Our condolences to the Tinker family

We've gotten some bad news for our TF community; Trent Tinker’s dad, Tim passed away on Friday afternoon. With his mom passing away last June, this has been a tough 6 months for the Tinker family. Tim was my pastor when I was in second grade through sixth grade. Tim also had a strong impact on my life in my teen years through denominational activities. Please pray for the Tinker family.
The funeral will be held Tuesday the 11th at 2:00 at the Park Lawn Funeral Home in Liberty. Map

Here is the published memorial for Tim:

Trent asked me to share at Tim's funeral tomorrow. What a privilege to celebrate the life of someone who invested in me.

May God’s peace be on the Tinker family!
