Read more about the life story of Timothy and share your memory.
Born on March 15, 1984, Timothy Patrick Gorman immediately assumed the role of cherished son, to Richard and Margaret Gorman, and baby brother to sisters, Kerry (Coonan), Stacey (Tureski), and Lori (Ruggieri). During his time as a child, Timmy enjoyed all the activities that the Kent Recreation Department offered, including Summer Camp, soccer, basketball, and baseball. Timmy attended Carmel High School before moving to South Carolina with his parents, where he became the first employee of the family’s Sandwedge Deli. While a resident of South Carolina, Timmy continued his education at Carolina Forest High School and then moved on to Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
Despite his move south, Timmy remained a steadfast New York Yankees and New York Jets fan! He enjoyed listening to music by the Grateful Dead, Phish, and Billy Joel. Timmy had a love for all animals, including his sisters’ kittens, even though he was horribly allergic. But mostly, Timmy had an exceptional love for his dog, Caddie. Timmy was most proud to make Caddie a “course dog” and enjoyed bringing her to work with him, whenever possible.
During his time with us, Timmy was best known for being a “FUN”cle to his three nieces and four nephews, Caitlin (Tureski), Karly (Coonan), Finnley (Coonan), Colin (Tureski), Rory (Coonan), Keegan (Ruggieri), and Brody (Ruggieri). “Uncle Timmy” truly enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews at the beach, cheering them on from the sidelines of baseball games, and stirring up general trouble with the kids, whenever possible. Timmy was really just a BIG KID himself, often found finishing the milk gallon and sneaking into the kitchen to steal the leftover cake and cookies in the middle of the night.
Timmy had the good fortune to work on some of the most beautiful golf courses along the east coast. Timmy left a legacy of manicured greens at East Hampton Golf Club, Gardiner’s Bay Country Club, Laurel Links Country Club, Pine Hills Golf & Country Club, Legends Golf & Resort, Man O War Golf Course, Wizard Golf Course, & most recently, Wolfert’s Roost Country Club. His brothers-in-law Thomas (Coonan), Michael (Tureski), and Michael (Ruggieri) will only think of Timmy with every stroke, putt, and drive on future rounds of golf, as they shared many memories as a golf foursome both on and off the golf course.
In Timmy’s legacy, we ask you to HUG your family (because Timmy was a “hugger”), play with your dog (because Timmy loved pets), and live every moment (because you don’t know when you run out of moments). Timmy was the “bestest” of friends to all who met him. Timmy had the biggest heart and will be missed terribly by all who truly knew him. His family will always be grateful for the time that Timmy was with us on this Earth and for those whose lives Tim impacted with his devious smile!
In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to make a donation to: Kind Keeper Animal Rescue in North Myrtle Beach, SC. (https://kindkeeper.wixsite.com/kindkeeper) This animal rescue center was special to Timmy and he spent many hours there as a volunteer in recent years. A memorial to celebrate Timothy will be scheduled at a later date. Information regarding the celebration of life will be posted prior to the date.
