Timothy “Tim” J. Lynch, 64, of Great Falls, passed away peacefully at his home on April 5, 2024. Tim was the 13th child born to James H. and Muriel Lynch in Great Falls, Montana on January 10, 1960. He attended public schools before going to Job Corps where he obtained his GED. Tim had many jobs. He worked in food service, at NEW, and was a greeter at Benefis West campus.

He made many friends over the years and met his wife, Faye on the job. He married Faye (Dains) Carden and they were together for over 30 years. Tim missed her terribly after she passed. She always said, “He gives the best teddy bear hugs.” He enjoyed hosting BBQs for family and friends every 4th of July. He cooked lots of great food and enjoyed a few beers. No one ever went home hungry after one of his BBQs.

Tim loved celebrating and dressing up for all special occasions and the holidays. Family was very important to him, so he loved sharing all the holidays with them. Tim enjoyed NASCAR races, stockcar racing, bowling, darts, going to casinos, and traveling. His favorite singer was Elvis. He could be found singing his songs and impersonating him from time to time. He looked forward to going on breakfast dates with Faye and his family almost every Saturday morning.

Tim is survived by his sisters, Patricia (Leonard) Lynch Roberts of Great Falls, Eunice Lynch Bragg of California, Peggy (Rick) Lynch Jacobsen-Shepard and Susie (Alex) Lynch Kittle both of Arizona, Theresa (Donald) Lynch Keyes, Margie Lynch Robinson, and Donna Lynch all of Great Falls; brothers, Terry (Patti) Lynch of Williston, ND and Michael (Kathy) Lynch of Great Falls; stepchildren, Michelle (David) Howe and Mark (Rochelle) Defour both of Washington; six step-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
