Tim Paul Rivers Jr.

Timothy Paul Rivers Jr., or “Timmy” as he was affectionately known, age 35, of Safford, entered into our Heavenly Father's arms Wednesday, March 6, 2019, due to a fatal work-related accident in Silver City, New Mexico. Tim was born July 8, 1983 in Safford. He was preceded in death by: his grandpa, Wayne Prince, Sr. He is survived by: his two daughters Rylee Rivers, age 12 and Kenlee Rivers age 10; his fiancé, Shaylyn Whitmer; and her children, Serenity, Krisalynn, Shyanna, Kieralyn, Lahne and Rocky; his dad, Tim Rivers, Sr., his mom, Sherri Rapier; and step-dad, Wayne Rapier; his younger brother, Scott Rivers, two sisters, Julia and Skye Rivers; his two step-sisters, Michelle Taylor (Joe) and Carol Calhoun; two step-brothers, James Rapier (Jessica) and Wesley Rapier (Laura); his grandmothers, Della Prince, Kathleen Rodriguez and Verna Rapier; a grandfather, Eugene Rivers; an uncle, Wayne Prince, Jr.; and an aunt, Terri Sirota (Jeff); many other friends, family and his work family (his work brothers). Tim never met a stranger and always had a smile. He loved his job working for Komatsu and working alongside his work brothers. He was a hard worker and often worked six days a week. He learned his work ethic from his dad, Tim, step-dad, Wayne and his grandpa, Wayne Prince, Sr. When he was not at work, he would surround himself with his family. He would often be found at cheer competitions and other kid activities supporting and cheering them on. He loved his family, they were the most important thing to him. When he was at work, he was always talking about his home family and when he was home, he was talking about his work family. Tim was surrounded by some of his work brothers at the time of his death. We will be forever grateful to them for taking care of him during his last moments. Tim was a great son, grandson, dad, brother and friend. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

i miss tim with all my heart. he was the best person you'd ever meet. no matter what, tim always knew how to put a smile on everyone face. Tim's smile was always the brightest. I can't even begin to explain the pain we all feel with him gone. Tim was such a huge father figure to me. I miss everyday i was with tim and shaylyn, when tim would come home and we would all rush to give him hugs. Or whenever he would have to go to work, he'd come into the rooms, wake us up and give us a kiss on the forehead, or a hug and told us he loved us before he left for work. I know we will all continue to grieve with his death. Anyone close to him knew how amazing he was. We love you dearly tim, in life or death, always and forever.

I miss my dad so much its about to be a year without him and I had a memory play through my head today where every weekend when would get to see I remember his voice saying " hi babyyyy " and then I would give him a huge hug and he would pic me up and I would be so happy because I got to see my dad but I can't have that now but I know that he would want me to stay strong because he was strong so I just have to replay that memory.
