WILMINGTON – Timothy Carol Shidal, 36, of Wilmington, N.C., died unexpectedly Thursday, Aug. 4, 2016, at home.
Mr. Shidal was born Feb. 14, 1980, in Asheville, N.C., the son of Carol D. Shidal and Cathy Fowler Shidal.
He lived in Wilmington since he was 3-months-old. He attended Laney High School, graduating in 1998. He also attended Cape Fear Community College and was a purchasing coordinator/fleet and property manager at Liberty Healthcare Management for 15 years. There he was the finalist for the Diane Haskins Spirit of Liberty Award in 2011.
Mr. Shidal was an endearing human being with many great qualities. These qualities showed through in everyday life, in his work and into every person who was blessed to have known him. Whether a lifelong friend or just an acquaintance, no one could speak ill of him. He accomplished many things in life and was destined to accomplish so much more. Unfortunately, we must live the rest our lives with mere memories of this gracious and selfless man who has in some way big or small enriched our lives for the better.
