Michael G. Timmons, age 42, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 11, 2021. Mike was raised and educated in E. Bridgewater and, after graduating E. Bridgewater High, he served as an Infantryman in both the United States Marine Corps and the Army National Guard. Mike, a two- time Purple Heart Recipient, proudly served his country for sixteen years where he did multiple tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait.
Despite his many notable accomplishments in all his years of service, Mike’s greatest joy was being a dad. He was an avid fisherman all his life. Once he caught his first bass at his grandparents’ lake in Maine he was hooked. He also enjoyed scuba diving, playing horseshoes, and motorcycles but most of all loved spending time with his friends and family.
Michael is survived by his daughter, Grace “Gracie” Timmons of Whitman, his sister Heather MacQuinn and his nieces Mollie and Abbey, and his nephew Joseph MacQuinn of W. Bridgewater, his mother Deborah Timmons of Florida, his former wife Kelley Timmons of Whitman. He was predeceased by his father Michael J. Timmons.
