Tim will forever be remembered as a kind hearted and loyal man with an engaging sense of humor. Tim loved his family, his friends and enjoyed building relationships with everyone he encountered. Tim was born on December 3, 1966 in Renton, Washington. He grew up in the Kent, Washington area.

His loss will be deeply felt by wife of 25 years, Kathy, and his two sons, Mack and Wyatt. He is also survived by his mother, Ruth Jagusch, and her husband, Fred, his father, Tony Scribner, and his wife, Anne, his brother, Chris Scribner, step brother, John Jagusch, step sister, Dawn Jagusch. Tim will be greatly missed by his father and mother-in-law, Gary and Ange Tressel, his six sisters-in-law, their spouses, and his many nieces and nephews.

Having aspired to be a soldier from a young age, Tim entered the military after high school, joining the Army in 1986. He served stateside before going overseas for many years, where he worked on the Hawk Missile System in Germany. During his time abroad, Tim traveled extensively abroad and built many enduring lifelong relationships. He ended his career in Fort Lewis, Washington, where he was honorably discharged with a rank of Sergeant E-5 in 1991. During his military career, Tim received multiple awards and commendations.

Tim loved hunting, fishing, camping and the outdoors. Wrestling was one of his passions and he enjoyed working with young people in their wrestling endeavors. Always willing to help in any way necessary, he was an inspirational mentor to many. His outgoing personality and sense of humor helped him to connect with and support many people with whom he interacted over the course of his life. Spending time with his sons, and his nieces and nephews was a source of great joy in Tim's life.

Tim loved cooking and was always willing to share ideas and recipes for his latest kitchen creation. Shortly before his diagnosis, Tim had returned to college to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a teacher of students with special needs. In recent years, Tim had come to rely on his faith and God's strength played an important role in his life. We all find comfort in knowing that he is at peace with his Savior in Heaven.
