Timothy graduated from Fayetteville Technical Community College with an Architectural degree. He began his career working at Interior Wood Specialties (IWS). He later became self-employed and continued his career working with his family doing what he loved farming and building cabinets.

Timothy was always a fan and loved being involved in racing throughout his life. It began with him racing go-carts and continued as he supported and watched his son race later. Farming was also a passion and a pastime for him. From his youth, working in the garden and riding tractors was what he loved. He believed in working with and providing for his family. He also supported his community through Ammon Volunteer Fire Department for over 30 years.

The family thanks everyone in advance for the love and support received. Any donations in memory of Timothy can be made to Lower Cape Fear Life Care or Ammon Volunteer Fire Department.
