Timothy William Hatley

February 10, 1953 ~ November 25, 2021 (age 68)


Timothy William Hatley, 68, of Rochester , TX  was called home by his Heavenly Father Thursday November 25, 2021. A celebration of life will be held Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 11:00 AM at the Hatley residence for family and close friends. 

Tim was born on February 10, 1953, in Longview TX to the late William F. Hatley and Linnie Pittman Hatley. He later moved to Merkel where he went to school and lived the majority of his adolescence. He retired from his job as a diesel mechanic at Lonesome Dove Transport on February of 2019. Little did he know, he was anything but retired. 

 Tim was a jack of all trades. He enjoyed working with his hands and could get anything running with a little elbow grease, duct tape and baling wire. He was a man of few words but his words spoke volumes. A few of his greatest joys in life included tinkering in his shop and taking care of all of his 4 legged friends (especially his cats). 

Tim is survived by his loving wife Sherry Hatley; daughter, Trisha Bell and husband Shane of Lubbock TX, daughter, Misti Snodgrass and husband Scott of Lubbock TX, step daughter Sabrina Speck of Weinert TX, step son Wesley Powell and wife Nikki of Mertzon TX; granddaughters Ashley Fahrlender, Jade Braziel, Skylar and Jensyn Speck, Finnley and Amelia Powell, grandson Austin Fahrlender and wife Krishna, and grandson Brelynn Powell; 2 great granddaughters, Ziryah and Aayvri; brother Bill Hatley of Dardanelle AR; a handful of nieces and nephews; his cats and granddog Slick; & extended family and friends.
