BELFAST — Timothy Andrew Gordley, age 69, also of Dayton, Ohio, passed away peacefully at his home in Belfast Sept. 7, 2021. Born to Jerry and Jeanne Gordley in Brooksville Feb. 15, 1952, Tim later welcomed his younger brother, Scott Gordley, and younger sister, Beth Gordley-Smith, to the family.

Tim attended Brooksville High School and graduated in 1970. Thereafter he attended Ohio University, majoring in psychology. Soon after he met Anne and they were married in 1973. Together Tim and Anne had one daughter, Tamara. In 1977 they moved to California and that’s where Tim’s lifelong love of the ocean began. Tim became an avid sailor and even lived on a boat in Marina Del Rey for two years.

Tim always had a knack for electronics and pursued a career in audio/video. He was an amazing guitarist and later taught himself drums and bass, which turned him into a one-man band. Tim loved producing his own CDs, which he would lovingly share with his friends and family. Tim was also a car fanatic and loved his classic muscle cars.

In 1993, he moved to Portsmouth, R.I., to be closer to his family, and would commute to Boston, ultimately continuing his audio/video career, as well as beginning to explore his love of computers.

Tim moved to Belfast in 2001, following his family, and later started his own computer repair business, becoming the owner of Hawkeye Computer Repair. Tim made many friends out of his customers and loved what he did.

Tim lived near his family in Belfast for more than 20 years. Many who knew him will remember him as a happy free spirit who loved to make people laugh and was always the life of the party.

Tim was predeceased by his parents, Jerry and Jeanne Gordley. Tim leaves behind a daughter, Tamara Aquino; a sister and brother-in-law, Beth and Terrance Smith; a brother and sister-in-law, Scott and Debi Gordley; a nephew, Lucien; two nieces, Ava and Evan; and several great-nieces and -nephews.

His memory will be celebrated by his family and close friends in a private celebration in October. RIP, “Timmy.” You will be forever missed but never forgotten, and always in our hearts.
