Mr. James Wendell Tumlin, age 80, of Acworth, GA., passed away, Tuesday, February 7, 2017 surrounded by his family. Mr. Tumlin was born on July 24, 1936 in Acworth, a son of the late James Herman Thomas Tumlin and Maggie Orr Tumlin.
Mr. Tumlin was a life-long resident of Acworth, GA. He was a devoted member of Crossroads Baptist Church for many years. His career was spent purchasing and selling antiques for his antique shop. In his spare time, he found great joy being outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. Though his work and hobbies brought him great satisfaction, it never compared to the joy he found being a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Wendell will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Along with his parents, Mr. Tumlin is preceded in death by his former spouse, Mrs. Sibyl Tumlin.
Mr. Tumlin is survived by his loving wife, Patricia Casey Tumlin; two children, Mike Tumlin, wife Denise and Diana Gobbi, husband Mike, both of Acworth; one sister, Jewel McMichen, husband, Lealon of Dallas, GA; four grandchildren, Seth (Katie) Gobbi, Scott Gobbi, Josh (Erin) Tumlin, and Ashley Tumlin; two great-grandchildren, Aiden Tumlin and William Gobbi; and several extended family members and friends.
