Timothy O'Connor

On March 29, 2017 the world lost an amazing son, generous brother, wonderful husband, and loving father. Timothy O'Connor left this world as a fighter, never giving up on his family in his battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Debora, his daughter Christina, his mother Elizabeth, his father John, his brothers Chris, John, Kevin, and Mike. His impact on the community is indescribable, always putting the needs and want of others in front of his own. Although he is no longer with us, he now gets to spend his time with his brother Daniel looking over his family. He will be watching over his daughter on her upcoming graduation day, he will be watching over his parents during every family get together, he will be watching over his brothers during every holiday party, and he will be watching over his Wife with every step she takes. Although his life was cut much too short, his life lives on in the hearts of his family and friends. His wake will be held in The Butterfield Chapel 500 Pontiac Avenue Cranston on Monday from 4:00-7:00pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday at 11:00am in St. Mary's Church Cranston. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, you generously donate to the Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Blood Disorders Center.

Tim, you were the best neighbor, an all around good guy and a friend to all. You will be deeply missed. We are so very sorry Deb and Christina. We send our love and condolences.

Anne and Greg Clesas - 03/31/2017

Deb and Christina we are so incredibly sorry. I was thinking back when we were all in high school carefree with worries that seem so petty now. Timmy was always a good guy. He was kind and always thinking of others. Of course his family was most important and he left great memories for you and Christina. And be assured that he will be with you and Christina every step of the way. God bless.
