Dustin Troy Timberman, 40, of rural Morenci, went to be with our Lord unexpectedly Friday, January 29, 2016, at Toledo Hospital. He was born January 26, 1976, in Hillsdale, to Almarion Timberman and Shelley (Amos) Myers. He married Brittany Wilson on May 4, 2013, at Hudson Wesleyan Church, and she survives.
Dusty graduated from Morenci High School Class of 1994, and was a lifelong area resident. He was currently employed as a cement finisher with Myles Construction in Toledo, OH, and previously worked for Midwest Contracting. He held work ethic in high regard and was a member of the Carpenter’s Union.
Dusty is fondly remembered as a selfless and virtuous man who devoted his life to serving the welfare of others. He founded Courageous Faith, a non-profit organization which donated books and clothing to children in Africa. He was a faithful volunteer with the Toledo Gospel Rescue Mission, where he sponsored and served the less fortunate at several holiday dinners. Dusty was active in the Hudson Wesleyan Church, where he was involved with the youth and lay leadership. He previously served as a leader of the FUMY group in Fayette, OH. Dusty was currently pursuing a degree in Intercultural Studies and Children’s Ministry at Liberty University.
Dusty loved Jesus and his cherished family, and he enjoyed the outdoors. He was a skilled artist and enjoyed woodworking. Dusty was an avid U of M and Detroit Tigers sports fan. Dusty touched the lives of everyone he came in contact with and will be sorely missed by countless family and friends.
Surviving in addition to his wife, Brittany, are his mother and father, Shelley (Dean) Myers of Fayette, OH; a son, Dallas Timberman serving in the Marines in Jacksonville, NC; four daughters, Ashlyn (Noah) Hill of Montpelier, OH, Jadyn Wilson and Madelyn Timberman both at home, and a precious daughter due in May; two sisters, Becky (Mike) Beals of Goodyear, AZ, and Mandy (Mark) Avery of Avondale, AZ; a grandson, Nolan Hill; and six nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Al; his maternal and paternal grandparents; and an unborn baby.
A funeral service for Dusty will be held on Friday, February 5, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. at the Morenci Bible Fellowship (Sims Hwy) with Pastor Wesley Rowan officiating. Burial will follow in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Morenci. The family will receive friends for visitation on Thursday, from 2-8 p.m. at the Eagle Funeral Home in Morenci.
In lieu of flowers, those considering an expression of sympathy may consider memorial donations in honor of Dusty to benefit his children (in c/o Brittany Timberman) or the Toledo Gospel Rescue Misson.
