Obituary of Timothy Dwayne Harris

Please share a memory of Timothy to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Timothy Dwayne Harris was born on September 28, 1973, in Monroe, Michigan.  He was the son of Bobby Wayne Harris and Joan Elizabeth (Joblinski) Harris.  He attended Airport High School.

 

A man of many talents, Tim was a gifted artist preferring the mediums of pen and ink he painstakingly sketched drawings of elephants, monsters, faces, eagles, and roses to name a few, captivating all who saw them. His endeavors didn't stop there as he also made beautiful, beaded jewelry, from necklaces to bracelets, and shared these passions with those around him.  He enjoyed journaling and writing poems.

 

At an early age, Tim developed a love for the simple pleasures of life and cherished every moment he spent with loved ones.  Though he never had children of his own, his natural connection with them was quite evident. He shared his time, creativity, and heart with them.  Whether it was jumping on the trampoline or surprising them with new toys, Tim knew how to care for his younger siblings and nieces and nephews.  He was a big kid himself with a huge heart. He enjoyed reading them stories and loved how they naturally gravitated towards him, recognizing his kind and playful spirit.

 

Tim felt most at peace when spending time with nature.  He loved all animals, walking to the beach, or spending time at the park.  He had a passion to care for the Earth and diligently recycled everything he could.

Although he was always up for an adventure and the first to hop behind the wheel for a road trip, his willingness to help around the house was truly appreciated by his father. 

 

Timothy Dwayne Harris, age 50 of Monroe passed away unexpectedly at ProMedica Toledo Hospital on Monday; May 13, 2024.  At his passing, Tim gave the gift of life to others through his selfless donation of organs and tissues through Life Connections of Ohio.  His passing was preceded by a brother: Nathan in 2008; a nephew: Jace Smith in 2018; and his maternal and paternal grandparents.

 

To cherish his memory, he leaves his parents: Bobby and Joan Harris of Monroe; five siblings: Raina Harris, Jacob Harris, Billy Harris (Dr. Anastasia Floros), Bobby Harris Jr., and Scott (Lenee) Harris all of Monroe; and many nieces and nephews.
