Timothy was born on April 1, 1967. He graduated from Blaine High School in 1985 and continued on to receive a Bachelor of Theology from Pensacola Bible Institute. His love for the spoken word and his undying love for God the Almighty knew no limits.

Timothy worked as a senior business/system analyst for BBB Industries for four years. He enjoyed canoeing, hiking, kayaking, sleeping, picking on family and laughing. He was also an active member of a local canoe club and enjoyed spending time with his extended family at Victory Baptist Church.

Tim is missed by his loving mother, Deanna; his siblings, Michael, Lena, Julie, Stephen, Thomas, John and Anne; he is also sorely missed by his son Ethan, nieces and nephews and his large list of family and friends. We are all truly saddened by the sudden loss of a wonderful, loving brother and father. Tim was preceded in death by his father, Eli.
