Timothy Eller, 73, passed away on September 3, 2020 quietly with his best friend and life partner, Katy Clemons Hastings, by his side. Preceding him in death are his parents, James A. and Teresa Mae (Beck) Eller, and brothers, Joseph Eller and Anthony “Tony” Eller.
Left to cherish his memory are his life partner, Katy Clemons Hastings; brother, Andrew Eller; sisters, Patricia Eller, and Rose King of NY; and many nieces, nephews, and grand-nieces-and-nephews.
Timothy’s parents moved here in 1943 due to his father’s Navy career and Timothy grew up in their house in Glenwood Park, a small five-street neighborhood off of Hampton Blvd. Glenwood Park felt like its own little town, surrounded by nothing but wooded, military-owned property that was undeveloped at the time. It was a wonderful place to live and he made many lifelong friends there whom he cared for very much.
Timothy attended Norfolk Catholic Schools and Granby High School and finished his education by obtaining his GED. He loved driving and started working for Yellow Cabs in his late teens. He continued to drive his whole life, from dump trucks, to heavy equipment, to long haul trucks. He loved seeing all the land out west that he had read so much about when he was younger.
Timothy and Katy had once been married in the 70s, and got back together after he returned from living in Florida, for a total of 31 years together.
Katy would like to give special thanks to Michael Pahno and Alison for all their help and support in the early 80s.
Because of the COVID problem, there will be much more written about him, Katy, and all his friends on the Glenwood Park sites. The web address for this will be listed at a later date, please check back for it.
