Timothy L. Timmons

November 3, 1961 ~ January 8, 2021 (age 59)


Timothy L. Timmons, 59, of Kirklin, passed away unexpectedly at his home, in the loving arms of his daughter, JC, on Friday, January 8, 2021. Tim came into this world on November 3, 1961 to Charles D. and Anna (Morgan) Timmons in Frankfort, IN. He married Cheri Renae Weaver on May 11, 1989. Though they may have gone in separate life directions, he and Cheri remained together through the mutual love of their children.

A graduate of Frankfort High School in 1981, Tim was a unique blend of the arts and science. Tim was a deep, introspective thinker who was shaped through his love of music. He was a self-taught drummer and space enthusiast. Electric was Tim and Tim was electric. He had numerous electrical certificates and spent the last 20 years of his career as a chief engineer at the PNC Tower in downtown Indianapolis. Tim loved cheering on the Chicago Bears and IU basketball. Tim became passionate about his health and fitness later in life. His goal was to grow old with his children and grandchildren.

Tim might have had a lot of loves, but his greatest was his family.

Surviving are his children, Tawni (Alex) Timmons-Risse, Coty Timmons, and Jacquelyn “JC” Ciara Timmons (Jacob Abbott); brother Terry Timmons of Frankfort; sister, Pat (Mike) Bragg of Russiaville; grandchildren, Tauren Charles Risse and Liliah Abbott; and his former wife Cheri.

He is preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Bob and Les Branstetter.

The family invites you to attend a public visitation on Friday, January 15th, 2021 from 4-6 p.m. at Genda Funeral Home Frankfort. Those wishing to view the live stream of the family service lead by Greg Risse may join via on Saturday, January 16th, 2021 at 11:11 a.m. You read the time correctly. Tim was in touch with cosmic harmony. Burial will follow at Green Lawn Cemetery. A public celebration of life service with a musical tribute to Tim featuring a live performance by the band, Rock America, will commence on Sunday, January 17th, 2021 at 2:02 p.m. Where? you ask. In the garage behind the funeral home of course. Tim always played in a garage…it fits.

For the public gatherings on Friday and Sunday, Tim was adamant that we “do our part” and follow the public safety guidelines during this pandemic. Masks and social distancing will be enforced.

Tim would have you make a donation in his memory to take a look at the vast unknown we call outer space, to the Prairie Grass Observatory, c/o Camp Cullom, 6815 W Co. Rd. 200 N, Frankfort, IN 46041.

Here’s your take away from one of Tim’s favorite bands, Rush.

"Well, I say as I look back, At all the thoughts I’ve had, They reflect just what I’m learning, Yes, you know that the hardest part, Yes, I say it is to stay on top, on top of a world forever churning."
