Easton, MA - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Timothy C. Hedrick on Monday, August 31, 2020, after his long struggle with diabetes and health issues from a stroke in 2010.

Tim, 52, was born December 26, 1967 in Providence, Rhode Island, grew up in Easton, MA and graduated from Southeastern Regional High School in 1985.

Tim was preceded in death by his father Thomas J. Hedrick of South Easton, MA, grandparents Charles and Winifred Hedrick of Randolph, MA and grandparents Charles and Irene Prentiss of Ayer, MA.

Tim loved to entertain his family and friends. Whether it was playing the piano or cooking up a fabulous meal, it was his goal to ensure everyone was having fun. He acquired his musical talents from his mother and father both of who were music teachers. His talent allowed him to play in various bands from Tarrytown, NY to Fairhaven, MA with the band called Overboard. His passion for music showed through on stage or in the comfort of his living room or backyard. Tim was full of adventure. His talents expanded beyond music, as he was an accomplished skier who earned his Professional Ski Instructors Level 3 certification. He was the ski coach at Oliver Ames High School and a ski instructor at Mt. Snow and Stratton. Additionally, he worked for Rossignol ski company, as a Marketing Sales Representative.

Another passion of Tim's was boating and fishing. He was a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary – New Bedford Flotilla 1N65. He captained many family outings on his boat. Whether it was trolling for striped bass in Buzzards Bay or reeling in monster sharks on the Vineyard, the water was where Tim wanted to be. He participated in the Monster Shark tournaments for many years. In July 2005, he was part of the Bobby's Girl IV fishing crew who won the 19th Annual Oak Bluffs Monster Shark Tournament.

Tim's professional career started in Boston in sales. Then moving to Tarrytown, NY in 1992 where he held Account Management positions and then ventured to New York City. He also worked at a local ski shop in Tarrytown. He moved back home in 1999 and worked for AOL in Boston. Tim married Theresa Bouchard and resided in Fairhaven, MA for 11 years with their cats and dog Gracie.
