A St. George Island man received a regional award Friday for his work delivering Meals on Wheels over the past 15 years.

On Friday, Tim Brown, 45, received a plaque from the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida , naming him the district-wide Volunteer of the Year for 2013.

Davis, who was earlier named the county’s Volunteer of the Year, was chosen as regional volunteer from 10 county representatives. Franklin County Meals on Wheels Coordinator Donna Thompson nominated Davis for the honor.

In a letter to the awards committee, she wrote, “I have chosen Tim Davis for the Volunteer of the Year because he is an outstanding young man. Even though Tim has a disability, he never complains. Tim always has a smile on his face. He is very friendly, helpful and loveable.

“Tim and his parents deliver Meals on Wheels once a week. They work as a team. Dad drives, mom does the paperwork and Tim does the footwork. The clients on the meal route always look forward to seeing Tim because he lights up their day with his friendly personality.

“Tim’s mom and dad are retired. Tim has a disability and does not work. This gives him a chance to get out and help others. I would like Tim to be chosen for this award because I think he deserves to be recognized for his volunteer services,” Thompson wrote.

On Friday, she read the letter to a group of guests and presented Davis with a glass trophy commemorating the award. Tim’s father, Bob Davis, said the family has volunteered for Meals on Wheels for 15 years.
