Timothy Lukachik

July 7, 1949May 23, 2019

Timothy L. Lukachik, 69, of Locust Grove, Virginia left this world for the next on the 23rd of May, 2019. For all that knew Tim, knew that he was an honorable person with a strong moral core and an avid enthusiast of life. Tim had a spirit full of generosity and kindness, having never met a stranger that did not become a friend or family. He leaves his legacy in his six children, in his seven grandchildren, and in the thousands of students who shared in his classroom for over forty years. Tim had an everlasting passion for life, always embracing the positive facets of life. He was an outdoor aficionado, never shying away from an opportunity to fish, to play football, or to simply sit outdoors and watch the sky. Tim had a zany sense of humor, finding laughter in the simplest of things and never took himself too seriously. He loved corny jokes, he loved peanut butter and ice cream-separately, not together, he loved Hallmark Channel movies, he loved Christmas, he loved God, but mostly he loved people. To Tim, life was fantastic. To us, Tim was fantastic. A private celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Virginia Association of Science Teachers at https://vast.wildapricot.org/Donate. Online condolences may be sent at mullinsthompsonfredericksburg.com

My sincere condolences to the family, and my thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. Tim was a wonderful friend, a spirited co-worker and an awesome human being, as he was the type of person who made you a better person just by being around him. Tim's constant uplifting spirit and attitude were often infectious at Eagle Ridge and you could hear him roaming the halls every morning reminding us that things were "fantastic"!
I miss hearing the family stories, the football stories, and the stories of days past as a teacher in several different districts, towns and states throughout his career. I'll miss Tim's posts showing pictures of just how much he loved his family and how much he loved to play with his grandchildren. Please celebrate Tim's life and know that he was loved and adored by just about anyone who had the pleasure to know him!

I worked with Tim at both Sterling Middle and Eagle Ridge. As an administrator, I always knew that students were safe, happy, and learning in Tim’s classroom. His students benefited not only from his knowledge of science, but also his kind heart. What a truly good man! My thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues. 🙏🏽

Tim loved to cook! I teach cooking at ERMS and one day he asked if he could come and demonstrate pumpkin rolls! I agreed and so, he came into my class with his daughter and taught all my students how to bake, ice, roll and enjoy pumpkin rolls. He made such a difference in the lives of students and he thoroughly enjoyed all he did! I will miss him greatly, but so glad to have the memory of him working side my side with his daughter in my kitchens:)

I remember my Uncle Tim, as a caring , loving and humorous man. As a young girl, my sister and I looked forward to the weeks my mom let us stay at our grandparents. Tim was a big part of our summer memories. He was a loving little brother to my mom. He was a good father. He was spiritual and connected to God with a strong faith. I was blessed to be his niece.

Even in the briefest of meetings in the most stressful of times, your dad's smile, warmth and humor shone through.

Tim was a very special person to work with. He always had a smile and never had anything negative to say. He always talked about his children and grandchildren with so much pride. Tim will be missed greatly.
My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God give you the peace that you seek.

I was your nurse.
We laughed together because you’re the only guy I know that was happy watching lifetime movies all day long.
You had a great attitude and sense of humor, and it was so easy to see the love you had for your children.
You were one of 6 of my patients that shift, and I enjoyed being by your side the most.
It was a blessing to be your nurse.

I remember the day I interviewed Tim for a science position at Sterling Middle. It was obvious he was qualified but what struck me the most was his attitude toward teaching and children. After we ended our conversation I thought to myself what a nice man he was and how any child in his class would benefit from his positive attitude and love of teaching. He will be missed...thoughts and prayers to the family.
