Timothy M. Crellin

Westbrook, ME - Timothy M. Crellin, born in Detroit, MI, passed away peacefully at his home on July 28, 2018 after years of battling Parkinson’s Disease.  

 

Tim was the beloved husband and life partner of Tina Crellin for 28 years. He is survived by his sons, Matthew Crellin, Sean Crellin, and Ryan Dumond; daughter, Jamie Dumond; and brothers, Charles Crellin and David Crellin.   

 

A longtime resident of Westbrook, ME, Tim lived in various places across the US and traveled extensively throughout his life. He was equally at home whether he was in Dallas, Santa Barbara, Maui, June Lake, Anchorage or Westbrook.  

 

Tim had a love of life and a passion for things he believed strongly in. He was a man of many adventures which led him down numerous career paths and endeavors. From Heli shot fire crew member in CA, surfer in Hawaii, executive career consultant, stay-at-home Dad for his children, Westbrook School Board Member for 8 years, equal rights advocate, to avid animal rescuer, Tim loved and lived it all to the fullest.

Dear Tina and family, I am so very sorry you have lost this amazing man. I would always marvel at how incredibly put together he always was. Sometimes I would want to sit on my sad looking fingernails or wish like heck I had ironed my slacks a little more carefully – or ironed them at all. He was a fun, caring, loving man and someone I had a great deal of respect for. I would often see him with his excel spreadsheet shopping at Hannaford for the rats he rescued and adored. He was very empathetic when my partner endured Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body. Tim had taken the Savvy Caregiver Course because of his Mom and when he learned I was going to take the course, he was willing to share what he know about the journey that was ahead of me. God bless this wonderful man and all of you. My heart breaks for your loss. May all the memories you have bring you comfort.
