Timothy Steelman Obituary


Timothy Eugene Steelman, 67, of Chatsworth, GA went to be with his Lord on February 18, 2024, surrounded by family and friends.

Timmy was born to Jr. and Alice Steelman on August 15, 1956, in Northville, MI.  He joined the Army in 1974, serving through 1979.  While in service he trained in Fort Jackson, SC, Fort Polk, LA, and was stationed in Panama Canal.  While in Panama Canal he became a 101st Airborne Ranger.  Timmy completed his service while stationed in Fort Campbell, KY.  He then started a family and joined the workforce in Chatsworth, GA holding jobs at Diamond, Browning, T & L Tire, vinyl siding, and owning multiple poultry farms.  Timmy preached from 1997 through 2012 sharing the love of Jesus and leading many souls to the Lord throughout this time.  He retired in 2011 and spent the next years enjoying his grandchildren and his family.  His most recent job was working in Indian Trace “for fun”.

Timmy is survived by his wife, Darcell, of 49 years; two daughters April Young (Bill Hannigan) and Alison Jones (Stanton Jones).  He is also survived by four grandchildren; Logan Young, Avery Jones, Lawson Young, and Allie Jones.  In addition, two brothers; Lynn Steelman (Janice Steelman) and Randy Steelman (Leona Steelman). Survivors also include many nieces and nephews.

Timmy is preceded in death by his mother Alice Earlene Donahue Steelman and his father Robert Steelman, JR. of Chatsworth, GA.  In addition, his sister Cheryl Bice and Renee Loftis of Cleveland, TN.

Aside from his love for golf and Rook, Timmy was passionate and very protective about his grandchildren.  He was always doing anything he could to make people laugh and feel loved.  His most recent pride and joy was his dog, Toby, who would go “everywhere” with him.
