Timothy James Hoyle, the son of, Derek Hoyle and April Olson was born Dec. 11, 2000 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Carroll. He passed away on Monday, Jan. 10, 2022 in West Des Moines at the age of 21 years and 30 days.
TJ graduated from Paton Churdan High School with the class of 2019. He worked multiple jobs and learned numerous skills through all of them. His current job was at Mahalo’s where he decorated donuts and served fantastic coffee. He also kept his family happy by sharing those donuts with the rest of us.
TJ loved spending time with his family, which included roughhousing with his dad and siblings. He also got so excited at the thought of him and Grandma Kathy hopping in the car and going on an adventure.
Timothy loved to draw, and was a free-spirit from the start. You could always find TJ with markers and notebooks somewhere nearby. He had a passion for drawing and was phenomenal at it. He had numerous notebooks filled with drawings. His love for drawing was an escape for him, and he was an amazing artist. TJ did help himself with “weeding” the garden often, and he loved listening to all genres of music.
TJ and his mom enjoyed watching SpongeBob and Fairly Odd Parents when TJ was younger. He adopted the name of Timmy Turner shortly thereafter. He signs all of his art work with the pen name, “Timmy Turner.” He and his mom enjoyed talking about various topics such as conspiracy theories, astrology, and just wonders of the world. Sometimes these talks would erupt into heated debates but everything always got worked out in the end. Timothy and his mom also enjoyed bantering back and forth on which is better, Fords or Chevrolet, which we all know Chevrolet are better. When Timothy got his first tattoo he was so proud, knowing that Mom April has a couple; he was excited to show her, and they both were talking about the next one to get.
TJ always had a smile that would light up a room and put people at ease. He had such an enormous heart for others that he would push troubles to the side. He was a great friend who always stood up for the underdog. He would always stand up for his friends, but especially his siblings. He loved his brothers and sisters beyond what words can explain. He adored his siblings and seemed to play the big brother role well. He was always there to show them the ropes or to help with something they needed. He loved playing with all of them. He was a life size wrestling mat and trampoline.
