A Memorial Service celebrating his life will be held on Saturday, March 4th at 11:00 at Goshen Baptist Church in Lincoln County with Rev. Robert Adams officiating.

Lynn and Keats lived in Virginia for most of their lives before retiring in Lincoln County, GA in 1996 because they loved the area.

He is survived by his wife Keats V. Thackston of Evans, GA; his son David W. Dettor and his wife Jennifer of Mount Airy, MD; his daughter Jennifer L. Wilson of Evans, GA; 4 grandchildren, 3 step-grandchildren, and 1 great grandson.
