Jerry Roger Tinney

June 23, 1942 — June 17, 2019

Jerry Roger Tinney

Surrounded by his loving family, Jerry Roger Tinney went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 17, 2019. He was welcomed into his final home by his parents Linnie and Taft Tinney, and sister Nyla Avant. Roger was born June 23, 1942 at his boyhood home in the Tinney Chapel community.

As a young man, he worked with his father at Tinney Feed & Seed. His earliest passion was roping and riding. He passed that love on to his two boys, hauling them all over the state cheering them on. Now the granddaughters continue the rodeo tradition.

Later in life, Roger served several terms as Precinct 4 Wood County Commissioner, then started his own company, THT Boring, now run by his sons.

God blessed Roger with a wife “more precious than jewels” (Prov. 31:10), when He gave him Cindy Knight. The two married September 7, 1972 and spent 46 years loving each other and raising their family in Winnsboro.

Roger was a faithful member of First Baptist Church where he gave his heart to the Lord as a young boy. He chased after the Lord with determination and boldness, praying for his family and all those in need. He hungered to know God more deeply, reading God’s word, books by his favorite pastors and spending time in faithful prayer. Today he is at the feet of Jesus... all his questions answered.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife Cindy, his children Karen Tinney of Longview, Susan Shirley (Lance), Lance Tinney (Christy), Chance Tinney (Kory), Summer Blair (David); sisters Bette Chadick of Terrell and Lynda Hollingsworth; sisters-in-law, Leslie Caviness (Ralph) of Chandler, Mitzi Moss (Sammy); brothers-in-law Jerry Avant of Longview, Mark Knight (Betty), Bart Knight (Kelly); grandchildren Chris and Amanda Winkle, Denver and Dawson Tinney, Natalie and Presley Blair, Turner and Kesler Tinney.

“Uncle Roger” will be missed by many nieces and nephews that truly loved him.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held on Friday, June 21, 2019 at the “Homeplace” at 684 County Road 4620 Winnsboro, TX at 7:30 p.m., Bro. Earl Duggins conducting.

Roger was a very generous man, giving to several charities, including World Hunger, Annie Armstrong, and Lottie Moon.

In lieu of flowers, honor Roger’s memory by contributing to one of the above through First Baptist Church.
