Timothy Staunton Obituary (1953-2021) – Greensboro, NC

Staunton, Timothy “Tim”

December 5, 1953 – December 8, 2021

Greensboro – Tim “Timmy” Staunton, 68, died peacefully on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, at Wesley Long Hospital with his family. Originally from Alamance County, he was born on December 5, 1953 to the late Wade Hampton Staunton Jr. and Doris York Longest, who survived. Tim was married to his first love, Laura Andrews Staunton, for over 21 years.

Tim worked as a subcontractor for Georgia Power in Atlanta and later retired as a field technician at Pike. He was a chubby, he loved working out in the yard, washing cars; He even once built a zip line that his niece’s baby dolls could play on. He was an avid sports fan. He loved the Atlanta Braves, but his favorite teams were his nieces. He was generous and kind to everyone and always gave more than he took. His friends and family knew they could call him for anything: even if the task wasn’t one of his specialties, he would find a way to help. He always wanted to be someone everyone wanted to trade favors with, and he was.

His wife is among the survivors; Laura, mother; Doris longest, brother; Wade H. Staunton (Gwen) and their children; Hampton (Hayley) Erin (Cameron), Gracen and Peyton; a sister-in-law; Anne Peacock, niece; Ashleigh Brown (Callum) and their children, who were like grandchildren to Tim, Gracie and Emma. He also has numerous other beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins. His father Wade Staunton Jr. and stepfather Bobby Longest preceded him in death.

A service to celebrate Tim’s life will be held at the Lowe Funeral Home Chapel on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at 12 noon, followed by the funeral in Pine Hill Cemetery. The family welcomes friends to the funeral home from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. before the service.
