Our beloved son, father, husband, brother, coworker, and friend went to be with the Lord, at the age of 37, on Thursday, May 21, 2020 while surrounded by his loving family.
Tim was born on June 12, 1982 in Easton, PA to Timothy John and Lenore (Finelli) Groller of Easton.
Heaven must have needed extraordinary entertainment because Tim was always the life of any social gathering. Timothy enjoyed life to its fullest. Since his early childhood, Timothy enjoyed sports. He played soccer, baseball and was a wrestler for the Palmer Township Panthers and later for the Easton Area High School wrestling team, where he was a member of the 2001 state championship team. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and baseball card collector. He was a passionate Philadelphia Eagles, Flyers, and Phillies fan all of his life. Most importantly, Timothy was devoted to his precious family. He treasured his wife and children and enjoyed traveling to the beach, playing board games, quoits, miniature golfing, and bowling with them.
After graduation from Easton Area High School in the class of 2001, Timothy attended Bloomsburg University where he majored in Criminal Justice and graduated in 2005. In 2006 Tim entered the Allentown Police Academy to pursue a career in law enforcement. His first job was with the Lehigh County Courthouse. He later worked for the Fountain Hill Police Department. In 2007 Timothy began his lifelong career dream when he obtained his first full time position with the Carlisle Police Department. Shortly after, he met his wife Gabrielle and they started their family. Tim rose quickly through the ranks to his current position of Corporal which he obtained in 2012. While working for the Carlisle Police Department he was a responder with the SRT Team for Cumberland County.
Tim firmly committed his life to his savior, Jesus Christ, in early 2019, and was baptized in December of the same year. His amazing personality touched many lives and he will be remembered by family, friends and coworkers for the way he lit up a room when he entered. His passing will leave so many who were close to him in a complete void.
In addition to his parents, Tim is survived by his loving wife of 9 years, Gabrielle R. Groller of Camp Hill; his three children, Ava, Ella, and Timothy Paul; his brother, Jason (wife Jennifer Katz) Groller of Mechanicsburg; his mother and father-in-law, Paul and Sally (Sharp) Timmons of Carlisle; his brother and sister-in-law, Jamie (husband Brad Dyarman) Timmons of Carlisle and Benjamin (wife Stephanie Chrosniak) Timmons of Carlisle; his nephew, Owen; and many special aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Services for Tim will be private and held at the convenience of the family. A drive through visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2020 at the Hoffman Funeral Home and Crematory, 2020 West Trindle Road Carlisle, PA 17013.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be to the Groller Children Educational Fund C/O Wells Fargo Bank.
