I am sad to learn of the passing of a Brother and Hero in Corporal Timothy Michael Tanksley. I believe our Heavenly Father has welcomed him home into his loving arms where he will now patrol the Golden Streets of Heaven. May the Lord deliver Blessings, Comfort and Peace to his Family, Friends and all Members of the Alto Police Department, Georgia

This man would give you the shirt off his back with no clue where he was going to give you a new one. This man would never leave you hanging no matter what the circumstances. I can't count the times he would have just gotten home when he herd me getting into something and he would just gear up and come back no questions asked and always happy to do so. You will be missed brother!

Rest well friend, from the Kindergarten days through high school and when we reconnected when I started in Baldwin, I knew I could depend on you night or day. It tears me up knowing you’re gone. Until we meet again, rest easy Brother.
