His childhood was spent on local military bases. He graduated from Jacksonville High School in 1970. He married his high school sweetheart, Sally Conner in 1971. Tim’s passion was playing music as a bass musician and singer in local bands, such as Systematic Sounds, Nantucket, Armageddon, Ernie Fields show band, Castle, and Reign. He co-owned a local contractor business for several years. Tim married his soulmate Deanie in 1988. Together they raised a daughter Angie. Tim enjoyed playing volleyball and golf. His other interests were camping, kayaking, snow and water skiing, sailing and gardening. He also enjoyed cooking and barbecuing for family and friends. Tim is survived by Deanie, Angie, grandson Jared, (Candace), and great-grandson Greyson. Jared was very much loved and the apple of his Papa’s eyes! He is also survived by his siblings, Laurie (Dave), Paul, Sue (Allen), Matt (Susan), Beth (Eddie), Mary (Joe), and Pat. He was like a second father to his younger siblings and was deeply loved and respected. Tim’s many nieces and nephews have happy memories of their fun-loving “Uncle Tim”.

A Celebration of Life Service will be announced at a later date for family and friends.
