It is with a broken heart and wounded spirit that the family of Tim Alan Wollaston announces the loss of our beloved Soulmate, Husband, Father, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, Co-Worker, Mentor and Relative. Tim suffered from acute Meningitis and a severe stroke which regretfully ended his life with us here on Earth. Tim's journey home to Heaven began on April 25th in Aurora, Colorado, where he was held closely in the arms of his wife Tammy, who was awoken by his silence. He found his own way, after a noble fight, to take his final ride where there is no more pain and only peace. He will never leave our hearts or our memories, as this was sudden, unexpected and so difficult to understand. Tim was only 60 years of age and will remain forever young in our lives. Tim is survived by his loving wife and companion of almost 22 years. Tammy Lynn Wollaston Stearns. It was the love of nature and music that brought them together. They were reunited in marriage in Kremmling, Colorado September 1st , 2016 on the 21st anniversary of their first date. They met in Colorado Springs May 29, 1995 because of a huge flash flood and thunderstorms in Manitou Springs. Tammy always told him, "I have loved you for my whole life, it just took me awhile to find you."

Tim Alan Wollaston was born April 12, 1957 in Battle Creek, Michigan to parents Harold Eugene and Elsie Vaegeli Wollaston who are deceased. He was the baby of the 5 children which makes it harder to say goodbye. Jack (Linda) Wollaston, Bellevue, MI, Jill (Richard) Nading, Spring Arbor, MI, Dave (Pat) Wollaston, Chattanooga, TN, and, Anne (Jerry) Dickinson Marble Falls, TX, Their children and grandchildren hold special places in our lives, no matter the distance, love to Roxy, Scott, Diamonds, Daelynn, Jack Jr, Verna, Madi, Emma, Dakota, Holli, Terry, Sophia, Alana, April and Chad. Nephew, Dave Jr. wife Lori (English)Wollaston of Woodland Park, Colorado, camping, motorcycle trail riding buddies, great friends, and nephew Chad Wollaston, Woodland Park, CO and Great nieces Nichole and Kylie Wollaston. The Wollastons always had a love for speed, but no one would imagine that Tim would be the first to cross the finish line in this race. His legacy, are our treasures. His daughter, Monica Ann Wollaston Brasuell, Allen, TX and beautiful granddaughters Leah Anne and Bella Lynn, his Son, Timothy Wesley Wollaston, their mother Kim Shomette also lives in Texas. Monica and Wesley drove to South Dakota to see their father and meet with their sister Heather and were able to spend a short-time with him before his condition worsened. They actually shared a few words and laughs together. Stories to tell their own grandchildren.

Our blended family who loved him dearly include step-daughter Heather Michelle Cox (Greg) Bodeker, Granddaughter Addison Marie Bodeker, Robins IA, who called him "Papa Boots", Bailey, Connor and Cian Bodeker, Grandchildren, , Step-daughter Katherine R. Cox (David) Jastremski, and Grandson Kaiden Joshua, Colorado Springs, Step-son William "Billy" James Cox V, Colorado Springs, niece Belinda Gayle Cox, Littleton, CO, Family friend, Judie F. Cox, Cantonment, FL and many of their extended families and friends throughout Colorado, Texas, Michigan, and South Dakota. Our favorite little dog Lilly Jo Wollaston, and Michelle O'Connor (Bo) Stinson will also miss Tim dearly. The widespread families of the late Raymond Edward and Alice Marie (Jenkins) Stearns Mitchell, IN, including sisters-in-law Terri Stearns and Tracy Atkinson, Nephews and Nieces, James Hsu, CA Jason Martin, Jennifer (Rob) Robinson, Curtis Scott, great nephew Andrew Hsu, great-niece, Courtney Hsu, Bedford, Aunts and Uncles of Southern Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee will all share in our sadness.

Tim and Tammy began their journey in Colorado and by way of Horseshoe Bay, Texas 2002 to Iron Mountain Road in South Dakota, landed in Pringle, SD, October 4, 2004. Tim and Tammy loved sharing their lives and hobbies in South Dakota including motorcycle trail riding, camping, fishing, snowmobiling, Bluegrass music, concerts, trips to Deadwood, enjoying the Native American culture and history of the ranchers and cowboys surrounding. He loved the lakes and warm weather and had planned to get a boat this summer. He was also a big Denver Bronco fan for life, even in the face of diversity, and the Dallas Cowboys was his second favorite team. He loved country music and was an excellent dancer, which sometimes made his star shine a little brighter. He has a whole other collection of lifetime friends in Texas, prior to Colorado. Tim spent the first 14 years of his life in Michigan until his family moved to the Dallas area of Texas where he attended Mesquite schools. He also worked in the grocery business, and then later in Real Estate working with the family business. Along with his business partner to Tammy who continued to play Cowboys and Indians the rest of his life. Tim was employed by the City of Custer City, South Dakota as the Parks Supervisor for the past 10 years. His kinship and comradery with his coworkers in our small Black Hills community proved to be much bigger than he had thought. Their loss is also acknowledged while he is now at his final resting place. Tammy worked at a historic school in Oelrichs, South Dakota. Her garden was once the talk of the town. Through her own recognition of her native American ancestry, they shared the love of the land and the magic of the Black Hills including the art and writing, and history recording of the Oglala Lakota Sioux, and had not decided to leave the area at the time of his death. 

Tim and Tammy Wollaston were catching rainbow trout at Cold Brook Lake in Hot Springs, the day before he went to the hospital. His life was cut short, much too soon for our comfort, but knowing that he had gone full circle, ending up where he and his family once thrived. This will serve as a constant reminder that we must live life to the fullest no matter which path we take. We can choose the Red Road, straight or hilly, or paved in gold. Tim chose the road not yet taken. Rest In Peace upon your mountain. Jesus take you home. Tim you are my heart, the Love of my Life Eternally; my hardest goodbye. I never wanted you to be cold so I surround you with all the warm love that we have shared. Your last words to me were, "no thank you" and you will always be my favorite cowboy and my  southern gentleman. Tammy

Tammy, I was sorry to hear of Tim's passing. I am glad that I was able to come to the hospital to spend the day with you and Katie catching up after many years apart. Funny how we don't change over the years. You are still the girl I went to grade school with in so many ways. Losing your love so soon is difficult but I am confident that you will always cherish all of the memories that the two of you made over the years.

Dear Tammy, please know that we are all lifting you up in thoughts and prayer during this difficult time. Tim (aka Hollywood) has left quite the void here at City Hall. His quick wit, football bets and never ending sarcasm will be greatly missed. We are very grateful for our time with Tim and are here for you should you need anything at all. May God bless you and keep you until we meet again Hollywood!

To the Family of Tim Alan Wollaston, May you find comfort just as I have, in the God of all comfort, Jehovah, in his word, the bible, in Psalms 34:18: Jehovah is close to the broken-hearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. God's word, also says in Isaiah 35:8: He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces....For Jehovah himself has spoken it. (Psalms 83:18; Titus 1:2) Isaiah 33:24; Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29; John 11:25,26; Revelation 21:3-5. I have come to know, and have faith, that this is what God's Kingdom, under Jesus Christ rulership, will accomplish in the near future for all those who love righteousness. The true God, promises in his word, in Psalms 37:11,29: .The meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace, 29: The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it. Psalms 104:5; Psalms 115:16; Ecclesiastes 1:4; Job 33:25; Isaiah 35:5,6; Isaiah 65:21,22; Psalms 37:34. (New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures)45
