Timothy Allen Pincikowski, 45, passed away Tuesday July 28, 2009, unexpectedly in Saline, Michigan, as a result of a tragic biking accident. He was born May 24, 1964, in Racine, Wisconsin.
On October 12, 1996, he married Lisa Christopher, the love of his life. Tim worked at SC Johnson in the Polymer Division and then accepted a position at BASF as a Plant Manager in Michigan.
Tim is survived by his wife Lisa of 12 years and his precious children, Michael and Lauren Pincikowski. Also surviving are his parents, Leonard and Ruth Ann Pincikowski, who reside in Racine, Wisconsin; sister, Karen (Tim) Gross of Union Grove, Wisconsin; and brothers, Doctor Scott (Kate Luse) Pincikowski of Frederick, Maryland, and Mark (Jennifer Urban) Pincikowski of Port Angeles, Washington.
He is also survived by his mother in-law and father-in-law, Gail and Lester Christopher of Racine, Wisconsin; sister-in-laws, Jodi (Todd) Litzau of Franklin, Wisconsin, and Sonya (Timothy) Otwaska of Racine, Wisconsin; and brother-in-law, Brian (Maricella) Christopher. Michael Pincikowski's grandparents on his mother's side are Linda and the late Dave Nielsen. He is survived by numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Tim received most of his enjoyment from being with his family and friends. His hobbies included music (Beatles), biking, golfing, swimming, playing his guitar and reading. He also acquired his amateur radio license, obtaining his grandmother Fern Fisher's call letters W9LCJ. He loved to take his wife out for fine dining, theater and the movies. He also loved spending ''family nights" at home with Lisa and Lauren. His son meant everything to him; they discussed many books and different types of music at length. Tim's daughter was the apple of his eye. He took her on bike rides, adventures to the park and loved swimming with her. Lauren often yelled "daddy catch me." He loved to prepare the family's Thanksgiving meal, often kicking us all out of the kitchen. Last but not least, he was famous for his baked beans. He was loved by all and will be missed. We love you, Tim.
