Timothy Carpenter, Sr. Obituary

Timothy Leroy Carpenter Sr. was born on December 20, 1962 in Dayton, Ohio, where he was a lifelong resident. He was the youngest of 5 children born to Victoria and Charles Carpenter, whom preceded him in death. Tim, also affectionally called Porkchop, graduated Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School in 1982.

Tim was very talented and held multiple occupations during his adult life. However, he truly found his passion on the road driving semi-trucks, which is what he did for over 30 years. Aside from the open road, Tim also had a deep love of Cadillacs and would collect them throughout his lifetime.

On September 15, 2000, Tim became a member of Morning Star Lodge Number 38 Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, which he held dear to his heart. He also was a dedicated Cincinnati Bengals fanatic and made sure to cheer them on during every game they or lose.

God called Tim home on February 23, 2024 at the age of 61. He is preceded in death by his brothers, James Carpenter and Ronald Carpenter, and nephew, Terry Carpenter. Tim leaves to cherish his memory: his brother, Charles Carpenter and sister, Bettie Carpenter; His daughter, Tenisha (Brian) and son, Tim Jr. (Janai); 6 grandchildren, Tim III, Tyler, Titus, Trevor, Tionne and Zoie; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends including Theodore aka Teddy (Ericka), Michael (Letita) and Tawana.
