March 5, 1958 - November 3, 2021

Timothy R. “Tim” Smith, age 63, of New Castle, DE passed away on Wednesday, November 3, 2021.

Born in Wilmington, DE on March 5, 1958, he was a son of the late Ralph E. and Theresa I. (Eisenhauer) Smith. Tim retired after 29 years as a natural gas technician for Delmarva Power. He was a jack-of-all-trades who loved to tinker with anything electrical or technical, and was able to fix anything. Tim loved motorcycles; his pride and joy was his Ducati Monster. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need, never wanting anything in return.

Tim is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Patricia A. (Townsend) Smith; sons, Daniel T. Smith, Kevin G. Smith, and Jason T. Smith; brothers, Robert Smith (Anne) and Larry Smith (Sharon); and many extended family members.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 11 am on Friday, November 12, 2021 at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a funeral service will begin at 11 am. Per the family’s request, face coverings will be required for all those in attendance regardless of vaccination status. Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 North DuPont Highway, New Castle, DE.

  • Patty and family

    My sincere condolences.

  • Tim was truly a great man. We grew up as best friends living across the street from one another.

    In the past, Family would bring me back to visit. It was that opportunity for me to say hi and catch up. The passing of my mother was my last visit with my good friend Tim.

    I have lots of memories I will hold close to heart. The description of Tim as Mr. Fixit made me smile as I had several “fix it” experiences with Tim. He was a true giver and loved to help anyone and everyone

    Bobby and Larry, I am sorry for the loss of your older brother.

    Patty, my deepest sympathies for the loss of your husband and father to your sons.
