other family and friends. Memorial services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the KT Team, P.O. Box 3014, Statesboro, GA, 30459 or www.thektteam.org. Friends may sign the online register book at www.joineranderson.com Joiner Anderson Funeral Home Screven Chapel is in charge of all arrangements.
