Timothy Jay McGrath


Timothy Jay McGrath, Loving husband, father, son and brother dies at age 48.

Tim's passing comes after a well fought battle with Esophageal Cancer.
He passed peacefully at home on Monday, January 7th 2019.
Tim leaves behind his wife of less than a year, Amanda, a 23 year old daughter, Courtney McGrath of Austin, mother, Sue and step-father, Peter Tracy of Bishop, CA and sister, Carrie Pizzalato of Metairie, LA.

Tim had spent the past 12 years working at Apple inc. in Austin, Texas. He loved fishing, history, film and cooking,

He requested to be cremated, and to have no public service or memorial. The family has complied with those wishes.

After being diagnosed with cancer he attended a retreat with Reel Recovery, a non-profit organization that provides men with all forms of cancer a unique opportunity to share their stories, and take part in a fun filled fly fishing trip that can accommodate any of the challenges that cancer would usually make impossible.

Tim has asked that any charitable donations be made to them at: http://reelrecovery.org/how-to-help/donate/
