Born in Potsdam, NY on July 13, 1954 to Francis E. and Constance “Connie” Ford Hatch, Tim graduated from Colton-Pierrepont Central School in 1972 and continued his education at North Country Community College, graduating in 1974 with a degree in criminal justice. Marriages to Diane Goodnough and Brenda Dlugolecki ended in divorce. He worked for the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department for several years and later worked at Whites Farm Supply as an equipment salesman. He later worked for the NYSDOT in the Highway Department where he retired from in 2009. Tim was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, snowmobiling, atving and grooming for the Childwold SnoPackers. In his earlier years, Tim was an avid downhill skier as well. Tim belonged to many organizations and helped out with many charitable events. He was a member of the Sampson Pond Hunting Club in Childwold and sat on the Board of Directors for the Boonville Woodsman Days for 30 years. Tim’s passion was his beloved horses, Toby and Rick--The Double HH Percherons. Tim was always proud of his team, taking them to many shows and even became eligible to show at the 16th Worlds Percheron Championship in 2014, where he was awarded 15 ribbons out of a possible 16. He enjoyed giving rides for local events around the North Country and was always willing to give a helping hand to anyone that asked. Tim also enjoyed Jezebel and Kali—their family dogs. His heart was as big as him and always enjoyed time spent with his family and friends. It wasn’t often that he did not have a smile on his face. .
