Timothy "Tim" Adam WokaschApril 18, 1953 ~ May 3, 2017 (age 64)
With family at his side, Timothy Wokasch, 64, left us to join his parents Ignatius and Lillian Wokasch on May 3rd, 2017. Tim was born on April 18th, 1953 in Minnesota. He served honorably in the US Navy and went on in life to work in construction after his discharge.
His wife, Janet Wokasch and children, with their spouses: Melissa, Wesley and Amanda, Bryan and Lynsie will remember Tim everyday through his grandchildren: William Isaac O’Hern, Benjamin Patrick O’Hern, Ethan William Wokasch, Vivian Kate Wokasch O’Hern, Mikayla Grace Wolf, Annie Marie Wokasch and the youngest who shares his name, Timothy Fisher Wokasch. He is the first of his siblings: Mike, Mary, Bob, Tom, Greg, Jeannie, and Teresa to move on from us.
Tim dabbled many trades and activities, in constant motion. From welding to finish carpentry to a children’s book about a catfish, he stayed busy. He did have one passion that stood above others, his love of fishing. Even in his later years with limited mobility Tim learned how to tie a fishing knot with one hand and manufactured a way to carry on his passion from bait to pulling his catch to the bank.
Tim touched the lives of those around him with his friendly, playful attitude and outlook on life. Tim would have very specific quirky instructions on how to mourn his passing had the conversation occurred. Sarcastic directions, while knowing full well his only concern after his passing would be that his family is at peace and remember him in his spirit of a man who enjoyed his own sense of humor a little too much and would look to spend this time celebrating his life.
A service to celebrate his life will be held 2:00 pm, Saturday, May 6, 2017 at L. Harold Poole Funeral Service Chapel, 944 Old Knight Rd., Knightdale, NC 27545 with Military Honors.
The family will receive relatives and friends prior to the service from 12:30 to 1:45 pm at the funeral home and other times at the home of Bryan & Lynsie Wokasch, 238 Alamo Court, Clayton, 27527.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to MAD Morehead City, Military Appreciation Day, Inc., P.O. Box 77453, Charlotte, NC 28271-7010.
