PEMBROKE – Timothy R. Avery, 50, hauled his final load, parked his truck at the pearly gates and gave his log book to the Lord on Aug. 26, 2013. Tim attended school in Eastport, Robbinston and Calais, and served in the National Guard. He was a truck driver for many years. He spent many hours hunting, trapping, fishing and in his garage working on anything with a motor. Tim’s sense of humor and his ability to create laughter at all times was his gift to all who knew him. He was creative and enjoyed sketching and painting. Tim was the “Equine Transport Engineer” at First Light Farm Equine Shelter in Perry. He was a member of the DownEast Border Riders Saddle Club. He was also a member and chief of the Mattawamkeag Fire Dept and a member of the Robbinston Volunteer Fire Dept.
He will always be loved and remembered by his wife of 25 years, Amy; and his cherished daughter, Anna. Tim is also survived by his mother, Charlene; stepfather, Bob; brothers, Bob and Liz and Jamie and Sheila; his sister, Brenda; his father-in-law, Donald and Marlene; and brothers-in-law, Gene and Maureen, Donny and Daphne, and Andy and Verbena. Tim had many special friends in his life but will be especially remembered by his “Ham Sammich,” Wayne and Renee; and his “son,” Mike “Soup” and Beth. Tim is also loved and remembered by his many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews who made his world complete. Tim was predeceased by his father, Walter; his mother-in-law, Anna; and his dear friend, Steve. Tim leaves behind the very caring staff of OceanView Nursing Home, Lubec, and DownEast Hospice.
