Obituary of Timothy M. Wall

Timothy Martin Wall of Rye, NY, passed away peacefully on Saturday July 2, 2016, surrounded by the love of family and friends at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx, after a three and a half year battle with cancer. Tim was a fourth generation Rye resident and a 1979 graduate of Rye High School, where he played varsity football. Tim went on to receive his B.S. from Mt. Saint Mary's College in Emmitsburg, MD, and lived and worked in North Palm Beach, Florida before resettling in Rye in 1988. Tim spent more than 25 years in real estate management throughout Westchester County, in both residential and commercial facilities. He married the love of his life Elizabeth (King) of Spring Lake, New Jersey, whom he met at his college roommate's wedding. Tim was active in the Rye community, coaching softball and Little League. He was a life long Green Bay Packers fan and loved the New York Yankees and New York Football Giants (when the Packers were not playing). His family and friends extend their deep appreciation to his doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center led by Dr. Miguel-Angel Perales and nurse practicioner Megan Heavey. With the assistance of their care, Tim saw his eldest son graduate from Loyola University Maryland and move to Boston to begin his career with Pepsi; saw his second son play varsity football at Rye High School and college rugby at Villanova University. He was able to attend his daughter's high school sporting events, teach her to drive and visit prospective colleges with her. While Tim was constantly challenged by his illness he pushed through pain and other limitations associated with his treatment, remained hopeful, and served as an inspiration to all who encountered him. Tim loved the Florida Keys and the Jersey Shore and found great joy on any beach vacation. He was an avid reader of non-fiction and loved anything related to United States History, especially the Civil War. He enjoyed golfing and played in the Annual Cardinal's Open at Winged Foot Golf Club benfiting Catholic Charities. While Tim is finally at peace, he leaves behind his extended family and friends who are heartbroken by the loss of this amazing man. Tim is predeceased by his parents James and Irene Wall. He is survived by his loving wife Elizabeth; his children Brendan (Quincy, MA); Patrick and Cecilia (Rye); his siblings Mary Strain (Robert), James Wall (Anne); Catherine Pierce (John) and Margaret O'Dell (Marc); a large extended family from the Jersey Shore; more than 40 nieces and nephews; and his Rye cousins the Martins, the Grahams, and O'Keefes.
