Tim was born September 22, 1971 in Burgaw, NC to Dennis Johnson and Pansy Brinkley. He graduated from Pender High School, joined the NAVY and honorably and selflessly served his country and fellow brothers during the Gulf War. He married his best friend Kelly Shutter in June of 2002 and had his one and only child, Adelynn, in October 2007. He lived life to the fullest, never knew a stranger, gave the shirt off his back a MILLION times, said things no one else would, stayed true to his core beliefs even if it left him feeling alone, loved the KC Chiefs and KC Royals, NASCAR and golf, appreciated and advocated for simple and genuine acts of kindness and forgiveness, loved/missed/admired his “brothers” (Navy boys you know who you are…), he loved to chit-chat, listen to music, cook; he was a drummer, an entrepreneur, a business man. He was ANYthing and EVERYthing he ever put his mind to, success or failure, he always tried. He lived by this rule each day of his life and instilled this within his girls.
He was preceded in death by his Grandfather Fletcher E. Johnson who was his Idol and Hero and man he always wanted to live up to, his Grandmother Myra Johnson, Aunt Harriet, Uncle Johnny.
He is survived by his wife of 16 years Kelly L. Johnson and their child Addie, his father Dennis Johnson, mother Pansy Brinkley, his Father-in-Law Greg Shutter, Mother-in-Law Kathy Shutter, Uncle Keith and Aunt Laura, Aunt Francis and Uncle Kenneth, Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Earl, Aunt Betty Lou along with many, many cousins- all of whom he loved.
