Tim was born on July 25, 1962 in Rochester, NY to Angelo & Geraldine Maddalena. He grew up with 3 sisters, Toni, Traci & Tina. Tim and Karen met online and developed a rapport over a couple of months before meeting each other in person. They eventually got engaged, planned a destination wedding and married in Orlando, Florida. Tim gained two step-sons in the process, Justin Ritzel & Jeffery Boyer. Traveling with his wife to Clearwater, Florida was one of Tim’s favorite places to be as he wanted to move there. His favorite music artists were Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Tim worked in construction at Tra Mac Builders. He loved tools as he was known to be able to fix and build anything.
Tim was described by many who knew him as a nice, caring and wonderful man. He took on his cancer diagnosis like a warrior, calling it a “bump in the road.” Tim maintained his positive attitude right up until the end. Tim enjoyed riding his motorcycle and enjoyed eating delicious meals. He also loved all of his pets as if they were his children. Family was very important to Tim, he adored his wife and loved his step-sons. He treated his step-sons like his own children as he wanted to help them avoid mistakes he made during his youth. Tim loved watching Justin play hockey and listening to Jeffrey play drums at his recitals, he was very proud of them both. Tim will be deeply missed by many friends and family. He will always be fondly remembered and his legacy cherished by all who knew him.
