CANFIELD - Thomas E. Timlin Sr., 79, passed away Wednesday evening, April 10, 2019, at St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital.

Thomas was born on April 26, 1939, in Youngstown, the son of the late Frank and Kathryn Timlin.

He was a 1957 graduate of The Rayen School and a proud veteran of the U.S. Army. He worked at Youngstown Steel Door and St. Elizabeth Hospital in Environmental Services until he retired.

He had a great love for all sports. He was Canfield High School’s biggest fan, supporting decades of students attending almost every home basketball, football, baseball, and softball game. He also loved watching all Cleveland sports teams and The Ohio State University. In his younger years he played fast pitch softball and was an avid bowler. He also loved to spend time with his family and friends.

He will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Katherine Timlin, whom he married on July 3, 1971; his son, Thomas E. Timlin II.; and his brother and sisters-in-law, Ken (Vickie) Goehring, Nora Lee (Bill) Klase, Dee (Jim) Higgins, Naomi (Harry) Karlen, Elva Evans, Harry (Carol) Goehring, Dale Goehring, Larry (Sarah) Goehring, Mary Goehring, and Josephine Timlin.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Tamara Timlin; brothers Arnold, Donald, Frank “Pap,” and Robert “Red” Timlin; and brothers-in-law Jerry Goehring and Jack Evans.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Timlin family to help with medical expenses.

Friends and family may visit to send their heartfelt condolences.
