Timothy Lintner, 70, of Dover Delaware passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on September 25, 2021, after a short battle with Cholangiocarcinoma. He was born in Philadelphia, PA on July 23, 1951 to the late Ernest and Rose Lintner (Pierce).
He was a U.S. Air Force Veteran. During his time in the service, he was stationed in Mountain Home, Idaho, where he mastered his trade as a Machinist. He was last stationed at Dover Air Force Base and went on to practice his trade at Scott Paper Company, where he eventually retired after 25+ years.
Tim was a true patriot who loved his country and freedom. He would go out of his way to buy American Made. It gave him great satisfaction to raise and lower his flag each day. He was a member of the Blood Bank of Delmarva where he was a frequent donor. He was an avid hunter and enjoyed family trips to the beach and snow skiing. In more recent years, he enjoyed traveling, adventures with his granddaughters and would think of any excuse to take a drive. He embraced his role of Husband, Father, and Grandfather and took every opportunity to spend time and share his wisdom.
He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Edie Lintner (Hirth), his daughter Rose Redman and her husband Steve of Camden-Wyoming, DE; his son Tim Lintner and his wife Paula of Hartly, DE and his granddaughters; Emma Redman, Rachel Redman, Grace Lintner and Shelby Lintner.
