Decker, Timothy Leigh – Tim, not Timmy, passed away suddenly and peacefully on June 3, 2021 in Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro, at the age of 59.
Tim crashed into the world in Middle Musquodoboit and the lives of the Decker family were never the same again. He was a hyper child who was always making trouble, into trouble or hurting himself. Tim was always the instigator of many family laughs. He had a huge heart but was known as the “grumpy old man” by his family. Tim worked on dairy farms in the area, and in Ontario for 20 plus years as a carpenter and later as a grader operator for Will-Kare Paving and more recently with Basin Contracting. He loved to hunt and fish, had a great interest in guns and berry-picking. We are left wondering where the secret blackberry bush is.
Surviving are siblings, Aaron (Cecilia), Dartmouth; Jeannette (Mark), Upper Stewiacke; David (Stéphane), Ottawa; Lorraine (John), Upper Musquodoboit; brother-in-law, Wayne, Chalk River, ON; and his chosen brother, Stephen Johnson, Upper Stewiacke; nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly, Tamara, Brittany, Devon, Natalie, Hannah, Maggie. He will be dearly missed by his dog, Alex who was his companion for 18 faithful years.
Tim was predeceased by his parents, Ernie and June; sister, Iris; brother, Garth.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation or a local SPCA.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
