Timothy D. Girton, 64, Winamac, passed away unexpectedly at 2:55 p.m. Monday, April 6, 2020, at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne.
He was born on May 2, 1955, in Logansport. He was the son of the late Donald D. and E. Virginia (Earhart) Girton. He was raised in Winamac and graduated with the class of 1973 from Winamac Community High School. On Oct. 25, 1980, he married Debora A. Ingram. He worked at McNabney Farms in Medaryville for the past 32 years. He was amazing at his job as a farmer and had a passion for working the ground, being a master mechanic, and raising livestock.
He 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. His 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 he 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, Winamac; a daughter: Christina M. Harper, Plymouth; a son: Jeffrey A. Girton, Indianapolis; a brother: Douglas A. Girton (Deidre), Francesville; a sister: Debra L. Budd, 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 a 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.
