Gallupville - On Friday December 3 2021, a beautiful light went out with the passing of 42 year old Timothy John Simmons. A life long resident of Gallupville, NY, Tim loved spending time with his family and others he loved and those who loved him back. He was a never ending fountain of knowledge who contributed the most interesting thoughts to any conversation. He loved being outdoors and loved country living. He never met a person in need who he didn’t help with a gift of his time, assistance with a task or plain old cash.
Left with broken hearts are his fiancé Jen Woodard, his parents Bill and Karen Simmons, his brother Shawn Simmons, sister in law Kristen Simmons, brother Justin Simmons, sister in law Jamie Simmons and his beloved nephews and niece Nathaniel, Brianna and Gavin Simmons. He was a loving Uncle who thought of the kids as his own. Tim’s most treasured love was his dog, Gus, who misses his dad terribly.
Visitation will take place Sunday, December 12th from 12p.m. to 1 p.m. at Reilly Funeral Home in Voorheesville, NY, followed by a prayer service. A celebration of life will be held at the Voorheesville Rod and Gun Club, 52 Foundry Rd., Voorheesville immediately following. Masks are required regardless of vaccination.
The family would like to thank the incredible ICU staff at St. Peter’s Hospital for the care and kindness shown to Tim and his family over the last several weeks. As his last selfless act, Tim asks those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 to reconsider their decision and help save lives.
In continuation of Tim’s devotion to his nephews and niece, the family asks that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the education funds he started for Nathaniel, Brianna and Gavin Simmons. Donations can be made online at https://gofund.me/3e79281c
