Timothy A. Sidelinger, 65, of Kersey, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, May 7, 2023, at Penn Highlands Elk, surrounded by his family.
He was born November 18, 1957, in Ridgway, son of the late Wallace C. and Rosemond M. Secco Sidelinger. Tim was a lifelong resident of the area and was a graduate of St. Marys Area High School, Class of 1975. He was employed at Keystone Powdered Metal company for 42 years as a Class A machinist and tool and die maker before retiring on December 1, 2019.
On July 16, 1983, in St. Boniface Church, Tim married Jamie Sheeley who survives. They would have celebrated 40 years of marriage together this year.
In addition to his loving wife, Tim is survived by his daughter, Stephanie Weinzierl and her husband Nathan of St. Marys; his two grandchildren, who were his biggest joy, Westin and Ethan; one sister; three brothers; numerous nieces and nephews; a brother-in-law, Timothy Sheeley; sisters-in-law: Patricia Walker (David), Lisa Feidler, Amy Gorton (Robert); and nephews, Evan and Alex Gorton.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, a brother in infancy, and his mother and father-in-law, Shirley and James Sheeley.
Tim enjoyed spending time with his grandsons whenever he had the chance. “Papa” was his best title. Over the years he enjoyed gardening and it seemed the garden got bigger each year. He had a love for growing blueberries and fruit trees. It was a frequent occurrence to see him driving his John Deere tractor around the yard. He cherished his time with his family and his dog, Chloe. He will be greatly missed.
