Arnold Murray Timmons

December 3, 1948August 2, 2020

TIMMONS, Arnold Murray, age 71, Arnold joined his family and friends in Heaven on August 2, 2020. He will be sadly missed by his best friends, and partners, Linda Gallant and Oreo; as well as his daughters, Elizabeth Ann, Dianna Lynn, Nellina; chosen daughter, Tanya; and stepson, Daniel; also by his 16 grandchildren; his great-grandchildren; and previous wife and friend, Nellie. Arnold is survived by brothers, Stewart and Wayne; and special sisters, Jean and Loretta. He was predeceased by his parents, Ernest and Elizabeth; brothers, Elmer, Russell, Wendall and Francis; and sister, Georgina. Arnold was a hard working, never give up kind of man, with many years of loyalty to his employer Wayne Gillis. He was very well-known for his love of a good game of cribbage but more so for his love of winning the game as more than a few can attest to his enthusiasm of being the best, and he was that in many ways. There will be no visitation. Funeral Service will be held on August 21st at 2 p.m. in St. Matthews United Church, Inverness, with Pastor Maggie Plant celebrating. Burial will take place at a later date in Pleasant Bay. Memorial donations in Arnolds name may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or to Central Inverness Palliative Care Society. Online condolences may be made to: www.invernessfuneralhome.com

So sorry to hear of Arnolds Passing, my deepest sympathy to all his family. Arnold was one of a kind who was always ready to help whenever help was needed. Played many games of crib with him back home in Pleasant Bay and even beat him once in a while. Fly high my friend and rest in peace.
