Our beloved husband, father, brother, and friend went to be with our Lord in heaven on February 16, 2013 at the age of 57. Born January 25, 1956 in Seattle Washington to Grace Butalla Quinn and Michael Leonard Quinn. Tim enjoyed sports throughout his life playing CYO baseball and basketball and on into high school Varsity baseball, basketball, and golf. His love of golf began early at the age of 11, gathering golf balls in exchange for course time.

Tim entered WSU on a golf scholarship, becoming captain of the team early on. He graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice in 1979 and continued to be an avid Cougar fan throughout his life.

After college Tim went to work on the Tactical Response Team for Hanford Patrol where he earned several awards for his marksmanship. His 33 year career at Hanford allowed him to continue to use his Criminal Justice degree for occurrence reporting, and safety and security for several companies, most recently at Washington Closure Hanford.

In 1985 Tim met the love of his life, Lori Hodges of Richland , and they married on April 1, 1989. Kaitlyn Quinn blessed their family in 1991 and Alex Quinn completed it 2 years later in 1993. Tim was a devoted father and his children’s biggest fan and proudly attended all of their various activities.

Tim loved fishing and golfing with Bill, T, Tony, and numerous other friends. Growing up, he always took care of his little brother and four sisters. Tim was loved for his big and generous heart and could always be counted on to help even giving the shirt off his back.

Other family members include sister “Miki”Kirk Hoy, Shannon Dick Bird, Kathleen Quinn, Patti Doug Quinn-Buska, in-laws Bill and Doris Hodges and Barb and Tarun Hazari, a niece and numerous nephews.

  • I went to St Louise and one year at Seattle Prep with Tim. I think the last time I saw him was probably the summer of 1971. I was just given notice for our 50 year St Louise Reunion in 2020 and asked if anyone new where Tim was. I remember him as a great athlete and a fierce competitor. I’m sad to hear of his passing as I was hoping to see him again. God Bless tim and his family.

  • My condolences to Lori and family.I played softball with Tim for several years and feel very fortunate to have known him. I have always thought of Tim as one of the most level headed, professional gentlemen that I have ever met. He was always a pleasure to be around. Although I hadn’t seen him in many years, he was someone I considered a friend and it’s an honor to have known him.

  • I have known Tim from my work at DOE. I still could not believe that Tim is no longer with us. He was always cheerful and a go getter, when help was sought. May the Almighty provide the comfort to those in grief at this difficult moment. I am pretty sure the Lord received his soul with open arms and providing him a great resting haven.

    Sincerely,

  • My sincere and heartfelt condolences to Tim’s family. Tim was a great guy to work with, but also just a fun guy to be around. I worked with Tim directly or indirectly since 1983. When I first came out of the Patrol Training Academy in 1983, Tim was my “training officer” in the 200 West Area, and showed me the ropes as only Tim could! It was actually a fun place to work back then, and Tim was a big reason why. Later we worked together again in the Occurrence Notification Center as duty officers, and had some good times and lots of laughs. After Tim left the ONC, we always kept in touch, as he continued work in occurrence reporting and emergency preparedness. I only golfed with Tim on one occasion, but what a great memory! Of course, he was about 30 strokes ahead of everyone else, but he always kept it light and fun. I’m proud to have known you Tim. God’s grace and peace on your family during this time of transition.

  • Lori and family,

    So very sorry to hear of the loss of your husband Tim.

    We’ve met you folks numerous times over the years through our dear friends Patti & Doug and one occasion I wanted to share with you that I will never forget was the time my friend and I ran into you two down at Ice Harbor Brewery one evening. Anyway, we ended up sitting and chatting with you folks over a beer and decided to play a friendly game of cribbage on Tim’s favorite board that used to belong to his dad. My friend and I started out at the gate and took an early point lead. Tim was impressed with our game but onward he and Lori played on. Tim was quite the competitor and even though he had to give Lori some tips now & then, those two came back and pegged out on us on the very last hand and won the game. Tim was so proud of Lori & himself for pulling out the win. That’s a game and memory I will never forget. Rest in Peace my friend, you will be missed.

  • Tim and I first started working together during the WPPSS days. During the next 30 + years, we worked off and on together at Hanford. Tim was easily recognized then as a true gentleman with distinctive values, high morals and a true compassion towards others. His sincerity was genuine and his sense of humor was always present. It was well known that the most important part of his life was his family. He spoke frequently of his family. The trip he took with his father some years back to Ireland, the fondness he had for his sisters and their families and above all, his wife Lori, daughter Katitlyn and son Alex.

    Tim, you will be missed and though we know where your”r at, we will always keep a vacant chair open for you so when we hold our “After Work Security Social Hour”, you’ll always have a place to sit.

    My heart goes out to you and your family. May you find some peace during this difficult time. I met Tim at Bechtel Hanford, he was such a nice guy and always stopped to say hello when I saw him. May you and your children remain wrapped in his memory and cherish your times spent together. I am out of town for the service, but offer my prayers for Tim and all of you. Shannon

  • Dear Lori & Family: While I only knew Tim professionally, I felt he was a close friend. We worked through some tough issues together and he always stayed calm, collected, clear headed and professional. He was such a talented man and when he made a commitment you didn’t need it in writing because you could have carved it in granite. I’m really going to miss Tim but I accept what He told us – everything happens according to His plan as He taught us: Thy kingdom come, Thy wiil be done. May Tim rest in peace and may God grant you peace with His will.

  • I was shocked & saddened at the news of Tim’s passing. Throughout our mid-20’s to late 30’s I was honored to be included in Tim’s circle of friends. We worked together, I played on all of his basketball, softball & dart teams. We golfed in “Beer” tournaments together. And I was his leading receiver at the “Charity Bowl” games. All the above were HIS teams as he was a great leader! But even a better friend. With Tony Nau at his side pre Laurie we sports barred together. He even helped me get onto Emergency Preparedness. I have often thought of Tim the past 18 years since I left town…I will continue to think of him and his tremendous affect he had on my life.

  • Tim was my Lt. on “A” Shift/200W for many years. Rotating shift work is tough, but our group always seemed to have fun. Tim made the game of golf look so easy. He’s gone way too soon. RIP.

  • I was searching for my cousin, Brian Quinn’s, memorial info and ran across Tim’s. My name is also Timothy Quinn, I was born on Jan 24, 1965, and I was married Feb 16. Interesting to see so many similarities. I really enjoyed reading what a remarkable man Tim was. Thank you from another Tim Quinn.
