Timothy W. Trefry

February 18th, 2017

Timothy W. Trefry, age 57 of Billerica, formerly of Wilmington, died unexpectedly at home on February 16, 2017.

Tim was born on September 17, 1959; he was the dear son of Phyllis Gorman and the late Alfred “Bob” Trefry. Tim moved to Wilmington as a young boy and attended grammar school in the Wilmington Public School System; he graduated from Lexington Christian Academy High School in Lexington with the Class of 1976.

Tim was very close to his family and as a young man he enjoyed visiting flea markets with his dad; they found all kinds of treasures and sports memorabilia which he collected. As Tim got older he became quite a sports fanatic and he especially loved following the Bruins, Patriots, and Red Sox.

Tim was very proud of his children Jennifer, Kristan, and Bryan; he loved them with all his heart.

For many years, Tim worked hard as a loader operator for the Copart Auto Auction in Billerica until his illness forced him to retire.

Tim will be fondly remembered as a kind and sweet man who will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Tim was the cherished son of Phyllis Gorman and the late Alfred “Bob” Trefry of Wilmington, beloved father of Jennifer Salyer & her husband Brian of California, Kristan Trefry and Bryan Trefry both of Plymouth, dear brother of the late Jonathan Trefry, uncle of Michael Trefry & his wife Samantha of Ft. Myers, FL. Tim is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins.

    Good bye Tim. I’m glad I was able to reconnect with you even though it was a short time.

    I hate to see that you’ve gone, but I know you will be facing our Father in heaven now and you will be happy and pain free.

    God bless your Mom with the knowledge of that and the peace that comes with knowing you will be ok from now on.

    Phyllis, I’m thinking of you and praying for you.
    God bless you.

    Thoughts and prayers are with the Trefrey family. I remember Tim going back to the elementary school days at the Boutwell School. Tim was always a very kind, respectful and gentle person to all – he was a wonderful classmate and all were blessed to have Tim’s kindness touch their lives. I shared our Boutwell School grade 5 class photo on Facebook a while back – Tim was mentioned in a complimentary way by several. Peaceful rest to you Timmy – thanks for touching so many lives with your kindness……Amen

    I lived in the same building and on the same floor. I didn’t know Tim well, but he was always nice and we always said hello. We were both from Wilmington and actually lived fairly close to each other. I’m so sorry for his passing. I was saddened when I came home to find out this sad news.

  6. Lady Marion says:

    My dear Phyllis, I am so saddened to read the news of Tim’s passing, and know he will be so greatly missed by you, (one of life’s under statements). The Lord greatly bless you at this time. “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.” Love you.
