On July 27, 2019, at age 65, we lost a beloved son, brother, uncle, husband, father, grandfather. Tim was born to John William (deceased) and Shirley Elizabeth McNierney on August 15, 1953, in Laramie. As a child, he attended St. Laurence School and graduated from Laramie High School in 1971. After graduation, he attended the University of Wyoming where he received his degree in Psychology with a Masters in Reading. On September 23, 1994, Tim married the love of his life, Odella Boyles. He became a cherished father/friend to Lisa and Matthew Boyles, and later a grandfather to Ruby and Louden.
Tim had a rewarding and lengthy career in Casper as a probation officer, retiring as a supervisor from the Wyoming Department of Corrections at the age of 55. During Tim’s retirement, he never wasted a day. He and Odella shared a passion for reading, gardening, mountain hikes on Sundays - and especially playing with their grandchildren Ruby and Louden. He was an avid outdoorsman, sharing his time with family and friends fishing, hunting, golfing, biking, hiking, snowboarding and skiing. He had a quirky sense of humor, mostly laughing at himself. Tim enjoyed teaching and sharing his knowledge - and occasionally challenging our views - on a wide array of subjects. He will be deeply missed.
Tim is survived by his mother, Shirley; wife, Odella and children, Lisa (Todd) Jamieson and their daughter Ruby; son Matthew (Heather) Boyles and their son Louden; siblings, Mark, Dan (Susie), Coleen (Mark Holder); nieces and nephews, Savannah (Matthew); Ash (Afton); Britta (Keith); Joe (Sara).
A Celebration of Life in Casper will be held Tuesday, August 6th at 10:00 a.m. at Newcomer Funeral Home, and a Memorial Mass in Laramie, Saturday, August 10th, 11:00 a.m. at St. Laurence O’Toole Catholic Church, officiated by Father Jerry Rodensel.
