Notes

Timothy Garrison McNally, 30, died April 15, 2019 when he was hit by a truck while working on a jobsite. He was born December 29, 1988 in Morristown, NJ. He attended Burr and Burton Academy for high school in Manchester Center, VT, where he played on the varsity lacrosse team. He went on to graduate from the University of Montana in 2012, where he majored in Geology and minored in Climate Change. He had recently moved to Raleigh-Durham, NC, where he was working as a geologist. Timothy is survived by his parents, Howard and Nancy; his brothers, Tyler, Jonathan, and Michael(sister-in-law, Elisabeth and his niece, Olive); his beloved dogs, Nellie and Dexter, as well as many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. Tim was a kind and gentle soul who loved the outdoors, live music and his dogs. He had a deep scientific understanding of the natural world and its processes. His face would light up discussing geology, the Disco Biscuits, and woodworking. He felt most at home in the mountains, on the golf course, or knee deep in a river fly fishing. He took pride in helping others understand his work and the sciences he spent so many years studying. Tim's lightness and warmth was felt by everyone who knew him.
