1929 - 2012 Obituary Condolences

Born on May 27, 1929, in Glendale, Ohio, our tender-hearted and loving father took his last breath after a rousing good shave on July 2, 2012! He blessed everyone he met with his unusual sense of humor, of wonder and sincerity-he loved people! He's one of those unforgetable characters that you read about in Readers Digest. He had a vulnerability about him; an intense love for his family; he was proud of his wife, Laurellee, their children: Stephanie Timmons, Terri Walegir, Don and Kevin; grandchildren: Briana Walegir, Tyler and Dane Timmons, Kendall, Allison, Emily and Rielly Dumford, and great-grandson, Liam.

Road trips, sports and playing cards were some of his pleasures. He was especially close with his four sisters and their families and his in-laws. Laurie and Don had moved to Sacramento about seven years ago after living a lifetime in Chico.

'Big D'! 'Diener'! 'Buster'! we will all hold your spirit close and the memories we shared will live on. There's no one like you, Dad!
