Timothy T. Wilde

December 13, 1950 — May 3, 2024

Timothy T. Wilde, PROUDLY from Toledo, Ohio and affectionately known as Tim, T-Dubs, TW, Cousin Smash, Mouse passed away peacefully on Friday May 3rd, surrounded by his loving family. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend whose presence touched the lives of everyone he came across.

In 1969, he met the love of his life, Jane Verhelst, and were happily married for 50 years!

Throughout his life, Tim valued education and instilling in his children the importance of setting goals and embracing their values. He was a proud graduate of St. Agnes, Central Catholic High School, Defiance College, and the University of Toledo. His proudest moments were witnessing all four of his children receive their college diplomas from Jesuit Universities and seeing his beloved wife graduate from the University of Notre Dame.

Tim was an educator, school administrator and guidance counselor at Toledo Christ the King and Blissfield, Findlay, and Anthony Wayne Public Schools. His career path changed in 1984 when he began his most Impactful role as a stay-at-home dad, "The Original Mr. Mom."

Tim and Jane were inseparable and enjoyed life - visiting family, hosting parties at 4238 - "Party at Wilde's" and taking advantage of Jane's University of Notre Dame status as a coveted Football Season ticket holder. Tim reignited his love for playing sports and became a die-hard softball and basketball player.

He was known as the "Mayor" of the East Toledo Senior Softball League where he played on multiple teams, umpired, and sipped Mich Ultra's. Tim also played in the Sylvania Senior Softball League and on numerous travel teams. Jane was at every game keeping the scorebook and cheering him on!

Tim loved rocking away on the porch, listening to his favorite tunes, rooting on his beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Boston Red Sox, Toledo Rockets and Xavier Musketeers and his "date nights" with Jane at the Casino.

He was predeceased by parents, Arthur and Helen, and three brothers: Mike, Jim & Johnny. Tim was PROUD of his family and will be deeply missed by his wife, Jane; four children, Patrick (Nicole), Kelly, Joseph (Crystal), Erin (Jeff Strobehn) and seven grandchildren (Elizabeth, Scaia, Luca, Avery, Noah, Zoey & Kaylee). A special Irish Blessing to his life-long friend and cousin, "Captain Smash", Kevin Curran.

As Tim walks through the Golden Gate, he will likely greet the Lord with his trademark introduction, "How are you doing? I am Tim Wilde, from Toledo, Ohio. GO IRISH!
