Timothy L. Napier, 58, of Speedwell, TN, passed away on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, at Lafollette Medical Campbell County. He was born in San Francisco, CA on May 31, 1963, a son of Stanley Napier, Sr. and the late Betty Uhl Napier. He had been a coal miner. Tim was a loving son, devoted husband, proud father and papaw, caring brother, and faithful friend. He was a talented musician and loved worshipping the Lord. He had a passion for singing and playing guitar or bass. He was a talented carpenter and was ready to take on a project for any of his friends. Tim loved watching sunsets from an overlook or from his prayer room. His love for coffee was strong. He carried a thermos of coffee everywhere he went. Tim also enjoyed riding motorcycles and the outdoors. As much as he loved these things, he had a true love for people. All who knew Tim would say that he loved with the love of God. He was always there with an encouraging word and a helpful hand. If you knew Tim, you were blessed to see the hands and feet of Jesus. Tim was the love of my life. He came along and loved me and Laura, making our lives complete. He was a devoted and selfless husband. Our love was the one kind of love that people dream of having, affectionate & adorable. He always took the opportunity to tell me, “U sure R purty.” He will be greatly missed, but I know that we’ll be together again someday. He is My For Ever and My For Always.
