Timothy Wessman

Our loving father, Timothy Wessman, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2018 surrounded by his family.

Tim was Born June 10, 1939 in Ogden Utah to Henry and Barbara Wessman. He graduated from Ben Lomond High School and began working at Hill Air Force Base as an Electrical Engineer. He then changed careers, working as a union elevator engineer and serviceman. He retired from IHC as their Elevator Master Technician.

His greatest enjoyments in life were the years he spent developing his own company, Wessman Enterprises, where he designed and built custom hot rods, and spending time with his boys tinkering and working on cars.

He loved spending time outdoors, taking road trips and long drives in the mountains, camping, hiking, trail rides, building and sailing boats, playing music, karaoke, and having jam sessions with friends and family.

He enjoyed spending time with people and had a real appreciation and interest in what others’ thoughts and dreams were.  He always had confidence in people and had a selfless way of making you feel good about yourself, which is a rare quality to find these days. He had a kind and patient heart, a listening ear, and was always willing to help others in need. His love and friendship will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his children Sheri Sessions-Wessman, Jill (Larry) Sandberg, Tim (Meredith) Wessman, Brett (Kandice) Wessman, and Matthew (Kristine) Robbins, 24 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and his three sisters Barbara East, Pat Anderson, Shirley (Dennis) Powell, and several cherished friends.

Tim’s life will be honored with a private family celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers and condolences his family would be honored if you left fond memories of Tim at aaronsmortuary.com and by “paying forward” a kindness to someone else, in his memory.

We love and miss you Dad and know you will be watching over us from the other side.

This is one amazing kind man. So many great memories from a great friend and lifter of spirits. A friend to all walks of life. You felt like the most important person in the room when he spoke with you. And the best singer in the room :-) I'll never forget all the great times and am better for knowing him. I only wish I could have gotten back in contact as I did think of how he was often. He was a great friend and gave the gift of music. Even made it to some important momments when I live far away. Thank you Tim. You have wings I'm sure.

Sheri, I couldn't help but to feel the love that oozed from your living kindness for your father. I appreciate it so much. May these scripture give you comfort and hope: 1 Co. 15:26 and Isaiah 25:8. Thank you, special daughter.

Yum was a very kind and soft spoken man. I remember him from going to his karaoke nights for several years. My daughter and son in law considered him a great friend as did many others. Prayers to his family and Rest In Peace Tim.

We became good friends with Tim and his family in Riverdale. They opened their door for one of our family to stay with them for a short time. He really was a neat guy. He also had a cool blue van that I wanted to buy from him when I got my drivers license.

Sheri and family, I am so sorry to hear about Tim. What an awesome man ~ with a smile and a laugh and blue eyes that could make anything better! I loved going and listening to him and the band play! Fun times at Eagles and so many memories. Thanks Sheri for sharing your dad with me and for taking me with you to see him not long ago!

I want to thank everyone for the sweet condolences, loving thoughts, and prayers. It warms my heart to know so many of you are kind enough to take a moment out of your day to think of me and my family. It's been a rough week for sure. My father has been going downhill for a while now and I think all of my family secretly wished he could move on, for his own sake, because he had no quality of life left. But when it actually happens....... OMG! I can't believe how sad it is to wake up and realize how different our world is now without my sweet father in it. He passed AWAY on Tuesday with all of us by his side, and it was the most difficult good-bye I can imagine. He was one of those rare souls who actually LISTENED to people and their dreams, without having to compete with them for his own validation. He was someone who always had confidence in people and had a way of making you feel good about yourself, which is a rare thing these days when so many people are assholes (excuse the french) to each other. He loved music and he and my mother had a country-western band for about fifteen years. He used to spend hours and hours listening to me play the piano, or my bother play guitar. He had a real appreciation and interest for people and their dreams. He built fiberglass kit cars of old roasters and muscle cars, just for fun, and he loved building and sailing boats. As soon as the weather permits, we will be taking his ashes out to his favorite lake, with his sailboat, and giving him a viking sendoff, which is what he would love. I wish you could all know someone like him in your lifetime, as he was the best thing that could ever happen to your self-esteem. He was selfless that way. He truly loved people and I know this world will be a little less happy without his special soul. Heaven, however... is better for having gained one. Hakuna Matata Daddy! I love and miss you!
