Posted By Hall-Wynne On September 19, 2010 @ 12:00 am In Obituaries | No Comments

Timothy Joe Leonard, age 58 and a resident of Franklinton, died September 19, 2010. He was born in Wake County to the late Douglas Nelson and Lena Mae Dickerson Leonard on February 11, 1952. He ran Leonard’s Men Shop with his father and brother for 11years and worked for Farm Bureau Insurance for 23 years.

He was a loving father, grandfather, brother and friend. He was an honorable and great man who loved his family. He was a hard worker, a diligent provider, and had a funny sense of humor. He knew no stranger and would help anyone in need.

We will miss our father dearly and are comforted by memories of his passion for fishing, Red Bud cabin trips, family stories, and always wanting to spend time with his children and grandchildren. He loved his weekly date night with his daughters and watching them play ball.

You will always stay in our memories and our hearts Dad. We love you!!

Tim is survived by his five loving children: Gail Lindsey, Kevin Lindsey and wife, Amy; Laurie Lindsey, Casey Butner and husband, Dexter; and Elizabeth Leonard, all of Winston-Salem, NC; his brother, Steve Leonard and wife, Mary, of Raleigh, NC; three grandchildren: Ashley, Austin and Silas; three great-grandchildren; his former wife, Vicki Leonard of Winston-Salem; and a very special and devoted life-long friend, Anethia Collins of Franklinton, NC.

Tim was a fine man, I count it a pleasure knowing him!

Condolence from Michael Ziglar on September 23rd, 2010 12:00 am

It is so hard to say goodbye to Tim. I hired him in the late 80’s and worked with him over 7 years before he transferred to another office. Tim was a very funny guy who cared about people. He was always upbeat and fun to be around.
My heart goes out to his family and especially his children and grandchildren. You guys need to know how proud Tim was of you and how much he cared abou you. Tim Leonard will be sorely missed.

AS WE THINK BACK TO THE MANY FUNNY AND WONDERFUL MEMORIES WITH TIM IT TOUCHES OUR HEART TO HEAR OF HIS PASSING!!! TIM WAS A “STANDUP” GUY, THAT ALWAYS TRIED TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR PEOPLE. HE LOVED HIS FAMILY AND CARED DEEPLY FOR THEM!
I’M SURE TIM IS UP IN THAT FISHING POND IN THE SKY TRYING TO DECIDE WHETHER TO USE 12LB. TEST LINE OR 10 LB. TEST.
HE WAS A GREAT GUY AND WE ALL WILL MISS HIM
