Tribute & Message From The Family

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 is survived by his mother Carole Hedrick of Easton, brother Tom Hedrick and his wife Jodi Hedrick of Seekonk, MA., brother Terry Hedrick and his wife Lindsey Hedrick of Easton, MA, brother Todd Hedrick and his wife Kimberly Hedrick of Easton, MA, nieces Jordan Hedrick, Sydney Hedrick, Rachel Harrison, Amber Harrison, Caitlyn Hedrick, Riley Hedrick, nephews Connor Hedrick and Carter Hedrick, uncles, aunts, and cousins.

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.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you please donate to the Type 1 diabetes foundation at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/seekonk-policefire/jimmoore16

A celebration of Tim's life will be at a time and date yet to be determined. He wished to be cremated and his ashes spread into Buzzards Bay.

So many memories of Capt. Fun. We had so many fun times. From our early days at Nana and Grampy's cottage The Pixie, to lunch meet ups when we both worked in Waltham, to the ski house at Mt. Snow where I met my husband to the trips Tim took to visit us in Falmouth on his boat. We will never forget you Tim! XO Cousin

We have many fond memories of Tim, but one stands out the most.
Richie and I had a Christmas tree farm and Yvonne, John, Teresa & Tim world come to NJ and help us sell the trees. Tim found Yvonne's childhood piano and took it outside on the patio. We wrapped himself up like an angel , had a cigarette dangling from his mouth and a tip jar on the piano. He started playing Christmas songs. Who new such wonderful tunes could come out of that little piano. The customers loved him. The next year they asked where Tim was, but that was the year we lost John and it just wasn't the same anymore. Richie and I were so grateful for Tim. He watched over Yvonne and helped her through many tough spots. He would call us weekly and let us know how she was doing. That was a true friend. We will be missed. We love you Tim

Tim's loss was a shock. He was a pleasure to see on the dock and always had a smile no matter how difficult that life became. He had a rough couple years but seemed to never give up. Condolences to the family and may he rest in peace.
