Timothy Raymond Kredlo, age 69, quietly passed away at his home in Raymond, Washington on March 21st with his wife Amy and sister Denise at his side. Born February 3, 1951 in East Chicago, Indiana, he was the oldest of seven children. He was known throughout our small community as an avid gardener. Tim loved eating green bananas, falling asleep at the wheel while driving, and being right. He was an avid reader, a humanitarian, and a man who believed in action over words. He always had a great smile and positive outlook. Somewhat of a "Pollyanna" at times, he never turned down a challenge. Tim was always happiest while doing projects, woodworking and working in the garden. He never missed an opportunity to help others when he could. He had no regrets (and said so often), about retiring in 2006, when he was in his mid-50's. He and Amy, the love of his life, downsized, moved to Raymond and started a new and more relaxed lifestyle. He was so content and fulfilled in his remaining 14 years. Tim leaves behind his wife Amy, son Jeremy, brother Mark, sisters Denise, MaryBeth and Margaret, and several granddaughters, great granddaughters, nephews and nieces. He will be missed.
