Our beloved Tim, Timothy Michael, Timmy, passed away on Sunday, December 25, 2022. It is with the deepest sorrows that we are sharing this news. Timmy was born in Enumclaw WA, at the old hospital, on April 7th, 1993. He was the second born child of Michael and Eileen. His older sister Danielle took him to “show and tell” at her preschool. Two years later brother Ryan was born, and with that Timmy was given the gift of a best friend for life. Timmy grew up in Buckley, WA and was an athlete from his first step. Timmy was an avid fan of all sports throughout this lifetime. He grew up playing Chinook Little League, where he made lifelong friendships on both sides of the river. He went to school in the White River School District, graduating from WRHS in 2011. He managed to maintain some of the same friendships from kindergarten through his entire life. Timmy was the 2nd age rung in a huge clan of cousins on both sides of his family, and was always an instigator of a backyard game of catch or wiffle ball. He pitched and played shortstop, and even played a bit of college ball, alongside Ryan, at Grays Harbor CC. In his later years Tim continued in his love of the game by following after both of his grandfathers playing on local rec league softball teams. Timmy could often be found at Enumclaw Golf Course with his friends throughout his twenties, and in his later years became a bit of a master bowler. He looked forward to his weekly team and boys nights type events. He was always competitive, whether in pickle ball, ping pong, or just controlling the tv remote. Throughout his entire life he was quickwitted and readily served up sarcastic commentating, mumbles disagreeing with umpires, and epic photobombs before photobombing was even “a thing”. Timmy was the constant teammate to all. He was the textbook Uncle, the smartass brother, a total middle child, and loyal as could be to “his” people. He was one of a kind and explored life outside of our little hometown. We are all heartbroken that he left us at such a young age, but he lived his life how he wanted. He is missed severely and will be forever. He is survived by his mother Eileen (Andrew) Johnson, father Michael (Robbi) Kolisch, grandmother Sherri Kolisch, grandparents Darrell & Kathy Stanley, Mike & Marilee Welch, Ron Johnson & Sunny Wickman, sister Danielle (TJ) Markley, brother Ryan (Delaney) Kolisch, sisters Abigail and Alexis, stepbrothers Hale and Ashe, nephews Levi, Amos and Brooks, and many many more relatives and friends. Memorials may be made to the Buckley Fire Department.
