American Patriotic 10


Timothy S Wykes

July 1, 1948 ~ January 24, 2018 (age 69)

Timothy Smith Wykes, age 69, passed away peacefully at Deer Park Nursing and Rehabilitation in Nebo, NC , Wednesday, Jan 24, 2018. Formerly of Newton, Tim graduated from Newton-Conover High School and then proudly served in the US Air Force. He suffered a stroke at the age of 27 from which he never fully recovered. Although he spent the remainder of his adult life in assisted living and recently in skilled care, he made the best of life and never lost his love for and sweetness toward others nor his sense of humor. He was a kind soul who will be missed by his family. His mother, Elizabeth (Lib) Morrison Wykes preceded him in death. He is survived by his first cousins Patrice Morrison Auspitz of Raleigh, Sherry Morrison Kirby of Newton, Morrison Lowrance of Kaiserslautern, Germany and Nelie Morrison Prince of Huntington, W. VA. Donations in memory of Tim can be made to the charity of your choice, and are welcomed.


There are no services planned. The family will have a private memorial at a later date.
