Timmy was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend; he was an extraordinary man whose life was filled with passion, dedication, and a deep love for others.
For the past four years, he worked as a Facility Manager at Cylinder Sales & Testing, prior to this, Timmy spent ten years as a tugboat captain. However, one of Timmy's favorite jobs was during his high school years when he worked at Kyle's Cajun Kitchen.
He also proudly served as a volunteer fireman in Henderson. Additionally, he found great fulfillment in coaching football for the CYFL Gators. Timmy was an integral part of the AA community. He touched countless lives through his generosity, compassion, and unwavering support for others. Whether it was lending a listening ear or offering a helping hand, Timmy was always there for those who needed him most.
Timmy married the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Amber; they spent 20 years together and were married for 15 of those; together they created a beautiful life. His devotion extended to his children and supporting them in whatever they did. He always made sure to attend every game and performance they participated in. From Paxton's sports to being a cheer and dance dad for Averi, Timmy was their number one fan cheering them on with unwavering enthusiasm. His love knew no bounds when it came to his children.
But amidst all of this love for his family, Timmy remained a true momma's boy. He shared a special bond with his mother, and her homemade fried chicken held a particularly cherished place in his heart. We take comfort in knowing they are together again.
