AGE: 61 • Wilmington

Timothy D. Ward, 61, of Wilmington, DE peacefully passed away on Monday, January 4, 2016.

Tim was born in Wilmington on July 29, 1954, son of the late Paul and Mary Jessie (McMahon) Ward. A career bricklayer and stonemason, he was a proud, active member of Bricklayer's Local #1. Tim was a true artist who was passionate about his work and had a very keen eye for detail. He was very generous with his time and talent, and would often manage several jobs at once.

Tim was happiest spending time with his family and friends. He was very proud to have built his home in Rock Hall, MD, where he enjoyed hosting crab feasts and other gatherings. Tim possessed a strong spirit and presence, and he fought valiantly to overcome his illness.

Tim will be dearly missed by his wife, Edwina Nowland; his daughters, Stephanie Levin and husband, Jared, and Genevieve Ward Swenson and husband, Erik; and his grandchildren, Owen Roy, Lillian Elisabeth, Emmeline Louise and Henry Ward. He is also survived by his siblings, Paul Ward (Ranney), Kait Ward Best (Fred), Geoffrey Ward (Sandi), Barbara Ward Werrett and Roy Jones (CJ); and his nieces, nephews and extended family members. Tim was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth Ward Allen, and is survived by her husband, Don.

A visitation will be held at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Pike Creek on Friday, January 8 from 10:00 - 11:00AM. Funeral services will immediately follow. Interment will be held privately.
