Timothy “Tim” D. Shallow
Timothy DeWayne Shallow, 61, a resident of St. James City, FL for the past 30 years, formerly of Detroit, MI, passed away Friday, January 25, 2019 in St. James City. He was born July 8, 1957 in Vanderbilt, MI.
Timothy was of the Christian faith. Tim was an avid golfer and never missed a Saturday golf game in 25 years. He cherished the time he was able to spend with his closest friends, which was likely because he met his match with the constant ribbing that ensued at the crack of dawn in the first tee box or claims he made of missing his real calling in life. Unfortunately, the PGA has minimum requirements for both God given talent and height. But his love for the game and creative custom club fittings exceeded any professional tour requirements. The usual tam accessory was also part of the dream…. then there were the dwarf bowling aspirations but let’s keep things light here.
Later in life, Tim became an ordained minister and officiated his son Gary’s wedding. It was obvious that he was beaming with pride for the important role he played that special day and it remains one of the many fond memories we all share of him.
Nothing came before his family. He lived out the first 9 chapters of what a book of a true Family Man entails, and this will serve as a small attempt to write the final chapter. Faithful husband, father, papa, son, brother, friend and hero to all that knew him. He worshipped his wife of 42 years, Lee Ann, and expressed it through many of his whacky and zany ways. We were all blessed to witness a true man’s love for his true love in life.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 42 years, Lee Ann Shallow of St. James City; loving mother, Margaret Shallow of St. James City; two loving children, Gary Shallow (Kasey) of Pine Island, FL and Dee Brennan (James), also of Pine Island; four siblings, Sandra Davenport (Tom) of VA, Rodney Shallow (Cathy) of NC, Ronda Young (James) of Venice, FL and Randy Shallow of Detroit, MI; nine grandchildren; one great grandchild; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Timothy was preceded in death by his father, Joseph P. Shallow; as well as two siblings, Gary Shallow and Lynda Long.
No formal services are planned at this time.
Memorial Contributions in memory of Timothy Dewayne Shallow are suggested to Hope Hospice, 9470 Healthpark Cir., Fort Myers, FL 33908.
