Tim M. Wyatt, 81, of Konnarock, Va., traveled on to be with his Heavenly Father on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon, Va. He was of the Lutheran Faith. He was born August 28, 1937, in Konnarock, moved to Norton at age 7 and later attended John I. Burton High School. While in Norton, he met the Love of his Life, Geraldine Huffman, and they married on April 19, 1958. He also found his love of bluegrass music and performed with various bands in the region, including The Rolling Firestones, Messa Grass, The Sanders Brothers and Virginia Sweethearts, among many other greats throughout the years. He was a retired Master Electrician and Plumber and returned to Konnarock in 1989, which he loved. Tim was an avid fisherman, loved camping, gardening, and the mountains he called home. He was quite the jokester with a quick wit and shared his love of laughter with everyone he met. He never left a quiet stranger, sad child or hungry animal. Tim and Gerry enjoyed many years of traveling together and living life to the fullest with their beloved pup, Mitzi Anne. He was loved by many for his giving heart, helping hand and was always ready to tell a funny story or a tall tale from days gone by. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him. He was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Essie Wyatt; a sister, Sarah Collier; two brothers, Ted Wyatt and Fred Wyatt; and a daughter-in-law, Kitty C. Wyatt. Tim is survived by his loving and devoted wife of over 61 years, Gerry Wyatt; his son, Randy Wyatt of Pound, Va.; two daughters, Deborah Muncy and her husband, Steve, of Check, Va. and Kimberly Roberts of Abingdon, Va.; a brother, Roger Wyatt and his wife, Charlotte, of Wise, Va.; a sister, Vickie Trent and her husband, Roscoe, of Troutdale, Va.; six grandchildren, Joshua Aaron Wyatt and his wife, Erin, Stephanie Nicole Wyatt, Brandi Ingram and her husband, Wayne, Emily McGuire and her husband, Dustin, Cassie Muncy, and Stephanie Brooks; seven great-grandchildren, Maxx Avery Wyatt, Rafe Ingram, Limary Ingram, Tripp Ingram, Kinley Brooks, Hayden Brooks, and Marley Wyatt; and a host of nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
