Tim Hassell left the magic of New Mexico for a better place Friday, Sept. 28, 2012. He was born in Seminole, Texas, on June 12, 1955. He and his parents moved to Ruidoso in 1970, and he graduated from Ruidoso High School in 1974.
He is survived by his parents, Howard and Arveta Hassell; his sister and brother-in-law Teri and Rick Button; his niece and her husband Aimee and George Hanei and their children Cheyenne, Shelby, Kristin and Andrew; and his nephew Cody and Mara Fullerton and their children Gibar and Carolina.
"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same." Tim was "The Fedex Man" for Tularosa and Bent. He loved all of you and he will be missed. There will be a memorial service later.
