Timothy Michael Card Jr. of Goshen, N.Y., a forklift operator for Mid-State Lumber in Warwick, entered into rest on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2019, at home. He was 34.

The son of Lillian L. Jaycox Card and Timothy M. Card Sr., he was born on July 21, 1984, in Goshen.

He is survived by his mother, Lillian L. Card; sister Miranda Card; aunts, uncles and many cousins.

Timmy was the most loving, nonjudgmental, supportive and kind person we have ever known. He was all about family. He loved all with no conditions. Everyone who knew him was blessed to have him in their lives. Timmy enjoyed being around family and friends. He was “Mr. Fix It,” and always there with a helping hand (and duct tape).

He had a very unique soft sense of humor and enjoyed making people laugh. Timmy’s smile always brightened the room.

“Now what we gonna do about that?”

Visitation was scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 31, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at T.S. Purta Funeral Home, 22 Glenmere Avenue, Florida, N.Y. A gathering was planned for shortly after the 2-4 service at 80 South Main Street, Florida, N.Y., at Robert and Tina Giza’s home.

At the end of the 7-9 p.m. visitation a service will begin 8:30 p.m. at the funeral home.

Cremation will be held privately following the services.

Burial will be privately held on a later date at the Hillside Cemetery, Middletown, N.Y.
