To the Family
c/o Scott State Bank, Niantic, Illinois

On Thursday evening 11/2 Jon (Doug) Timmons received a call, an offer of sorts that
you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which he will not be returning. We were
blessed to have spent 60 years enjoying his company. In that time, we have all learned
many valuable lessons from Doug, among them:

1. Show up - Your presence is more important than anything that you say or do. Doug
showed up for his family and friends. There was not a thing that we asked of him that
he would not do. He was selfless, even to his own detriment at times. 2. Laugh - Doug
laughed at a lot of awful jokes. Seriously, it took very little to get a wheezing, belly
laugh out of him.  He simply enjoyed the presence of those that he loved, and that joy
overflowed into laughter, even when he was the only one laughing. 3. Your story is not
over - Doug’s life was one of several unique chapters, with peaks and valleys. Your
past does not define you nor does it prevent you from being the man or woman that
God has called you to be. His legacy is one of selflessness and generosity. Life goes on
and our routine will settle back in without him…It would just be a lot more fun if he
were still around.

Surviving is his wife Julie Timmons, son James Timmons, grandson Kalob Timmons,
granddaughter Brooklyn Calvert, siblings Joe Timmons, Nancy Timmons, Sandy
(Tyler) Lyon, Linda Timmons, Mike (Wanda) Timmons, and eleven nieces and

He was preceded in death by his parents Lovena and Wayne Timmons, brothers
Tommy and Tony and sister Terry.

Graveside services for will be at Long Point Cemetery in Niantic, Illinois on Tuesday,
11/7 at 2 PM followed by a celebration of life at Timmons Trucking, Warrensburg.  All
are welcome to both.  Memorials can be made to the family at Scott State Bank,
Niantic, Illinois.
