Retired Sheriff's Deputy, Tim Chapman, passed away on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, after a brief battle with cancer. He was 56 years old.

Tim was a native of Goldsboro, North Carolina, where he graduated from Southern Wayne Senior High School. From 1982 until 1992, he proudly served his country in the United States Air Force as a Security Police Law Enforcement Specialist. Tim aided the military during the Gulf War and in 1986 he was stationed at Robins Air Force Base. Subsequent to his military career, he began working as a Sheriff’s Deputy with the Houston County Sheriff’s Office. Tim attained the rank of Sergeant and worked in many capacities with the HCSO including as a Detention Officer, Patrol Division Officer, and finishing as a School Resource Officer before his recent retirement. In his leisure time, Tim was an avid bowler at Gold Cup Bowling Center and absolutely loved spending time with all of his friends there. He also enjoyed playing the guitar at local venues and fellowshipping with friends at the International City Optimist Club. Tim was a wonderful, caring man who had a terrific personality. He was loved and respected by many and will be deeply missed by his family as well as all those who were fortunate to have called him a friend.
