Timothy “Timmy” Scott Provo
Timothy “Timmy” Scott Provo departed this life on December 26, 2022. Timmy was born October 11, 1958 to Patricia and James Provo in Newport News, VA where he spent most of his life. As a teen, he was a daredevil who loved dirt bike racing. That love of speed progressed into a passion for NASCAR (slammin’ and bammin’). As Timmy got older, he was determined to make positive changes and turn his life around. He became active in AA and made numerous friends. These friends were one of the reasons Timmy was so successful in his quest to remain sober. Another major influence in his sobriety was the community at Menchville Baptist Church. They were instrumental in lifting him up through his lowest moments. Throughout all his highs and lows, the greatest source of pride and joy for Timmy was his son Christopher and grandson Noah. Noah and “Peepaw” spent many days at the dirt track in Saluda, watching deer in Yorktown, or going to Bristol for NASCAR. Timmy is preceded in death by his father James. He is survived by his mother Patricia, siblings Dawn, Stuart (Pat) & Leslie, son Christopher, daughter-in-law Megan, grandson Noah, nephew Daniel, niece Jennifer, great niece Willow, and numerous aunts and uncles.
The celebration of life will be held at Menchville Baptist Church on Monday, January 2, 2023 at 11:00 AM, 248 Menchville Rd, Newport News, VA 23602. Memorial contributions may be made to Menchville Baptist Church in Timmy’s honor in lieu of sending flowers.
