Timothy Wayne Workman, 38 of Gauley Bridge suddenly passed away on April 13, 2023, due to a long-term health condition. Tim was the son of Holly Patton Vance jr and Nellie Gray Vance (Moe and Missy) and Angela Putnam of Lufkin Texas. Tim is survived by his 4 brothers and 1 sister, Holly Patton Vance (3rd), Joseph J. Vance, Christopher Allen Vance, all of Huntington WV. Micah Passerby of Charlotte Michigan, and Linda Workman of Roanoke VA. He also left behind 5 beautiful children, Jamalyn Mae Workman 17, and Nathaniel Wayne Workman 16, of Gauley Bridge WV. Cooper LeeRoyce Demoss 8, Elyzabeth Kay Lynn Demoss 7, and Baylee Sue Demoss 5, of Runa, WV.
Tim joined the Marines at 17 and was a good Marine but he was a better husband and choose his wife and a different life for his family. He worked most of his life as a truck driver/mechanic, but his passion was landscaping. The past few years he has took on Jennifer and her now husband (Ronald Legg) and their children Jessica, Ella, Hayle, and Lexis as a bonus dad/uncle Tim. Tim also became his sons ‘’Ride or Die’’ and his daughter’s best friend before leaving them with just a part of him in their hearts, teaching them the meaning of unconditional love. Tim touched the hearts of many. Ex wife/best friend of 20 years, Jennifer Workman-Legg. She will forever hold a piece of him with her. He had several close friends that became family over the years and was the first to say blood doesn’t make you family. Tim had also spent the last 5 or more years rebuilding the bond with his older 2 children and be a better man for when the other 3 came to find him. Saturday we will gather 1-4pm at the end of South Swiss Road at the river to say our goodbyes. Sunday we will have a private family service. All stories are welcome, or pictures can be sent to Jennifer Legg or Jamalyn Workman via Facebook. They would like to put together a book to be able to help the other 3 children and future grandchildren to know who he really was.
