Timothy Gleason Obituary, Death – Timothy Gleason, a beloved individual aged 52, departed from this world on Saturday, September 2, 2023, at 9:18 am, surrounded by the comfort of Christian Northeast Hospital. His life’s journey, while marked by its brevity, was filled with love, family, and connections that touched the hearts of many.
Born on August 31, 1971, in Alton, Illinois, Timothy was the son of Angela (Manescalco) Wiegand and the late Terrence Wiegand. Throughout his life, he remained deeply connected to his family, drawing strength and inspiration from the bonds they shared. Timothy’s memory lives on through the love and support of his family. He is survived by his mother, Angela, who provided him with a nurturing and caring environment. Timothy’s brothers, Joe Gleason of Rosewood Heights and Terry Wiegand of Wood River, were not just siblings but also trusted companions who shared in life’s joys and challenges.
In addition to his brothers, Timothy’s nephews and nieces were a source of pride and happiness for him. He cherished his relationship with Zak, Terrence (and his partner Kaitlyn), Alexis, Kayla (along with her partner Chandler), Brooke, Joey, Meadow, and Taylor. These young souls brought joy and laughter to his life, making every moment together precious. Timothy’s love extended to the younger generation even further, as he held a special place in his heart for his great nieces, Rylee, Riley, and Ellie. Their innocence and exuberance surely brought light and warmth to his days.
Among Timothy’s closest relatives were his aunts and uncles, including Ann (Mark) Riley and Annette (John) Friend. These family connections were not just ties of blood but also bonds of love and support that strengthened him throughout his journey. Timothy’s cousins, Tori and Abby, shared his life’s milestones and experiences. Their presence was a constant reminder of the enduring connections that bound their family together. Abby, together with her partner Zack and their son Beckett, represented the continuation of the family’s legacy and the promise of a bright future.
As we come to terms with the loss of Timothy Gleason, we remember him not only as a son, brother, uncle, and friend but also as a thread in the rich tapestry of his family’s history. His memory will forever be cherished, and the love he shared will continue to resonate in the hearts of those who knew him.
In honoring Timothy’s memory, we find solace in the bonds of family and the connections that endure beyond the confines of time and space. May his soul find eternal peace, and may his family find comfort in the cherished memories they shared with him.
