Timothy M. Friesner, 48, died at his residence in Mt. Olive on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.
Tim was a baptized and confirmed member of Zion Lutheran Church in Mt. Olive. He graduated from Mt. Olive High School with the class of 1992. Tim had a landscaping green thumb, and many "dead" plants, given no hope by others, were revived by his treatments. He enjoyed playing and listening to music and played percussion instruments in grade school and high school and later in local bands. Pets, particularly dogs, were among his favorite subjects. He liked training them to be obedient. He also enjoyed cooking meals for family and friends.
Tim is survived by his children, Miah, Keylee, Katie, Jamie, Finn; grandchild, Waylon; his parents, Walter and Iris (DeVries) Friesner; a sister, Joann (Ron) Pomatto of Gillespie; a brother, Jeffrey (Ginger) Friesner of Highland; a half sister, Debbie (Richard) Grove of Gillespie; aunts and an uncle; and numerous friends, cousins, nieces and nephews. Tim was preceded in death by his companion, Nikki Johnson.
A private memorial service will be held on Sunday, May 29, at 2 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church in Mt. Olive. Burial will follow at the Mt. Olive City Cemetery.
