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.
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
Always enjoyed talking Tim when he came into a restaurant I once owned. He was also a neighbor in my old neighborhood. Thinking and praying for the family and especially his grandson at this time.
