September 4, 1968 - April 4, 2019
Timothy Lionel Tasker, 50, of Foley passed away at home on April 4, 2019 after a brief illness. Tim was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, co-worker, and friend who found the good in every person and every situation. He was an eternal optimist, and his good-nature and bright outlook on life influenced everyone around him. Tim was born in Lebanon, MO on September 4, 1968. He graduated from Lebanon High School in 1986 and went to college at the University of Missouri. He was a lifelong Mizzou Tiger, literally wearing his favorite Missouri Tiger gameday t-shirt to the very end. Tim was also a proud veteran of the United States Army and Illinois National Guard, and he considered his service in the Armed Forces as one of his proudest achievements and greatest honors. He traveled the world working in the food industry, finally settling on the Alabama Gulf Coast where he ran operations for Daylight Donuts in south Baldwin County and served in sales for the IL Group in Gulf Shores. In later years, Tim worked in sales for Sysco where he continued doing what he does best – making friends and serving others. Tim’s family will always remember him for his ever-present smile, generous and loving attitude, unwavering patriotism, and optimistic outlook on life (he considered a 110 golf score a good round!). He was also unwavering in his Christian faith, which began when he was saved at 5 years old. His faith brought him great comfort through his final days, which included daily visits from Reverend Ryan Cramer of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Foley. Tim also attended Mass regularly at St. Margaret’s of Scotland Catholic Church in Foley, where he made many friends. Tim will be greatly missed by all, but never forgotten. Tim is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Ashley; children Nathaniel Tasker, Emily Tasker, Robert Benford, and Katie Benford; grandson Ryle Benford; his loving parents, Tedd Tasker and Linda Fitch Tasker; sisters, Julia Epps and Lana Tasker; and in-laws, James and Sally Wilkinson. Visitation will take place on Saturday, April 6th at Pine Rest Funeral Home in Foley from 1:00-2:00PM, with a memorial service immediately following at 2:00PM.
