Wednesday 1st of September 1948 - Friday 24th of July 2020
On Friday, July 24th, 2020 Tim Williams, loving husband, father and grandfather passed away at the age of 71. Tim was born on September 1st, 1948 in Paintsville, KY to Charles and Colleen Williams.
Tim graduated from Paintsville High School in 1967. On September 27th 1974 Tim married Pat Workman and raised two sons Kip and T.C. Williams. In 1983 Tim began working for Vertner Smith Distributing and retired after 36 years in 2019. Tim loved his job and all of his accounts always spoke with high praise when talking about him. This was evident when at his retirement dinner some of his co-workers and accounts drove hours to join in the celebration. He stayed busy during retirement spending as much time as he could with his grandson, Mason. Together they made many memories, playing APBA baseball board game, watching ball games, and creating complete baseball card sets.
Tim had a passion for sports and coaching. He sat on the Little League board for over 15 years. Over the span of twenty years he coached hundreds of players in Little League, basketball, and football. He was able to take two teams to the state finals in Little League, just falling short of a championship. He made a lasting impact on all of those he coached and was always known as a tough but fair coach. Recently he began teaching his grandson, Mason, about sports and players of his day. He loved to watch ballgames with Mason and discuss the players.
Tim had a great sense of humor and was a joy to be around. He enjoyed life and always made those around him feel welcomed and loved. He was a great husband, father, and grandfather, and will be missed dearly. Tim is preceded in death by his parents Junior and Colleen Williams and one brother Charles (Chuke) Williams. Tim is survived by his wife of 45 years Pat (Workman), son Kip (Erica) Williams, son T. C. Williams, one grandson Mason Williams and one brother R.J. (Cheryl) Williams. Tim is also survived by several nieces and nephews. The family would also like to send a very special thank you to Pat's sister and brother in law, Johnny and Carolyn Estep for all their support over the years.
Arrangements will be made at a later date.
Hi Pat and Tim's Family, Michael and I are incredibly sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing Tim - what a gem! I started working with Tim in 2012 when I began working as a key account rep for Brown-Forman. Tim was instrumental in teaching me - a very green and eager new rep - the way of the world. He taught me about small businesses, how to properly call on accounts, and how to be a good sales person and supplier rep. I can't thank you enough for your hospitality each time I would travel to Paintsville to work the market. Pat, I remember you being so kind to be the designated driver when Tim and I would be in accounts promoting (and tasting) SoCo Lime and our delicious dinners at Pig in the Poke. I remember after one of those visits I sent so much merchandise for Tim's accounts that a semi truck showed up at your house - but you and Tim simply nonchalantly handled that. Kip, I'll never forget that Red Hot Chili Pepper concert and dinner at Eddie Merlot's. I still remember hearing Tim talk about Mason over dinner and hearing the love in his voice has always stuck with me. Tim also taught me about strength and determination - the dedication he had to his job was unmatched. I can't imagine what he went through running that route while taking chemo - and Pat, years later you driving him on his route so he could still call on his accounts! What a beautiful example of love in action. He absolutely cherished you all. Thank you guys for everything, and please take care. We send our deepest condolences.
Great guy that had kids involved in baseball and loved it. Will miss hm
I'm so very sorry. I had known Tim for many years from him coming to Rite Aid taking his orders.... He will definitely be missed.
I met Tim in the early 1980’s and he soon became one of my best friends. He definitely was one of a kind. He had so much love for his family and friends. You will be missed my best friend. Rest In Peace.
A big part of a lot of young men’s life. He loved coaching, but he loved kids even more! RIP Buddy
I am so sorry for your loss he was such a nice funny person that will be missed
