Peter Michael Timony, 72, passed away at his home on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Peter was born and raised in Ridley Township, PA, and graduated from Ridley High School before moving to Upper Chichester, PA. He retired after many years of working as a computer programmer. Anyone who knew Peter understood that there were no strangers, only friends he had not made yet. He was a long-time member of St. John Fisher Church in Boothwyn, PA.
Peter was known to be quick to serve those in need and enjoyed sharing his vast knowledge of cars, engineering, and building to help those around him. He was always the first person to call when you had a question. He was not simply a jack-of-all-trades but a master of them as well. Whenever he encountered a problem, his goal was not to solve it but to also improve it. Peter loved spending time with his family especially playing with his grandchildren. The life of the party, Peter was known for his quick wit and disarming sense of humor. Throughout his health challenges he even developed a reputation with his care team for his warmth and candor that made him so memorable to all of us.
He was the son of the late Peter A. and Amelia J. Timony (nee Ferko).

Barbara, David and Cheryl, I’m so sorry for the sudden loss of Peter. Oh, the wonderful memories I will always have of him! Cousin “Petsey” ! How we loved visits to Crym Lynn, playing under the piano, all our family and his in a 1 room apartment, having a blast. Only special members of our “gang” will remember one of our favorite game...Activity! And I remember that fateful visit to our house in Freeland, when he whispered the word “ Barbara”...... I knew he found “the one”. Petsey, you will be missed by all who knew and loved you!

Barbara and family - you have my deepest sympathy for your loss. I am praying for all of you. Please let me know if I can do anything for you. Let the good memories, the laughter, and each others love get you through this difficult time.

My deepest sympathies to all of the Timony family. I met Peter through the Cancer Support Community and looked forward to seeing him every week. His humor, his knowledge and his stories kept all of us on the edge of our seats. To say that we will miss him is a gross understatement. I hope you can all find some comfort knowing that he’s at peace, building something or just relaxing watching Gunsmoke! We love you Peter. You will be a part of our CSC family forever.

Pete was my brother in law and good friend for my entire life, and my parents loved him like a son. Pete was always there when a problem arose and he kept me, (and many others) laughing with his great sense of humor. I learned so much from Pete about working on cars, but one of his greatest lessons to me was patience. What I acquired from Pete will stay with me forever, and I'll always remember to laugh every now and then. Rest easy brother, and thanks for all the fantastic memories. PEACE
