Obituary for Timothy Brian Daly Jr.
Timothy Brian Daly Jr., 86, passed away on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at Fort Hudson Nursing Home surrounded by his family.
Born in Hudson Falls on September 12, 1931, he was the son of the late T. Brian and Dorothea (Finn) Daly.
Tim was a graduate of Hudson Falls School.
On January 19, 1952, he married Catherine Ruddock at St. Joseph’s Church in Fort Edward.
He worked at Finch Pruyn for more than 30 years as an electrician. Tim was a Jack of all trades, a master craftsman and his work was very thorough and precise. He passed along these traits to his son and son in-laws.
Tim was a member of the Smith Basin Athletic Club and IBEW Union serving as the secretary for a few years in his younger years.
He enjoyed bowling, playing cards, his many walks, and the ocean, especially Maine and Ireland. Most of all Tim loved spending time with his family. He volunteered his time to help install the lights at the Fort Edward Little League park, giving the children many years of playing baseball under the lights.
Tim was a man of few words, but when he spoke people listened.
