Paul “Tim” Timothy Phipps, 53, passed away March 10th, 2020 at Union Hospital in Terre Haute. Tim was born Sept 24th 1966 in Terre Haute, IN to Paul M Phipps and Linda L (Wright) Phipps. He graduated from Columbus East HS in 1985, and Olivet Nazarene University with a double BA in History and Religion, and an MA in Religious Studies. Tim was a loving husband to Tammy for over 20 years. She was and always will be the love he waited for and needed in his life. He was also the loving father of Megan, Nathan, and Landan.

Tim’s professional career spanned over 25 years in logistics and procurement strategies and leadership. He worked the last 18 years at Sony in multiple positions; most recently as Manager of Procurement and Artwork Services at Sony DADC.

Tim’s interests always started with his family first but were vast and detailed, or as Megan said, “he geeked out”. He was a lifelong fan of IU basketball. History, especially the Civil War, was a passion for Tim. As a historian, Tim collected a series of stories in an unpublished book around his ancestors and Parke County during the Civil War. As a genealogist, Tim was an active member, facilitator, and past President of the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society. Examples of his successes in these fields include the use of traditional genealogy with new DNA research to solve a century old family paternity mystery in 2017. He also submitted five applications to the Indiana Genealogical Society for the Society of Civil War Families. All five applications with his documented proof of lineage for each generation was accepted by the IGS (two from his mother’s side, and three from his father’s). But most important to Tim, he always had time to research and learn every interest of his children including wrestling, choir, soccer, and even Call of Duty.

Tim was preceded in death by his mother, Linda L. Phipps and both his maternal and paternal grandparents.

Tim is survived by his wife of 20 years, Tammy Phipps; his three children, Megan, Nathan, Landan; his father, Paul M. (Beth) Phipps; two sisters, Luanne (Mike) Ludwig, Aimee Phipps; one brother, Jim (Senem) Phipps; 12 nieces and nephews; one great nephew; and 2 great nieces.

Visitation will be Saturday, March 14 2020 at Roselawn Funeral Home from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The funeral service will begin at 12:00pm with Pastor Paul M. Phipps officiating with burial to follow at Roselawn Memorial Park. Online condolences can be made at www.roselawnfuneralhome.net.

I have had the pleasure to work with Tim as a supplier to Sony for the past 15 or so years. We have enjoyed many laughs and stories over lunches or dinners away from the plant. I always enjoyed hearing updates of Tim's children and family. My condolences go out to the Phipps family in this difficult time.

Dear Paul and Beth,

I just saw Tim's obituary in the Tribune-Star (1:00p.m., March 14) so I don't have time to make myself presentable to talk with you in person at Roselawn Funeral Home. I did not know Tim but he sounds like a wonderful young man. My thoughts and heart are with you.

Sincerely,
Robbie PIper

To Tim's family: I send you my condolences. I got to know Tim through my membership and participation in the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society. Tim always had a positive attitude and willingly shared his knowledge and encouragement regarding genealogical research. His leadership brought out the best in others and greatly strengthened our organization. He was kind man who we will all miss. A positive influence overall!
Farewell, Tim. May you rest in peace!

James Kane, VP; Wabash Valley Genealogy Society.

Dear Tammy & Children,
Please know how our hearts ache for you all in your loss of your husband/father, Timothy. He was such an upbeat person and was so liked and admired by all of us at WVGS and will be so missed.
Herschel and I are so happy that we got to know him, aside from the genealogy classes, as a distant cousin in the Phipps lines. Our son, Steven & wife Julia Riley worked with Tim at DADC for years. The two of men compared info on their relatives and decided they were related. So our relationship/ interest in roots continued from there. Tim & the children came to at least two of the family reunions held in Rockville each July.
It was truly a pleasure to know that he knew and loved GOD, and he so often spoke so proudly of you Tammy as well as Megan, Nathan and Landan.
We pray that the LORD JESUS will hold you all in HIS loving arms and comfort you all through you sorrow.
Hugs and Blessings to all of you,
Your cousins, Herschel & Betty Riley

I had the honor of knowing Tim through attending several of the DNA Interest classes that he led at the Vigo Co. Public Library. He was always prepared and very professional in his presentations and also very patient with everyone's questions. He went above and beyond with helping me understand the information that I received through DNA testing. I noticed in the obituary that Aimee was listed as Tim's sister and I am pretty sure that I know Aimee through the El Shaddai Emmaus Community. My deep and sincere sympathy to all that knew and loved Tim. Sherri Hughes, Brazil

We have a word for special individuals like Tim ' spiffing'
Kind, super friendly, respectful, genuine and put simply a jolly good egg!
I often visited from England for a number of years where after a business meeting we would enjoy a great time at the Stables steak house and a few too many beers!
I cannot believe you have left us old bean but your legacy will live on in a beautiful family - I was very lucky to have the honour of knowing you

I’ll never forget the night I spoke with Tim after he met Tammy. He was never sad or depressed (he was too purposeful for that), but you could tell he wanted, no needed, a wife and family of his own. But he was soooo picky. I won’t go down the checklist, but I began to feel he would never find exactly what he wanted or needed... then Tammy. When we spoke, he was so excited to tell me about her. It’s been over 20 years, but if I remember correctly, he drove up and met her after her work. He was impressed by her education, that she was nurse, obviously found her attractive, but then he said they talked for hours on the very first meeting. If you knew Tim, you know how much he loved and valued long talks. My first thought was to caution him and tell him might be letting his heart move too fast. But I could hear it in his voice and excitement, nothing and no one was going to slow this down, his heart was already taken.

Tim was an incredible person and especially father. I had the privilege of coaching his son Landon in soccer and Tim was always at practice. He would help were needed and was always the parent to stay and chat, ask questions, extend gratitude and support. The community has lost and exceptional human being! My family and I extend our most sincere condolences and we are truly saddened by this grest loss!! We will pray for you daily as you face the days ahead and journey through.

Blessings,
