Timothy graduated from Magnolia High School in 1988. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Timothy enrolled and graduated from UNC-Pembroke with a degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology while working full-time. His varied work history included the NC Department of Corrections as a Correctional Officer, an Officer with the Fairmont Police Department, a Claims Representative with Progressive Insurance, a Security Officer with Stein Mart, and various positions in the service industry. Timothy considered the “proudest” and most important event in his life was the birth of his son in 1995. This event reinforced the value of family, was pivotal in his cherished role as a single father, and solidified the support and connection he provided to family. Timothy lived his life to reflect Matthew 7:12 “In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.” Through this verse, his favorite quote was, “Treat others as you would want to be treated. You will notice when you do that with anyone, they will give you their total respect.”
The family will receive friends from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, March 28, 2015 at Locklear & Son Funeral Home.
