Timothy Ray Lavender

Timothy Ray Lavender, age 56, of Albemarle, NC passed away on October 24, 2021 at Atrium Health – Cabarrus. Timothy was born September 2, 1965 in Riverside, Ca to Harold and Betty Wagoner Lavender.

He also leaves behind his best canine friend, Pepper. Timothy worked as a mechanic with Southern Pipe in New London, NC. He attended church at The Gathering in Albemarle. His knowledge of machinery also drove his love of cars. Tim’s other hobbies included fishing, guns, and being a master of the grill. In everything, he was a jokester with a tremendous sense of humor. Tim loved to explore and backroads with his wife every chance he got, just to see where it would go and he could not get over the beauty and all the greenery of North Carolina. Tim’s family will hold a celebration of life ceremony at their home.

May the void that will never be filled, be eased by The Lord's grace & comfort as you learn to live life from here.

It's not often I make friends as quick as I did with Tim. Tim was one of a kind. From the day I hired him I thought a lot of Tim. He was a person when they said good morning he meant it. Tim and I talked about fishing once he bought his boat and places on the local lakes. Tim loved to talk about working on cars and machinery. I pray for GOD's comfort to the family during this time.
