~~~~~

Timothy Wayne Baraw was born April 16th,1958 to Darlene and Harold Baraw in Rockville, Connecticut. He was the second of five children; brothers Bill, Andy, Pete and sister Bonnie.

Tim grew up in Connecticut, spending his summers on Salem Lake in Vermont.

His passion for work began as a small boy with a paper route, working all through his life, this drive brought him to Big D Metalworks in Dallas,Texas where he worked as a project manager. One of his biggest projects was building the Perot Museum, where he actually got to meet Ross Perot (a fact he was mighty proud of!). Tim met many good friends through his years with Big D Metalworks to include those with The Scorpions.

In 1980, Tim had twin daughters Jessica and Rachael Young. Jessica giving him grandsons Sean and Ryan, Rachael giving him grandson Joseph.

In the late 1980’s Tim moved to Florida. There he married and had his daughter Melissa in 1991. Melissa giving him grandsons Kolby and Michael, and granddaughter Danielle.

Tim met his wife Sally in 1994 when their separate broken roads brought them together, forming a new path toward a “Happily Ever After”. They married March 15th, 1997. This brought three step children into his life, Sherri with husband Tom and granddaughter Amanda, Sheila with husband Mike and grandchildren Kristen, Nathan, Justin and Zachary. He also gained a stepson, John.

Tim loved to cook, especially barbecuing. Sons-in-law Tom and Mike often fighting over the prime rib bones!

Holidays you would find him in the kitchen or behind the camera.

Tim enjoyed fishing, crossword puzzles and tormenting the dogs! He loved nature and would spend hours sitting out back enjoying the breeze and watching the birds. On a good day, you’d catch him shooting squirrels with a water gun...when Sally wasn’t looking.

Tim and Sally shared a special bond often lost in their own shenanigans. Everyone knew “Honey Bunny” (Sally) was the center of Tim’s world. Thanks to social media, friends and family were able to be a part of their silly times as well as their happy life.

Tim was a fun loving and loyal friend. Lifelong friends George Jones and Marty Young can be found in many family pictures. Although Marty has recently passed on, George has been a source of strength throughout Tim’s battle and a rock for Sally to lean on.

Tim’s family was by his side as often as time allowed. John down the hall, Sheila and Mike always a call away and Sherri, Amanda and Tom traveling from Florida.

In-laws Carol and Bill and Niece Laurie continue to be another source of great strength and love. Carol and Bill would often go to doctor appointments with Tim and Sally.

Tim's Loving Wife Sally and Son John were by his side when God called him home.

Tim you will be sorely missed. The first time we met Tim was at Sherri & Tom's wedding. We could see then that he was head over heels in love with Sally. Tim was ever the jokester...he would start and then we would be drawn in until Sally would give him "the look" and say "TIMOTHY" ...he would say "yes dear" and just keep up the shenanigans ...it was a riot! Tim had to leave us because GOD needed his sense of humor. He was generous, kind, funny, AND most of all he loved his honey bunny (Sally) with his whole heart and soul. He fought the good fight until it was time to go...as he leaves behind many brokenhearted family and friends...we need to remember he is no longer in any pain and he is keeping the angels lahghing. This photo is my favorite memory of Tim.

'Tim' aka 'Dad' famously 'Popa',

24 years ago, I never would have dreamed we would be here today.
Today is too soon.
13 1/2 months ago, I prayed we would not be here today.
Today is too soon.
Over the past 2 weeks I sat with you and held your hand but I could not find the proper time to say to you anything beyond ~ I Love You ~

You have been an amazing father. You provided me strength, courage and promise through my brightest days and my darkest of days.
From the death of my father to the death of Kevin, you were there for me. ~ I'm looking to you now for the same strength, I just know it will be in a different form than I'm used to.

~ Thank you, for accepting me and loving me.
~ Thank you, for accepting my children and loving my children.

There were no rules that said you had to. Even obligation does not bring acceptance or love ~ that alone comes from character and heart.

I will never forget what an amazing man you are.
I will never look at a morning moon the same again,
Love your daughter, Sheila

Though short lived in Connecticut, it was long enough to form strong connections & forever memories. I believe it's quality that matters & not quantity.
Proof being in the story I repeat often in how our family here was reminiscing those memories & wondering what ever happened to you & your family. We wondered if any of you ever wondered what happened to us the way we did all of you. Lol A few short weeks later you friend requested me on Facebook. Just goes to show the bond & how life goes full circle. Loved seeing Bonnie & your mom here & later you! Although we didn't see you much, know that we love you, the connection will never be broken, & will miss you! Till we round that circle once more, & we meet again my friend. My condolences to you, Sally, Darlene, & all of your families.

Tim as a young boy was a neighbor of mine. His mom Darlene and I became good friends. We raised our kids together on Mary Lane in Vernon. Our two yards became one big yard that all the Baraw and Lupacchino children played in. Swing sets and my husband Dom build a sand box for they all to play in and the two moms played badminton. Tim you will be missed and in my heart forever. I can picture you in the yard. Also , so glad you came to see us here in Delaware.

I met Tim once. A long time ago. He seemed like a great guy. And he loved my best friend Sally. That was all that mattered.
Time flew by....... Years for that matter.
Tim is now at peace. No more pain. No more suffering.
May he rest in peace....

My brother. The one who always looked out for me through thick and thin. Brandie and Kyle loved you so much. Your sense of humor never to be outshone by anyone. I'll miss your mischievous smile and your little pranks. I loved visiting the Perot museum with you. You were incredibly proud of the work you did there. You are in my heart and soul forever. I love you Timmy.
