Timothy L. Cornett, 57, passed away on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at Indiana Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis.
Born on July 31, 1966 in Kirksville, Missouri he was the son of Clarence “Hank” and Mary (Pratte) Cornett.
He attended Lakeville High School and fell in love with his high school sweetheart Jean Daugherty and they were married on April 27, 1990 in South Bend. Tim attended Southern New Hampshire University and worked as an area manager for J.W. Hicks in Knox for several years.
Known as a strong-minded man, but was somewhat of a softy when it came to his grandchildren. Endearingly known as Papa to the grandkids, he never missed out on spending quality time with them, making it an annual weekly quality time with them. Tim also had a great sense of humor, looking for a way to put a smile on someone’s face.
Family was everything to Tim, a wonderful provider that worked multiple jobs to always make sure that Jean and their boys were always taken care of and never went without. Some might say that he was downright dependable always willing to lend a hand to someone in need. Tim enjoyed his 2002 Wide Glide Harley, going “Jeeping” with Jean, spending time at the gym working out and enjoying one of his favorite treats ice cream.
He is survived by his mother Mary (Harvey) Jackson of Mishawaka; wife Jean of Plymouth; sons: Josh (Holly) Cornett of Walkerton; Cameron Cornett of Plymouth; grandchildren: Harper, Harlow and Judson; siblings: Rodger (Linda) Cornett of Ft. Wayne; Dehma (Ron) Nye of Bremen; Kevin Cornett of Mishawaka; Debbie Clark (Tim Phillips) of South Bend; Jeff (Lisa) Cornett.
Tim is preceded in death by his father Clarence “Hank” Cornett.
