Obituary of Robert Lee Tanksley

Robert Lee “Rob” Tanksley, a licensed, skilled tree man and life-long resident of Clayton County GA, passed away unexpectedly June 6, 2021. Robert was born on April 2, 1964 and is survived by his parents Robert William Tanksley and Mary Frances Tanksley, his brothers Chris Tanksley (Angie Tanksley) and Tim Tanksley (Killer Tanksley), his children Jessica Tanksley (Chaina Strength), Robert Tanksley (Kensley Tanksley), and Little Christian, Uncle Bobby Nash (Sheree Nash), Uncle Don Nash, many cousins, extended family, and friends. Rob was a hard-working, good hearted man who would give the shirt off of his back to help a friend in need. He is a graduate of Forest Park High class of 82. He was a great father to his children and instilled in them the morals and values that only a daddy could. Rob loved working out, playing video games, grilling, and cutting trees. Everyone who knew Rob knows how much of a joy he was to have in their life. Whether it be a good laugh or a good time, Rob was the life of the party. He was strong willed and a problem solver. His work ethic was unlike any other and his repeat customers showed his skill for his craft. Rob was a great man, a legend, and he will be surely missed. A funeral service for Mr. Rob Tanksley will be held on Thursday, June 10, 2021, at Zion Hill Baptist Church at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor Martin Jones officiating.
