Timothy Alan Thatcher, age 52, of Swanton, Ohio passed away Sunday evening, January 13, 2019, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Perrysburg, following a 5-year battle with Lou Gehrig's disease.

Timothy worked for American Steel Treating in Perrysburg and Woodsage in Holland.  He loved football and rooting on his favorite team the Kansas City Chiefs.  Most of all, he loved being surrounded by his family and his grandkids.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents and his brother, Thomas Thatcher.

Visitation will be held Saturday, January 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton, where funeral services will begin at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) with Rev. Edward Strietelmeier officiating.  Interment will follow at Swanton Cemetery.

My prayers and thoughts are with your entire family during this difficult time. When my mom called to tell me of his passing, I just remembered all the many time, as kids, we played and played and played together at our home or yours. My heart is sad today for this passing.
