Here's Tim's obituary. My condolences to his family.

Timothy Alan Paschen arrived in the land of angels on July 22, 2008. He was born to Bart and Judy Paschen in Seattle on November 25, 1959.

Tim married the love of his life, Charlena Spaulding, on November 19, 1983 and together they had four beautiful children.

Tim attended Eisenhower High School in Yakima. He was employed as a cook in various restaurants in Yakima and Seattle before going to work at NAPA Auto Parts in Selah. He worked there for 16 years, the last 5 as store manager. He left employment there last year to fulfill a dream of working for himself. With the help of his wife and children, he opened the PlayNTrade video game store in Selah on June 1, 2007. He loved the store and all the customers, especially the younger ones. He had a great sense of humor, and his corny jokes and zany antics were enjoyed by all. The store became a "safe place" for kids to hang out. He touched many lives and will be remembered by everyone who met him.

As a child, he had a vivid imagination. Once he told his mother that there was a "Giant at school with a Big Mouth". Upon investigation, it turned out to be a backhoe digging a trench. Typical Tim.

Tim enjoyed reading, sports, music and playing guitar and singing. He was a Seahawk fan and a very devoted and loyal Mariners fan. He loved John Lennon and the Beatles and could answer just about any trivia question about them. One thing is certain, he won't just make the angels smile, he'll have them laughing out loud -- and singing the Beatles!

His greatest joy, however, was his family. He was always ready for family BBQs and loved the family dinners and get togethers at holidays.

He was not only Dad, but best friends with all his children. He was not only Husband, but friend, confidant, and "Rock" to his wife.

Tim is survived by his wife, Charlena, four children, Tyler, Adam, Samantha, and John, all of Selah, his parents, Bart and Judy Paschen of Yakima, and his brothers, Andy (Sarilyn), Ken (Tammie) of Ellensburg, and Tom (Vicki) of Everett, and by numerous relatives and in-laws. He was preceded in passing by his grandparents Jim and Nell Paschen and Virgil and Viola Treadwell, and by his uncle Tom Paschen.

Tim is now our Guardian Angel.

A guardian angel sometimes flies so high as to be beyond our sight, but he is always looking down upon us. (Jean Paul Reichter)

Viewing will be from 1 to 5 PM on Monday, 7/28/08 at Valley Hills Funeral Home, Terrace Heights.

Services will take place at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, 7/29/08 at Valley Hills Funeral Home, Terrace Heights.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who attended Tim's funeral. The room was filled to overflowing. We have appreciated all the support we've felt from everyone over the last few months. Tim made many friends throughout his life with his generous spirit and likeable nature. He filled our home with love, corny jokes, Beatles music, and playful banter. His optimism for life was contagious and we all miss him terribly. He was the rock of our family and we've all have felt quite lost without him. Tim worked hard for his family to make sure we had everything that we needed. Whether it was an ear to listen, a joke to share, a smile to warm the heart, coach or moderator, he was there!
