Timothy Gene Hennigar
Timothy Gene Hennigar (May 14, 1945 – July 22, 2021) - Born in Berwick, the third son of the late Dean and Jean Hennigar, Tim grew up in Sheffield Mills. He married his high school sweetheart and best friend, Irene Eaton of Centreville in 1965. They raised three sons, Andrew (Kerry) of Sweets Corner; Peter (Tracy, deceased) of Hantsport and Colin of Halifax. Tim leaves behind seven grandchildren: Ashley, Abigail, Krista, Felicia, Chelsea, Aidan, Keira and great-granddaughter, Alice. Tim and Irene raised their family while living in Halifax, Waterville and Upper Granville.
Tim attended the Provincial Institute of Automotive and Allied Trades in Toronto which began his multi-faceted career in agricultural equipment especially of the green and yellow variety. As an Annapolis County apple grower and varied entrepreneur, Tim also served on the executive and boards of several community and agricultural associations as an active participant. He was especially supportive of the Living Word Fellowship Church and the Annapolis County Exhibition and Farm Museum.
Whether it was clearing snow for a neighbour, blazing a trail for fellow ATV- ers, giving rides on his antique tractors and car or singing in the church choir, Tim found joy in helping and encouraging others. His quick wit and warm sense of humour was expressed in a kind and caring manner. He loved to tease his grandchildren at their frequent family gatherings and got very competitive during card game nights.
Tim passed away at home after a courageous battle with
cancer. His faith in the Lord Jesus sustained and comforted him
through his most recent illness, and for many years prior when he had
to deal with several other cancers.
Family and friends mourn the loss of a wonderful husband, brother, father and loyal friend. Tim is survived by his brothers, David (Carolyn), Laurie (Joan), Richard (Debbie) and sister, Susan (Joe Ueffing); brother in-law, Alan Eaton (Sharon) and sister in-law, Elaine Eaton (Dennis Stosky). He was predeceased by brother-in–law, Eric Eaton.
