Tim Hassell left the magic of New Mexico for a better place on September 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, Amiee and George Hanei and their children Cheyenne, Shelby, Kristin and Andrew; and his nephew Cody and Mara Fulleston and their children Gibar and Caroline.
"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, New Mexico. He loved all of you and he will be missed. There will be a memorial service later.
