CHARLES LACY After a long, hard fought, battle we are sad to announce the death of (C.C.) Tim Lacy. Charles Cecil (Tim) Lacy was born in Dennison, TX on July 8th, 1934 to Byron and Ruth Lacy. Tim led an adventurous and full life. He graduated high school at 16, then joined the Navy 2 weeks after his 17th birthday. He was soon to serve aboard USS Hamil (1951-52), USS Cunningham (1952), and USS Oliver Hazard Perry (52-55) in the Korean War. After being honorably discharged, he returned to the Tri Cities where he met the love of his life, Sandra. They were married for 59 wonderful years and raised 4 children. Tim worked as a surveyor for The Corps of Engineers until 1970; he then joined local 598 Plumbers and Steamfitters Union. Tim taught surveying and math for the union for 31 years and furthered his education at Perdue University to assist in this endeavor. Tim spent many years working on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. He also worked on the Alaskan Oil Pipeline and as a piping engineer for R.U.S.T Engineering before retiring in 1996. Tim was preceded in death by his son Tobin, his parents Byron and Ruth, and his brother, Mike. Tim is survived by his loving wife Sandra, his children Tim (Marty), Pat (Buffie), and Sandy (Les), his sister Patty (Merv), ten grandchildren, six great-grandsons, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Per Tim's request, there will be no funeral services however, a simple, graveside interment will take place at Desert Lawn Memorial in Kennewick on Saturday, August 27th at 10:00 AM.
