Timothy “Tim” Lee Homola gained his heavenly home on the morning of Nov. 22, 2021, in his home in La Center, Washington surrounded by his wife, children, grandchildren and many brothers, sisters and friends in faith. Tim endured seven years of chronic leukemia and the final months of aggressive lymphoma.
Tim was born in Gackle, North Dakota, the second son of Melvin and Verda (Sarkinen) Homola, on July 13, 1954. He moved with his family to Clark County in 1965 at the age of 11. He attended Hockinson schools and graduated from Battle Ground High School in 1972.
Tim started his work career as a brick mason, working for his father and for a time was part owner of Custom Masonry until he decided he would like to start a logging business in 1988. He was the owner of TH Logging, LLC until he retired in January of 2019 and sold the business to his two youngest sons, Daniel and Brian.
Tim was a member of the Old Apostolic Lutheran Church and held his Christianity as first and most important in his life. Tim was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping with his children and grandchildren. Tim thoroughly enjoyed traveling and brought his wife and children on many trips across America and Europe to spend time with his friends in faith.
Tim is survived by his wife of 46 and a half years Diane, one daughter and five sons Katrina (David) Bowers, Eric (Windy), Randy, Scott (Jamie), Daniel (Madison), Brian (Kaley) and 24 grandchildren, all of Clark County.
