He was raised with his seven brothers and four sisters, attended school, and then began his working career as a carpenter and in home repair. His last position was with Turbine Masters, and he was always ready to go do a good day's work. He was a dedicated and loyal employee. When the working day was through, he was ready to head to the creek and do a little floating and swimming. Timmy was an avid four wheeler and dirt biking was the best. He was fond of his gaming birds and raised and rode horses whenever time permitted. There was no one he enjoyed spending time with more than his adored children and grandchildren. He possessed a wonderful sense of humor, liked to joke and cut up, and just being around the family he adored. His grandchildren kept him young and there was never too much time in the company of Papa. Tim was his own man, and he followed his own rules, clear up to the day he died. Tim passed from this life on Sunday, September 8th, 2019, he was 57 years old and leaves a void that cannot be filled.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Benjamin Franklin and wife Willie Nora (Jones) Ragsdale and Bill and Elsie (Thomas) Stanley, his mother and father, and his six brothers, Blaine Ragsdale, Larry Ragsdale, Mark Ragsdale, and Dale Ragsdale, Tommy Wayne Ragsdale and Joe Michael Ragsdale.
