Timothy Gary Sawyer passed from this world on May 18, 2018. He was the patriarch of a family of artists, writers, and creators. After serving his duty in our nation’s Navy, he retired a Commander and studied at Covenant Theological Seminary where he earned a Masters Degree in Theological Studies. He earned a second Masters Degree in Fine Arts at Lindenwood University where he taught as an Adjunct Professor. His joy came from creating pottery and fixing everything that could be fixed. He was tireless in his love for his family and his passion for Christ. He still had work to do, but he left an army to spread his love. He is survived by his wife and best friend Christy, his sister Sally (Bill), his newfound brother Thomas (Jane), his children and pride Cara (Tim), Andrew (Kate), and Benjamin (Kim), his grandchildren Caleb (Amanda), Nathaniel, Ian, Jordan, Aiden, Isaac, Emmy and his great grandchildren R’Mani and Charlotte. His stubbornness keeps our heads up, his heart beats on in all of us, and his love guides us forward.
