Timmy Tufford

11 March, 194711 June, 2021

Timothy Nathaniel Tufford – Also known as Tim or Timmy – of Arvada and most recently Aurora, Colorado, passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 11th, 2021.

Born and raised in Denver, Co Timothy took up the family tradition of painting & maintenance. He was a devout Catholic and a member of the St. Anne’s church in Arvada, Co. As an avid record collector, who loved playing guitar up at his ‘cabi-shack’ in Evergreen, Co, he could often be found drinking a beer and snuggling his pup Splash while singing along to his favorite songs.

Timmy’s memory will carry on through his life partner Linda Reeves and her children, his stepchildren, Elaine, Joyce & Ralph, his younger brother Dean and several nieces and nephews. He has been reunited with his mother and father, Hazel & Richard, his brother Al, sister Millie and brother Daryl, along with several other family members and friends.

The memorial service will be held for Tim at the Crown Hill Olinger’s chapel on Friday, July 2nd, 2021, at 6pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Denver Dumb Friends League in Timmy's name or leave a memory at his memorial webpage https://bit.ly/35Giv4V

After a lifetime of taking care of everyone else’s needs, now the Lord can return that kindness to you.

I want to share a few memories about my Stepfather, Tim.

When I was little, he taught me how to tie my shoes.

On Sundays, we had family dinner and had to get dishes done so we could watch Walt Disney on TV.

He told me how he loved going on vacation as a family-- those were good times!

Tim enjoyed music, playing his guitar and he loved dancing the jitterbug with my Mom, Maxine.

When I was a kid we used to go camping a lot to our favorite spot in Evergreen, CO. We also went to Glenwood Springs for a vacation and I learned how to swim because there was nobody in the pool. We went to Grand Lake to fish for a week, but we didn't catch anything. Then, on the way home, we stopped at a fish farm to catch and buy some there! When we got home we told our neighbors "we caught all of these!" This is such a funny memory and still makes me laugh! When I talked to Judy recently on the phone, I learned my Mom Maxine, brother Ralph, Tim and her went fishing and they caught alot of fish, but a beaver wanted to steal them. So Judy put them in the cooler!

My fond memory I hold close to my heart is when Tim gave me away on my wedding day to my husband Terry.

Tim had a kind heart. He was always willing to help anyone. He went to Catholic church every Sunday ans had a relationship with God.

We will miss Tim so much! We understand that Tim's in better place now per God's plan.

Love,
Elaine

On Sundays, we had family dinner and had to get dishes done so we could watch Walt Disney on TV.

We used to go camping a lot to our favorite spot in Evergreen, CO.

We also went to Glenwood Springs, CO when I was 9 years old for a vacation and I learned how to swim because there was nobody in the pool.

One time we went to Grand Lake to fish for a week but we didn't catch anything. Then, on the way home, we stopped at a fish farm and we caught some there...and paid for them. Then when we got home, we told our neighbors "we caught all of these!" It's such a funny memory and still makes me laugh.

When I talked to Judy recently on the phone, I learned that my Mom, my brother Ralph, Tim, and her went fishing and they caught a lot of fish, but a beaver wanted to steal them. So Judy put them in the cooler!

Another fond memory I hold close to my heart is that Tim gave me away on my special wedding day to my husband, Terry.

Tim had a kind heart. He was always willing to help anyone. He went to Catholic church every Sunday and had a relationship with God.

Tim will be missed by alot of people, but God had a plan for him.

Love,

Hey Tim. You know how much I thought of you! You were just a small boy of nine years the first time I was introduced to you by your sister Millie. From then on it was a special bond we shared as we kind of grew up together me being only 15 years of age. We always laughed together as we shared jokes, played games, played the guitar and sang. You never had a bad thing to say about anyone. You were always the first to jump in if someone needed help. Although we didn't see each other for such a long time because I moved from Denver. My friend Tim was always still a big part of my memories. God called home a special angel to watch over the loved ones who made up your life here on earth. You will be missed by a lot of people Tim, because you are loved by everyone who knew you.

Uncle Tim your truly missed but we all know your in a much better place! You thought me so much over the years how to paint, play guitar shoot I remember the day you took me to buy my first guitar. You always had a huge heart and always willing to help anyone and everyone. I remember you taking me to the cabin letting me ride your motorcycle and of course you playing your guitar to any song you heard times I would run into out of the blue in black hawk. Always there to cheer on the Broncos. We love you Tim. God bless you and until we see each other again we will always miss you and think about you.. love you the Crandell’s
