Obituary of Timothy Deal
Timothy Gerard Deal, age 32, was born on December 28, 1985 in Atlantic City Hospital, Atlantic City, NJ; to Gloria Deal and Michael King. He departed this earthly life suddenly on June 22, 2018.
Timothy, lovingly known as “Tim” and “Phella”, attended the Atlantic City public schools and graduated in 2004. He loved to sing and had an amazing voice. He was a loving and devoted son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, and cousin. His family was his world. He lit up any room he walked into with his beautiful smile and had the kindest heart. He was always there to give advice, be a listening ear, or a crying shoulder.
He was a go-getter and his adventurous nature drove him. Anything he had an inkling to do, he had the courage to try. He tried out for America’s Got Talent; opened a business with his sister and was always willing to relocate to find adventure. He loved to cook and try new dishes.
He is predeceased by: his grandmothers, Mae Deal and Delores Wiggins; grandfathers, Eugene Deal and Pedro Ortiz; great uncle, Marshall Moses (Jane); great aunts, Emily Howard and Rhuby Jackson and aunt, Regina Rowe.
