Obituary for Timothy Sanford Dewar

Kinston-Timothy Sanford “Tim” Dewar, 61, of Kinston, passed away Tuesday, February 13, 2018. Tim was born October 30, 1956 in Lenoir County to the late Robert Lindsey Dewar and Janice Sanford Dewar. One who loved the open road, Tim worked many years as a truck driver and retired from Moen in 2006.

Described as borderline peculiar, Tim liked things his way. In younger years, Tim went through a Harley-Davidson phase and most recently had been fascinated with Hatteras Boats and all things related to drag racing. Tim enjoyed listening to his scanner to keep up with the latest happenings within the police and fire departments. Nothing was better to Tim than watching his beloved UNC Tarheels or the latest episode of “Live PD”.

Tim has always been interested in anything that ran with a motor. Several years ago he was able to purchase his dream vehicle, a 2009 Black Chevy Tahoe. Tim was always looking for the latest gadget or accessary to trick out his ride. He always beamed with pride when around his Tahoe.

Most important to Tim was his family and their well being. Taking care of his family had been a motivation for keeping Tim going. His daughter Stephanie’s marriage last year brought much joy and happiness to Tim. He beamed with great pride and joy on her special day. Tim had made peace with his health challenges some time ago and through great faith had accepted what the future held in store for him. Wanting to give back to his fellow man and be a blessing to others, Tim used his willingness to be an organ donor to help others live through him.

A memorial service to celebrate Tim’s life will be held Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 11 a.m. from Rouse Funeral Home.

Tim is survived by his wife of seventeen years, Nicole Jacobs Dewar; daughter, Stephanie Wade and her husband, Aaron; brother, Robert Lynn Dewar and his wife, Peggy; Tim’s mother-in-law whom he referred to as “Mom”, Barbara Jacobs; and his beloved feline companion, Heidi. In addition to his parents, a brother, Phillip Michael Dewar, preceded Tim in death.
