Stevensville - John Charles Timmons, 63, of Stevensville passed away Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at Community Medical Center. He was born October 24, 1955 in Whitefish, MT to Patrick Charles and Marilu Ann (Finney-Freeman) Timmons. On July 20th of 1991 John joined together with Gayle Richard Timmons, the love of his life for 28 amazing years of marriage. John was the Lead Print Shop Coordinator for Missoula County Public School District for over two decades. In his younger days John was an avid outdoorsman. Growing up hunting, fishing, and riding horseback in Northwestern Montana. He was educated in the ways of the backcountry, working for the family's outfitting business in the Big Bear wilderness of the Bob Marshall. Which taught him discipline and prepared him for being a wonderful husband and an incredible father to 5 rambunctious boys. He was a proud father as he coached his boys in baseball and boxing. He attended many sporting events throughout the boy's upbringing and later in life loved attending the grand kid’s events. Family being the most important thing in John's life. He was always a mama's boy at heart and looked up to his Big Brother. Although many would think of him as being grumbly like a grizzly bear, with his huge heart, he was as gentle as a teddy bear to those he loved. He was a lifelong fan of the Dallas Cowboys and the Montana Griz, but enjoyed any athletic competition. John was a proud native Montanan, and found his little piece of paradise at the base of St.Mary's Mountain in the Bitterroots. ‘Honey, I will miss you and love you forever.

We are so sorry to hear of John's passing. I worked with John at the MCPS printshop and so enjoyed his sense of humor, his wit , that laugh and his need to play that Zepplin LOUD! I know he will be missed...he was one of a kind. Our condolences to Gayle and the whole family.

Gayle and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. John was one of a kind. I will always remember his humor and how much I enjoyed our friendship in our younger years. He could always make me laugh and I knew when something funny was going to come out of his mouth because he would get the most mischievous look in his eye. Of course I am not telling you anything you didn't already know. My guess is you more familiar with that look than anyone else and I hope you and him enjoyed much laughter in your lives. The love between you was very apparent and it is a great gift to have.
I know that he left your and your boys with many happy memories and I hope those help you get through this sad time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you and your family.
