Timothy enjoyed listening to music, watching music videos and rocking out on his new flying V guitar. Pepperoni pizza and chocolate shakes were a must. Tim’s first memory was learning to fish with his dad, Boni. He loved hunting and fishing and being out in nature with his dad. Tim loved his moms cooking and teasing and hanging out with his sisters.
Growing up, Tim enjoyed playing football in the Peewee League and listening to music. His love for music started at a young age, pretending he was Gene Simmons from KISS. Tim’s favorite things to do were cruising in his 55 Chevy or riding on his Harley and playing music in bands.
Timothy was a true friend who pulled no punches. He lived his dreams of playing rock n roll music, playing blistering fast, heavy metal music on his electric flying V guitar or playing blues on his acoustic. Timothy was always willing to share his experiences and teach music wherever he could. Learning to cook from his mom and dad, Tim shared his cooking expertise with his daughter, Chylsie. As a grandfather, he loved having teatime with his grandbabies, Athena and Alyza. Timothy Wayne Gauna lived life fast and furious with no regrets.
