Tim Morath, 63 years old, resident of Indian Mound, Tennessee, formerly longtime resident of West Chester, Ohio, unexpectedly passed away on December 7, 2023. He was born on June 30, 1960, in Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Late Lawrence "Bud" and the late Maxine (Nee Jones) Morath.

 

Tim was a 1979 Lakota High School graduate and proudly served our country as a United States Marine Veteran. For several decades, he served loyally as a valued employee at Goodyear Tire Manufacturer, where his expertise and dedication were greatly appreciated. He also served for many years as a Union Township Fireman, as well as worked on the Morath Family farm. After he retired from Goodyear, he then worked for many years as an independent contractor for many firms around the Cincinnati area. Tim will be fondly remembered for his strong work ethic and his vibrant personality. He never knew a stranger. His legacy will live on through the memories.
