Tim Ham 3

Timothy Wyndall Ham, 64, passed from this world on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.  Tim was born to Grover and Bobbie Ham on August 14, 1953. Tim was born and raised in Lovelady, Texas and lived most of his adult life there. He graduated from Lovelady High School in 1972 where he played football, baseball and played in the band. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, field archery competition and playing in local softball leagues in his early adult years and became an avid golfer later in his life. Not only was he a devoted lifetime Houston Astros fan, he made many adventurous motorcycle trips throughout the United States, attended and competed in numerous classic car shows and was a member of the Davy Crockett Classic Cruisers.

After attending Sam Houston State University, he went to work for Texas Instruments in Houston. In 1975, Tim graduated from the Houston Fire Academy and served as a firefighter for the city of Houston until he retired as a Captain in 2004. He worked at several fire stations throughout Houston, but served as Captain for 11 ½ years at Station 30 where he was respected and loved by his crew and fellow firefighters.

Tim served as Fire Chief for the Lovelady Volunteer Fire Department from 1987 to 2008. During his years as Chief, he worked alongside other fire fighters to improve many aspects of the department. Tim was instrumental in helping establish the First Responders and lobbying for the passage of the ESD. He knew the importance of a good fire department and First Responders Service for his community and worked for 22 years toward those goals.

Tim was blessed with two sons. His oldest, Brad Michael, died in 1991 at the age of 17. Tim’s youngest son, Luke Alan, is presently serving as a Master Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and based in San Diego, California. Luke and his wife, April, gave Tim three beautiful grandchildren-Kellan, Sarah and Sullivan.

Tim and his wife, Mary Ann, had unforgettable RV and motorcycle adventures during their years together. Tim will be greatly missed not only by his family, but by a host of faithful friends whom he loved dearly.

  9. From the day sweet Timothy was born there was always a connection as not only was he born on August 14th in the morning my son, Steve, was born that same day in the afternoon and being cousins we shared those days together during our early year. The last real encounter I had with Tim was at the Weldon’s Buyers Benefit last year when I bought a pecan pie and Tim in his teasing manner, stuck his thumb deep into my pie. I will miss that twinkling eye full of mischievousness. I loved him dearly as I do all the family. I pray for peace and comfort and nothing but happy memories for all the family and friends.
