George Earl Timmons, Jr. was born on September 3, 1940 in Kings Ferry, Florida to Mrs. Cora Lee Timmons and the late George Timmons, Sr. He attended school in Nassau County. He started in the pulpwood business at age seventeen and worked in the industry for over forty years. He was married to Mercedes C. Timmons for sixty-two years. George was a trustee at Mt. Olive Baptist Church. He was a member of the St. Mark Lodge for twenty years.

In his spare time, George tended to his garden and plants. He loved working with his hands and sharing what he produced with his family and friends. If he wasn’t outside, he was inside watching his Westerns. He loved his family and enjoyed family dinners.

On the evening of April 29, 2022, our Heavenly Father saw it time to call George Jr. home. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Sandra Timmons; son, George Timmons, III; his sister, Ester Lee Tyler; his brother, John Lewis Timmons; his uncles, Adolphus Timmons and Elijah Timmons; his aunt, Nadine Timmons; and grandson, Marquis Martin.

His memory lives on through his loving family and his legacy lives on through his wife, Mercedes Timmons; daughters, Tara Timmons and Robin Timmons; his mother, Cora Lee Timmons; granddaughters, Shaina Timmons and Jordan Martin; his grandsons, Jaheim Bryant and Jade Bryant; brother, Jerry O.
