Lives Lived: Bill Timbers

William “Bill” Timbers, of Lake of the Pines, died suddenly on Feb. 12 of a stroke following surgery. He was 77.

A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 28, at the Lake of the Pines clubhouse.

He was born in Sterling, Kans., on June 17, 1932. He joined the U. S. Air Force on July 12, 1949.

His future life was formed when he found his true passion while going through aeronautical and engineering classes. This gave him a love which encouraged him to further his education after the service.

Mr. Timbers followed his dreams and became a design engineer. He was able to design anything electrical or mechanical, and he could fix anything with a motor in it. He truly loved to tinker.

His greatest enjoyment was to help people.

He married Peggy on May 20, 1972, in Lake Tahoe. They always had dreams of retiring to Lake of the Pines, which they did in 1989. Mr. Timbers was active in the LOP Golf Club, SIRS and the Pinesmen. He loved his life and involvement in the community.

Mr. Timbers is survived by his beloved wife, Peggy; children, Deborah (Bob) Cross, Glen (Suzanne) Timbers and Jim Timbers; step-daughters, Kathy (Don) Harris and Debra (Jeff) Anderson; grandchildren, Jeremy (Abby) Kreuzer, Joshua Kreuzer, Justin (Wendy) Harris, Lisa (Eric) Collins, Ryan Anderson, Shane Anderson, Andrew Hyatt and Alexi Hyatt; and sister, Donna (Dwight) Deem.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be sent to a favorite charity.
