The community came to say goodbye to a beloved leader in Roanoke this early afternoon.
Reverend Carl Tinsley died this past Saturday after fighting his battle against cancer. The homegoing service was held at the Pilgrim Baptist Church. The church was filled with dozens of people who said goodbye to the man who received many honors in the community including Roanoke Citizen of the Year.
"He was a very loving man," says Peggy Moyer, Rev. Tinsley's niece. "He gave everybody the best he could he was a person that not only did the people respect him he was well known and respected others."
