Tim started work for Weyerhaeuser in 1974. His last job at Weyerhaeuser was a log stacker in Bay City ASY, where he suffered an injury at work and was disabled in 1999. Tim enjoyed working on cars especially his ‘65 Nova.
Tim was known for helping others, dropping everything or getting up out of bed when he was ill from his cancer treatments, to go help a friend or family member. He even delivered Christmas trees to people he knew could not get their own or afford to buy one. He was a very caring and giving man, always putting others needs before his own.
Tim started his battle with cancer in 2011, when he was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer, which has been in remission. On Nov. 7, 2018, Tim was diagnosed with large cell lung cancer and has been battling it ever since, never giving up, fighting infection after infection and pneumonia, even up to the end of his life. On Jan. 2, 2020, Tim was taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital, where he was diagnosed with sepsis pneumonia. He continued to fight, believing he could beat this infection and come home to continue his cancer treatment. Tim was courageous and an inspiration to others.
A celebration of life will be held on May 16, 2020, at the 40 & 8 in Aberdeen, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., with a potluck.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like a donation made to PAWS or Cancer Society. Arrangements are entrusted to Harrison Family Mortuary of Aberdeen.
