Timothy George Wilkins Obituary

Timothy George Wilkins, beloved son of George and Mary Lou Wilkins, passed away suddenly in Alamogordo, N.M., on May 22, 2016, at the age of 63.

Tim is survived by his mother, Mary Lou Wilkins, his brother, Richard Wilkins, his sister, Diana Glanville, and his beloved nieces and nephews, Bryan, Denise, Emily and Tim.

Born and raised in Sacramento, Calif., Tim moved to New Mexico in the 1980's and home became the forests of Cloudcroft, and later the high desert near Alamogordo. Possessing a natural curiosity, he tried and excelled at a number of pursuits including working for the USFS, long-distance trucking, and most satisfyingly, becoming an award-winning chef at resorts in Cloudcroft and Kerrville, Texas. Most recently, Tim shared his good nature with the "regulars", driving the bus route between Alamogordo and Las Cruces, and establishing strong bonds with his coworkers.

Tim loved the air and light in his adopted home and began to paint prolifically later in his life. His vibrant watercolors, often with a hidden face peering out from the background, will make us smile and remember his playful and complex sides. He was also a prolific reader and usually the most educated man in the room, though he liked to keep that attribute undercover.

Tim remained an ocean-fog man at heart, spending vacations with his family and friends on the California coast. The love he had for his family and longtime friends, and their love of him, was a constant. His irresistible grin and the twinkle in his blue eyes live on in our memories. He will be missed beyond measure. Be at peace, dear one.

The Wilkins family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.
