Tim was born in Forest Grove, Oregon in May 1947 and passed away surrounded by his loving family, in his daughter and son in laws home in Battle Ground Washington, on Monday, June 28th, 2021.
Tim loved to help people unconditionally and was very generous with friends, family, or complete strangers. He loved gag gifts, sarcasm, and laughter. We are all sure his favorite child was Gizmo, his dog, and he spoiled him rotten.
He was at his best when he was outdoors with family and friends, especially if he was at Spruce Run campground in Oregon. Hot rods and boats would bring a sparkle to his eyes, like a child on Christmas morning. Above all, he enjoyed sitting on his deck, around the table he had made, visiting with his friends that would stop by frequently.
Anyone who knew him, loved him dearly.
Tim loved old western books. Smoke Jenson was one of his favorite Cowboys. However, no one was tougher than John Wayne. He enjoyed working with his hands. He was creative, resourceful, and loved fun toys and all gadgets.
He was a humble and grateful friend of Bill W. for over 38 years and never failed to give all credit to God. He came to believe and fully understood that each day is a gift of grace, and he did his best to live the basic life principles he had learned so many years ago.
He was preceded in death by his mother & father, Hubert & Ruth, and his older brother, John.
He leaves behind five adult children: Tammy Lorentz (Terry) of Battle Ground, Washington, Anthony Shaver (Nikki) of Vancouver, Washington, Scott Shaver of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Teresa Rosentiel of Beaverton, Oregon, and Cory Kalteich of Milwaukie, Oregon.
We look forward to sharing his stories with his grandchildren: Scott Platt (Katy), Haleigh & Danielle Lorentz, Antonia Remsing (Zach), Jedidiah & Bethany Shaver, Titus, Audra, Justus, & Annelise Shaver, Andrea, Tristan, and Maddax.
He was also blessed with seven Great grandchildren: Hannah, Keith, Coulson & Faith Platt, and Adrian, Addy, and Riley.
