Deacon Allen Thinn, Jr. was born July 25, 1933, to the late Allen and Manatee Thinn in Marianna, FL. He attended Holy Neck Baptist Church where he gave his life to Christ at an early age. Deacon Thinn received his education from the Jackson County School System. He loved and lived his life with the late Sister Leola Thinn and only one child was blessed to this union. He was the father, grandfather and god father of many. Sister Leola Thinn and his six sisters have all preceded him in death. Deacon Thinn enjoyed working and taking care of his family. He was employed by Lykes Pasco Packing, the Pasco County School Board and had a lawn care service. Deacon Thinn was someone who always had two jobs. As an employee of Lykes Pasco, he occasionally had the opportunity to do big parties for the politician campaign benefits. He was well known for his barbecue dinners and was the best at it. Deacon Thinn was a member of St. John Missionary Baptist Church, where he was very active with the Male Chorus. He supported their engagements until his health began to decline. He loved his church family and did all he could as long as he was able. On August 23, 2023, Deacon Thinn heard the call and he answered. He leaves precious memories with his family: children, Gwendolyn, Valerie, and Daniel; grandchildren, Lady Stephanie Williams (Pastor Williams), and Meshalle; brothers, Deacon Willie Thinn (Idwella) and Elder Tommie Thinn (Cherrie); brother-in-law, Deacon Robert Baker; god daughters, Keira, Lady Stephanie Reaves (Pastor Reaves); sisters-in-law, Lola, Vera, and Alice; and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and sorrowing friends.
