Tim Pegram, age 68, passed away Nov. 22, 2013, while vacationing in Nevada. Born in Nampa, Idaho, Nov. 20, 1945, Tim spent his adolescent years in Othello, graduating from Othello High School in 1964. After serving his country in the U.S. Army, Tim worked for the Milwaukee Railroad for a period of time. He then married Linda Boatman in 1969 and they settled in Kent where he had a long and successful career in the metal trades industry designing, building and installing custom air-bearing systems throughout the United States. He retired as a shop foreman from Hov-Air Inc. in 1999 and he and Linda moved to Meridian, Idaho, to begin retirement. However, Tim became bored quickly and went back to work, first as a member of a golf course grounds crew and later, as a special needs assistant to children in the Meridian School District transportation department, a job he said he wished he could have had forever, he enjoyed it so much. In 2010, he and Linda again relocated, this time to Kennewick where they currently reside. Tim is survived by his wife Linda of 44 years, daughter Tiffiney Pegram, of Meridian, and grandchildren Brian and Jordyn. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters-in-law Dannie (Keta) Pegram, of Othello, and Larry (Brenda) Pegram of Goldendale; his soul brother Ric (Vera) Yurisich, of Cashmere; and his sisters-in-law Cheryl Vasquez, of Boise, Idaho, and Betty (Sid) Hoagland, of Seattle; as well as several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Junior Pegram and Ruby Pegram Hanks. Per Tim's wishes, there will be no immediate service. A celebration of his life will be held at a later determined date in the spring of 2014 in the mountains above Conconully where he spent many happy times hunting, fishing and relaxing with his forever brother Ric. The family suggests that memorial contributions in his honor may be made to the Wounded Warriors Project at www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
