Timothy Steven Williamson
Timothy Steven Williamson of Sammamish, WA died February 4, 2012. He was 21. Tim lived life much like he skied mountains, with intensity, grace and conviction. As a child, he would point his skis downhill, bomb the mountain, and fly into powdery snowdrifts, always emerging with a joyful grin. As he grew older, Tim carved the slopes more purposefully and with undeniable grace. A graduate of Eastlake High School, Tim was a budding philosopher, with a wisdom and brilliance beyond his years. He endlessly questioned conventional principles, seeking truth and purity in his life. Tim had a heart of gold. He reached out to help those in need – once securing medical attention for a complete stranger, a homeless man he found in distress. But he reached far more people with his irresistible smile and charm. Tim was musical, creative and an avid gamer. He played the electric guitar and was especially proud of his Les Paul, one of the many guitars in his collection. He found a creative outlet and focus in blowing glass, and in making intricate things, even building a guitar. Tim is survived by his loving parents, Keith and Sylvia; brother, Eric; sister, Kristin; stepsister Genevieve Moore; stepmother, Renee Valliere; stepfather, Rodney Catiggay; grandmother, Edith Greimel, and grandfather, Eugene Williamson.In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sound Mental Health (smh.org) or Compass Housing Alliance (compasshousingalliance.org).
