Tim MageeBy STAFF,
Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16, 2019, at Carson Springs Baptist Church in Sandy Hook for Tim Magee, 55, of Foxworth, who died on Saturday, Aug. 10 in Angie, La. Burial will follow in Carson Springs Baptist Church Cemetery. Rev. Carl Dickens, Rev. Nate McKenzie and Rev. Jerry Terrell will officiate at the services. Visitation was held from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15 at Carson Springs Baptist Church.
He was born in Tylertown and had been a longtime resident of Marion County. He was employed 35 years with Hood Industries and was a highly valued employee because of his work ethic and ability to operate all machinery. He was a member of Carson Springs Baptist Church and loved helping people, especially the elderly. He was also dedicated to his family. Over the years, he looked out for his baby sister and in recent years, his children and granddaughter. There are so many stories that could be told as he loved motorcycles, ice cream, Mountain Dew and “leftovers” – we affectionately called him “Hoover”. He will be sorely missed. Whenever Tim would greet someone, it was with salutations like “My Lady” and “What’s a happening?” so it’s only fitting we say the same as he has many times before leaving, “Stay Sweet” Tim, “Stay Sweet.”
He was preceded in death by his parents, Wilbur and Bessie Rea Magee, and brother, Ricky Magee.
Survivors include his daughter, Tiara Culpepper (Travis) of Columbia; son, Mikey Magee of Columbia; sister, Karesa Pittman (Kendall) of Foxworth, and granddaughter, Tahlia Culpepper.
Pallbearers will be Ricky Lowery, Raymond Lee, Marty Breland, Daniel Ford Turnage,Lavelle Stringer, Bob Stogner, Jamie Magee and Greg King.
