Timothy D. Girton, 64, of Winamac passed away unexpectedly at 2:55 p.m., Monday, April 6, 2020 at Parkview Hospital in Ft. Wayne.
Born on May 2, 1955 in Logansport. He was the son of the late Donald D. and E. Virginia (Earhart) Girton. Tim was raised in Winamac Indiana and graduated with the class of 1973 from Winamac Community High School. On October 25, 1980 he married Debora A. Ingram. He worked at McNabney farms in Medaryville Indiana for the past 32 years. Tim was amazing at his job as a farmer and had a passion for working the ground, being a master mechanic, and raising livestock.
Tim was an avid life-long Chicago Cubs fan and American history buff. He had a keen eye and would often coach others on the hobbies he was passionate about including golf, bowling and fishing. Later in life, he focused on family and his grandchildren to create additional memories for them to treasure. Tim’s children and grandchildren were the light of his life and was a very proud man with all of their accomplishments in life. There was not one single thing Tim wouldn’t do for his family and those who he loved dearly. If you could absorb something from his life it would be this: Be kind. Be honest. Work Hard. Live life to the fullest and spend time with the ones you love.
Survivors include his wife, Debora “Debbie” Girton of Winamac, daughter Christina M. Harper of Plymouth, son Jeffrey A. Girton of Indianapolis, brother Douglas A. Girton (Deidre) of Francesville, sister Debra L. Budd of Winamac and grandchildren, Alexander Timothy Harper and Mallory Rene` Harper both of Plymouth. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother Stephen Girton, and brother-in-law Alfred “Pete” Budd.
Due to current government restrictions on large gatherings, a celebration of Tim’s life will be postponed until a later date.
