LORAIN – Timothy L. "The Big Man" Brumback, age 56, of Lorain, went to be with his Lord on Saturday June 28th, 2014 following a lengthy illness. He was born in Lorain on November 25, 1957 and remained a life-long resident of the city. Tim attended Admiral King High School and graduated in 1976.

He was also active in the drama program at the school and served as a cast member in a host of the group's productions. Outside of the school, he was a member of the swim team at the Riviera Swim Club.
Following his graduation, he went on to attend The Ohio State University where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Business. He subsequently received his Master's Degree in Education from Ashland University.
For the past quarter century Tim had been employed by the Lorain Board of Education as a teacher at Washington Avenue Elementary School; he was a long-time member of the Lorain Education Association.
