Timothy Scott Culver, 63, peacefully passed away on July 2, 2018 at his Frisco Lakes home in Frisco, TX from Neuroendocrine cancer.
Born in Flint, MI to Audrey and Lowell Culver in 1955; he grew up in Coshocton, OH and began his love of golf at the Town & Country Club. Tim was a star golfer on the Coschocton High School’s District Championship winning golf team and was an avid golfer all of his life. He often described his upbringing as a Beaver Cleaver childhood. He enjoyed youth sports, playing piano, and having fun with his neighborhood pals. Summers were spent at Vince Costello and Dick Schafrath’s Sky View Boy’s Camp and taking family road trips to visit grandparents in the Everglades.
Tim graduated from Miami University, Oxford OH in 1977 and moved to Dallas, TX with his belongings in a station wagon. His professional life spanned four decades in the financial services industry, most recently with PNC Business Credit. In 2012, Tim was honored with a trip to Pebble Beach as a select member of PNC’s Chairman’s Circle. He spent several days thoroughly enjoying golfing at The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill, and the legendary Pebble Beach Golf Links. Throughout his career, he willingly mentored anyone who asked for his help – and also those who didn’t realize they needed his help. He loved getting a rise out of people with his quirky sense of humor.
Tim loved planting a vegetable garden and sharing the crop with neighbors and friends. He was a big-hearted supporter of English Springer Rescue America where he adopted several wonderful spaniels. Sparky is the most recent addition to the family, arriving at Christmas 2011. Tim and Sparky enjoyed cruising around Frisco Lakes in the golf cart. Tim looked forward to annual vacations to a Caribbean beach or traveling the world with Rick Steves tours. His last vacation in 2017 included a round of golf near Dingle, Ireland.
Tim will be remembered as a man of high standards, integrity, and intelligence. If perfect attendance still mattered he would win every year. For three and half years after being diagnosed with stage IV neuroendocrine cancer, Tim made the hour long commute to his desk in downtown Dallas. He never complained of the many side effects of the cancer or the numerous treatments and medical procedures he endured up to the very end. He was the best stepdad a girl could ever ask for and all three of his stepdaughters loved him dearly. He was patient and thoughtful, but could also be such a goofball at times. His girls have many delightful memories of his silly antics. On occasion, he would cut loose and sing along to his favorite music. Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Commander Cody, David Allan Coe, Leon Redbone, and Paul Simon were on heavy rotation when the mood was right.
Tim was preceded in death by his parents Audrey and Lowell Culver.
Survivors include the love of his life, wife Shanna Culver of Frisco, TX, stepdaughters Clarissa Brockway of Brooklyn, NY, Cayla Brockway of Plano, TX, and Stephanie Pevehouse and husband Jeff, step grandchildren Ashlynn, Aiden, Alec and Caden of Celina, TX, sisters Suzanne Collie and husband Griffin of Highland Park, TX, and Cindy Culver of Dallas, TX, nephews Christopher Collie and wife Jenny of Dallas, TX, and Clayton Collie of Dallas, TX, and Sparky (his much-loved English Springer Spaniel rescue). A life well lived, always in our hearts.

Just heard about this recently. Tim was a high school buddy back in Coshocton, OH. Had not seen him for several years and am saddened to hear of his passing.
Although not heard from him in years, memories of our friendship through the high school years, and college are not to be forgotten. He encouraged me in many ways in those times.
May God Bless his family and friends!

Prayers to the family.

I am an old friend from Tim’s Coshocton days. We affectionately called him “Hackey” and NOT because he was a bad golfer but quite the contrary. My prayers to all his loved ones including little sister Cindy who I still remember!
