A dearly beloved and decorated Vietnam War veteran with two Purple Hearts, Harvey Timothy Amos passed away on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, at the Houston Medical Center. He was 74 years old.

Born on September 8, 1949, in Cartersville, Georgia, Tim was the son of the late William Harvey Amos and Lydia Jo Paris Amos. A proud patriot, Tim grew up in a military family who lived stateside as well as abroad in Japan. While in Japan, during his formative years, Tim played baseball and was the catcher for his team during the Little League World Series. As a young man, Tim moved with his family to Warner Robins where he attended Northside High School. At the spry age of 17, Tim enlisted in the United States Marines and bravely volunteered to serve in the Vietnam War. For 14 months, Tim fought in combat and was injured three times. He served a total of four honorable years sacrificing for his country and held the rank of Sergeant.

Upon returning from the war in 1969, Tim married his wife, Joanne. Together they lived in Parris Island, South Carolina, then moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia, before relocating to Marietta, Georgia, where they started their family. Later, Tim and his family settled in Warner Robins. He began a career at Robins Air Force Base, first as a parts manager, and later as a sheet metal mechanic. As an entrepreneur, Tim exited the government to start his own contracting business, Pentagon Supply Company, where he supplied vital materials to military bases around the country. He later returned to Robins AFB as a civilian for several years until his retirement.

Tim was also involved in his community. Lovingly referred to as “Coach Amos,” Tim taught many softball and volleyball teams. He also played an intricate role in advocating and securing sports scholarships for his players. A man of many interests, Tim enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping. He was an avid outdoorsman and taught his entire family how to deer hunt.

Tim never met a stranger, loved joking and laughing, and most of all, took delight in helping others. He was generous to a fault.

Tim will be remembered for his honorable service to his country, love for his community, and generosity to all.

In addition to his parents, Tim was preceded in death by his great nephew, Joseph Reid; and sister-in-law, Diana Reynolds.

His memory will forever be treasured by his beloved wife of 55 years, Joanne Amos of Centerville; children, Tara Amos Roberts (Danny) of Shreveport, LA, and Laura Amos (Brian Graham) of Warner Robins; grandchildren, Abigail Roberts Pons (Nate) of Memphis, Tennessee, Devant Roberts of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Bryce Timothy Bennet (Angel) of Centerville, Braden Bennet of  Warner Robins; great-grandson, Elijah Caven Bennet; sister, Vickie Lindsey (Danny) of Canton; nephews, Mitch Reid (Nikki) and their children, Daniel Reid and Kinleigh Reid; brother-in-law, Ray Caven; sisters-in-law, Donna Ellis, Vicki Adams; as well as a host of nieces and nephews, beloved extended family members, and friends; and loving pets “Bandit” and “Lily.”

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Houston Medical Center, both past and present healthcare professionals, and to Dr. Thomas H. Williamson and wife, Julie, as well as their amazing office staff for the care they have provided to Tim throughout his lifetime.
