Tim Tashjian

Tim Tashjian Farmer/Real Estate Broker Tim Tashjian, 56, of Exeter came into this world on June 5, 1956. He was born to Harry and Patty (Jones) at the Exeter Memorial Hospital. He left this world abruptly on November 14, 2012 to be with his Heavenly Father and his earthly father Harry. Tim spent his whole life in Exeter, the little town that he loved so much. He attended local schools, graduating from Exeter High in 1974. He attended College of the Sequoias for two years, going onto Fresno State and graduating in 1978 with a business degree. He went back to Exeter to start his careers as a real estate broker and citrus grower. He combined the two businesses for 30 years. As much as he enjoyed being a real estate broker, he had a true passion for citrus farming. He had a love of sports and an incredible athletic ability from an early age. You name them and he excelled at them; football, baseball, basketball, golf, tennis, swimming, skiing and waterskiing. But he loved baseball the most and this love continued into his adult life...following Brad Mills and the team that he was coaching. But most of all, he enjoyed spending his free time with his daughter and the rest of his family; going to the symphony, enjoying nice dinners, hosting family get-togethers at his country home and his time spent in the mountains. He had an extremely large heart and his generosity was overwhelming. One of his last grand gestures was sending six of his close family members on vacation to Ireland while his daughter was studying abroad. These memories will last a lifetime. Tim is survived by his adorable daughter Hayley Tashjian; his loving mother Patty Tashjian; little brother Jeff Tashjian and his wife Shana. His nieces Kelsey Qualls and husband Justin, Melissa Tashjian and his nephews: Harrison and Trevor Tashjian and Sean Ziegenbein. His devoted companion Efi Gregory and her son Jeff. Aunts and Uncles Alice and Jack Spalding, Leonard and Betty Ferriera, Chuck and Georgine Jones. Many cousins and friends that he loved dearly. Tim was preceded in death by his father Harry in 2011. Special thanks to the girls in his real estate office; Marietta Gray, Julie and Taylor Reynolds and Carol Kelly. He thought you were the best!
