Marine Veteran Warrior, Timothy C McDonald passed away from natural causes while visiting his family and friends in New Jersey. A man of quiet determination, Tim was known for his character, courage, and conviction, and was dedicated to his service to this great country as a United States Marine. Serving with 8th Marines with Multi-National Piece Keeping Force in Beirut Lebanon, Tim was an outstanding Marine, great friend, Loving Father, and true patriot, a fact that was never more apparent than when he volunteered, on very short notice, to run 610 miles for the Statue of Liberty.

Tim is survived by three children, a sister, and two brothers. Please keep Tim’s family in your prayers and thoughts as we offer our deepest sympathy during this time of grief. Memorial Services were held on Tuesday Dec 13th from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Woolleys Funeral Home in Long Branch, NJ and was followed by a military ceremony at General William Doyle Veteran Cemetery in Wrightstown, NJ.
