Timothy "Tim" Dean Goetz



Timothy Dean Goetz ,"Tim", 53, of Grand Coulee, Wash., passed unexpectedly, Monday morning April 6, 2015.

Born August 5, 1961, to Arlyce and Larry Goetz Sr. He graduated from Technical School as a diesel mechanic as well as a sheet metal worker in the HVAC industry. Tim married Carol Nicholson on April 10, 1999.

Being mechanically inclined, Tim could do just about anything he set his mind to, be it working on his sons' vehicles or antique tractors, helping friends and family fix broken items or creating new things from old.

Tim loved helping others and brought many smiles and lots of laughter to all. He especially loved family game night, fishing of any kind, entertaining people and kids, driving the old tractors in the yearly parade, and his weekly yard sale trips with Carol!

He was well loved and will be missed.

Goetz Sr. Survivors include his loving wife of 16 years Carol Goetz, mother Arlyce Goetz; brother Larry Goetz Jr .; children: Preston Goetz, Ryan Goetz, Albert Petri, Vera Petri and Robyn Gutierrez; grandchildren: Tyler and Maddie Goetz, Aljandro, Alberto, Isabella and Josefina Gutierrez , Haley Petri, Maddy Lee, and Mia West; as well as many loved nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.
