Timothy Wyatt Whitley, age 43 of Douglasville, passed away, January 16, 2012. He was born June 6, 1968 in Fulton County to Mary GreshamWhitley Holland and the late Robert Eli Whitley. He was a licensed Minister of the Gospel, Chaplin of F.A.I.T.H. Riders Motorcycle Ministry at the Chapel Hill Road Baptist Church and an employee of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department. For those who knew Tim, there are not enough words to describe his kindness and generosity. For those who didn’t know him, Tim lived what he believed: Put God first and everything else would fall into place. He always gave God the credit for making him a loving husband and father. Tim loved to hunt, ride his motorcycle and to preach. Tim could rebuild your house or your motor or he could show you in God’s Word how to rebuild your heart and life. If Tim were here now, he would tell us all “Don’t weep for me, I am home, meet me.”
In addition to his father, Robert Eli Whitley, he was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Artis and Raymoth Lott and paternal grandparents, Bill and Ava Lee Whitley.
