Timothy Donald Pock­at, age 30, of Sayner, Wis., died on Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, at How­ard Young Medical Center in Wood­ruff, Wis.

Tim was born on March 14, 1983, in Sayner, the son of Ronald and Mitzi Pockat.

Tim graduated from Northland Pines High School. He worked at Vinchi’s Hillside and for Peak Property Management, but loved to work as an auto mechanic at St. Germain Auto and Trailer.

Tim loved being in the outdoors, especially snowshoeing, enjoyed reading, and spending time with friends and family playing cards; his favorites were Magic and Sheepshead.

Tim was a fiercely loyal friend, a big strong guy with a gentle and accepting nature that allowed him to love without any kind of judgment and accept people as they were. Tim loved his family, friends and community.

He is survived by his parents, Ron and Mitzi, of Say­ner; and his brother, Dan, of Appleton; his paternal grandfather, Don (Carol) Pockat of Oshkosh, Wis.; and uncles and aunts, Michael (Diane) Pockat of Woodruff, Debra Pockat of Madison, Gary (Karen) Pockat of St. Germain, David (Barb) Pockat of Arbor Vitae, Brian Pockat of Appleton, Marge (Dave) Olmsted of Wausau, Mary Jo (Gerald) Literski of Wausau, Melisa (Ron) Polzin of Wisconsin Rapids, and Mark Urmanski of Denver, Colo.; and numerous cousins, other relatives and friends.

Preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Patsy Pockat of Sayner; and maternal grandparents, Edmund and Vivian Urmanski of Wau­sau.

Funeral services were held Dec. 7, 2013, at Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Sayner.

Family wishes to send our deep love and gratitude to the six guys who walked with Tim to the end, Anthony Drew, Austin Kazda, Wayne McCaughn, Cory Maanum, Tyler Renk and Alex von der Hoff.
