Timothy Hillary O’Hara
Timothy Hillary O’Hara lost his fierce battle with Dementia March 15th, 2022. He was born July 21st, 1952 in Minneapolis, MN and spent most of his years living in Bonney Lake, WA. It was there he worked for Boeing and raised his family later retiring to Cape Coral, FL. Tim was also a well-respected soccer referee for over 20 years.
Timothy O’Hara is survived by his wife, Patricia; his son, Michael, his daughter, Hillary (Jeff); his grandchildren, Payton and Patrick; his sisters, Susie and Kathy (Melvin); and several nieces and nephews.
Tim joins his son, Patrick; granddaughter, Zoe; mother, Delaine; and brother, Mike awaiting him in heaven.
He will always be remembered for his strength, integrity, humor, sarcasm and his hilarious t-shirts that inspired laughter (and disgust) everywhere he went. Tim is often referred to as a hero by his children as he taught them through example and expression with his endless support. His and Patty’s love is infinite, and they spent 48 wonderful years married. He would say to everyone “Shut Up!” and “Quit Crying!” We will miss you always Mr. Referee, Dad, Brother, Uncle, Friend, Love, and Hero.
We watch him drift away like the sun setting into the horizon during sunset—only he won’t make tomorrows sunrise. We soak in terrifying talk from doctors while the television is singing Kenny Chesney’s country hum. We know we’ll see him again someday but why must we lose him?
Some people don’t believe in heroes. But they haven’t met my Dad!
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and time to dance…
No formal services are planned at this time.
Memorial Contributions in memory of Timothy Hillary O’Hara are suggested to Hope Hospice, 9470 Healthpark Circle, Fort Myers, FL 33908.
