Timothy Tyree Obituary

In regards and respect of Timothy Tyree:

This is a message going out to all those whom we call family, whether related or not.  It is not intended to make you sad, but rather to bring a smile, as we remember a life well-lived.

On January 14, 2024, Tim Tyree roared past the checkered flag and made his final lap, leaving this world behind to reunite with his loved ones.  He now joins his parents, Bon and Jo Tyree, his older siblings Bonnie Watson, Fred (Red) Tyree, and Patricia Gibney; his beloved wife Helen, and their sons Alan (Tub) Tyree and Tim (Timmy) Tyree, Jr.; his grandson Nick, and granddaughter Amanda Marie.

Tim is survived by his younger siblings Betty Tyree, Bob Tyree, Deb Bisaha and Freida Bausmith; his sons Daniel (Pete) Tyree, James (Jim) Tyree and Barbara Tyree Henderson; thirteen grandchildren and numerous great and great-great grandchildren. He will be remembered by many for his big heart, his willingness to help-whether he knew you or not-, and his infectious laugh. 

Tim was a long-time resident of Bly, Oregon, where he and Helen raised their family, and he worked for the Forest Service.  Through the years, he became an invaluable employee, rising rapidly through the ranks, devising a computer firefighting system which, after retiring, he travelled the us teaching to other firefighters.

After retirement, he moved to Bonanza, Oregon, where he began a business buying and selling antique glass.  Throughout his life he was an avid outdoorsman who love hunting, fishing, and camping.  But above all else, he loved race cars--both building them and driving them.  He was very successful at both.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 27 at 1:00 pm at Bonanza Memorial Park, Bonanza, Oregon.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Timothy Paul Tyree?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor Timothy's memory.
