He was preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Gail Moland Amos; two sons, David Amos and Donny Amos; and his parents.

Pallbearers will be Scotty Amos, Rory Amos, Josh Amos, Ryan Bain, Brandon Warhurst and his long-time friend, Mike Logan.

The family extends special thanks to his longtime physician and friend, Dr. Mann of Florence, as well as Encompass Home Health, especially OC Drew, PT Kayla and nurse Jasmine, Southern Care New Beacon Hospice and nurses Megan and Bridget.
