Timothy Elfman

January 10, 1959 — March 13, 2018

Timothy J. Elfman, age 59, passed away unexpectantly Tuesday, March 13, 2018 after a brief illiness. Born and raised in Dunkirk, New York, he graduated from Cardinal Mindszenty High School in 1976. He has been a Florida resident since 1983. Timothy was previously employed at Disney Theme Parks then went on to work at Lockheed Martin (formerly Martin Marietta), where he was a Technician Calibration Senior Specialist for over 30 years until the time of his passing. He served in the United States Navy for six years and was a Master Mason.
Timothy was very generous, compassionate, charitable, humble, sociable and friendly. He never hesitated to help someone in need, even total strangers. He gave his time, money and friendship easily, expecting nothing in return. "Paying it forward" was important to him. He looked forward to retirement because it meant having the time to help others and travel.
In recent years, he organized and provided on annual spaghetti dinners for veterans. Tim loved to cook and share meals, especially known for enormous batches of pasta sauce. He was determined to maintain regular contact with family and friends, often being the driving force to make that happen. Timothy attended his high school reunions every five years and was looking forward to this year's 60th birthday celebration with his classmates.
Preceded in death by his parents Ruth (Cheatle) Elfman VerHague and Mark Max Elfman, maternal and paternal grandparents, sister Nora, infant brother John David, and step sister Susan Waiss. Timothy is survived by his siblings Mark A. (Angela) of San Diego, Californian, Andy (Mary) of Fredonia, New York, Daniel of Fredonia, New York, Kathy Briggs (Gidge) of Largo, Florida, Janice Burton (Mark) of Depew, New York, John (Cece) of Jamestown, New York, and Cindy Driskel (Step Sister) of Wheatfield, New York. He is also survived by many cousins, nieces, nephews and many dear friends. In lieu of flowers memorial donations
may be made to the VFW .
