Obituary For Tim McCuaig
Tim McCuaig of Kent City, MI, age 46, died on Tuesday, September 7th, 2021.
Tim was a Sparta High School graduate, raised in Croton and Sparta, and met the love of his life and they settled in Kent City to raise a family. He worked for different electrical contractors in the area, Kent Power, Hydaker-Wheatlake and then most recently with New Kirk Electric where he had worked for the last decade. He was a proud member of the IBEW, 876, with his union brothers.
Tim taught his boys everything he knew and loved, from boating on Croton, hunting in Paw Paw and his love of off-roading. He loved storm watching, he was a connoisseur of all things meat, he loved hot shots from Franks and pizza from Angela’s in Sparta. He loved a good inappropriate joke and was able to make people laugh with his humor. He had the ability to know exactly what to say to people when they needed a kind word and a big bear hug.
There was no one who was a stranger to Tim and he made friends where ever he went. If he called you on the phone, he loved you. If he stopped over unannounced to your home (against his wife’s wishes) he loved you. If he met you once, he remembered you forever.
He is survived by beloved wife, Sara L. McCuaig of 19 years, his son’s Ryan (age 17) and Travis (age 14). Brother Chad McCuaig, Father Michael McCuaig, aunts and cousins.
He is preceded in death by his Mother, JoAnn Gilleo, infant brother and both sets of Grandparents.
There will be private burial and then a celebration of life to follow for all who knew him. Information will be provided on social media when all plans are finalized.
