He worked for 31 years in the Rumford paper mill as a millwright and retired as a certified journeyman mechanic in 2012.

Tim was an expert skier which was helpful when he served on the Ski Patrol. He was an avid golfer with the accomplishment of not one but two hole in ones. He was a member of Oakdale Country Club for many years which included serving on its Board of Directors. He especially enjoyed those early morning gangbusters.

He also leaves behind two sisters, Nancy Townsend of Livermore Falls and Sandra Chambers of Jay and two brothers, Tom Chambers and his partner Pam Lane of Portland and Michael Perry and wife Patty of Richmond, VA.
