Timothy 'Tim' DeOrnellis
Timothy “Tim” DeOrnellis, 55 of Walnut Grove, Missouri, went home to be with Jesus on Saturday, January 16, 2021. He was born on March 21, 1965, in Moberly, Missouri, to Thomas and Roberta (Clarke) DeOrnellis. On June 6, 1987 Tim and Glenda Bergmann were united in marriage and shared over 26 years together, before Glenda’s passing on August 10, 2013. On October 6, 2018, Tim and Marlene Scoles DeOrnellis were united in marriage.
Tim was the pastor of The Church of God at Eudora, Missouri, a farmer, and worked for 22 years with Greene County Road and Bridge Department, where he was known as “Bull,” for his brute strength. He loved working with all kinds of equipment, but Chevy trucks were his favorite.
Tim enjoyed being outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, or cutting wood for others. Tim was a hard worker, he was always doing something, and often it was for someone else.
Tim loved people. He was generous with his time and was always there for people as a friend and pastor. Tim also loved to laugh and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was an unapologetic Christian, loving and loyal husband, father, and friend. Tim will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all those that knew and loved him.
