Timothy J. Carson, 64, of White Mills, PA, passed away on February 14, 2020, peacefully surrounded by family after a devastating stroke.
Timothy, whom was most recently known as “Grandpa” was born on August 1, 1955 to Gail Willard Carson and Wilma Stout (Jenkins) in Clarksburg, West Virginia. He attended Washington Irving High School as well as the University of Maine at Presque Isle.
Tim was a veteran who served in the Gulf War as a member of the Special Forces in the United States Air Force. He spent almost 25 years in the military before he retired in 1994. He and his family traveled across the world so he could serve his country.
During this time, he met Eileen McDonald, whom he later married. They went on to raise their children, Tim M. Carson and Kristina Yankauskas (Yates).
In 2015, Tim suffered a stroke that left him with limited mobility. He spent a number of months in hospitals and rehabilitation centers but showed much strength and determination to recover so he could be home with his family.
Tim enjoyed the simple things throughout his life. The outdoors, motorcycles, and photography. Although, there was nothing he enjoyed more than being a Grandpa. He loved them all with every ounce of his being and was so proud of all of their accomplishments. He had many stories to tell and was a great listener and a supportive friend. He was also silly and loved to make others laugh.
Tim was predeceased by his parents, his wife, Eileen Carson, and his brother Gail Carson and sister Melody Carson. He is survived by his son and daughter, Tim Carson and Kristina Yankauskas. His brother Nathan Carson and his grandchildren, Kayla and Noah Yates, Keeghan Carson, and Damien and Annabel Carson, as well as his great-grandchildren Lillian and Violet Welfel.
There is a celebration of life planned for Tim to be held Saturday February 22 at the White Mills Fire Hall from 1pm to 4pm for family and friends.
Cremation was through the Kevin M. Lesjack Funeral Home, 513 Main Street, Forest City.
