Timothy McGill Obituary
Timothy Raymond, of Ramsey, NJ. It is with great sorrow that the McGill family announces the death of their son Timothy Raymond on September 21st. Tim was a life-long resident of Ramsey, NJ where he played junior football and was active in the DARE Street Hockey Program as well as the Ramsey Ice Hockey Association. In his junior year of high school, Tim attended the New Jersey State Police Trooper Youth Week where his sense of patriotism and military standards were formed. Tim graduated Ramsey High School in 2001 and immediately went right into the Marine Corps. He was in Boot Camp at Parris Island when the 9/11 attacks occurred and he saw action as a machine gunner in the infantry in the second battle of Fallujah while with the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force. After coming home from Iraq, Tim joined the Ramsey Fire Department as a volunteer fireman. Also, he decided that he wanted to continue his service to this country and joined the Rhode Island National Guard because they have a Special Forces Unit. Tim passed the initial phase of the training called Selection which enabled him to pursue his Green Beret. Tim underwent an extremely rigorous training sequence that typically sees an 80% drop out rate. Tim succeeded in the training and was proudly awarded his Green Beret in May of 2011. Soon thereafter he was stationed at Fort Myers in the State of Washington and was deployed to the jungles of the Philippines as part of a Special Forces successful rescue mission. In between these deployments Tim would come home and serve as a volunteer fireman in his home town of Ramsey. In January of 2013 he was assigned to the 1st Group Special Forces and was deployed to Afghanistan where he was killed by enemy gunfire on September 21st. Tim received 28 valor awards including the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. He is survived by his loving family, parents, Ray and Carol of Ramsey, sisters Megan and Lindsay and her husband Brian Vanderbeek of Mahwah and their two beautiful grandchildren, Savanna and Presleigh, Grandmother Catherine McGill of Ridgewood, Uncles Tim McGill and his wife Tina of Ramsey, Uncle Robert and his wife Huguette, Uncle Robin of Norwood, NJ and pre-deceased wife Linda, Uncle Aldo Nervegna and his wife Melanie and cousins, Nick Nervegna and his wife Alexandra of Valley Cottage, New York and Kristen Gallagher and her husband Robert of Nanuet, New York, Jessica Rickart and her husband Jake of Lowell, Michigan, Jennifer McGill and her son Jackson of Lowell, Michigan, Joel McGill of Lowell, Michigan, Ryan Gutherie and his wife Bridget and their son Cole of River Vale, NJ, Keith Gutherie and his wife Julia of Ridgefield, New Jersey.
