Timothy “Tim” Edward Cokeley was born on December 7, 1954 to Charles and Helen (Scheffel) Cokeley in Tyndall, South Dakota. He graduated from Scotland High School. On November 4, 1983, he was united in marriage to Pamela “Pam” Barrett in Scotland. For several years, Tim worked as an auto mechanic for Arney Furney in Scotland. For a time, he was a partsman at Palace Motors in Mitchell before permanently moving to Scotland and working at Mel’s Hideaway. For over 30 years, Tim was a rural U.S. Postal Service mail carrier for Scotland. He belonged to the Volunteer Fire Department, Lake Henry Board, Rural Letter Carriers Association, and helped with many local charities and organizations.
Known for his Hawaiian shirt, Tim loved to hunt, fish, and to work on his taxidermy. He also enjoyed restoring cars, wood working, and listening to music. He was a well-read man who also enjoyed challenging himself with puzzles. Tim had a great sense of humor, loved traveling, and spent countless hours of fun with friends and family.
Tim unexpectedly passed away on Friday, October 21, 2016 at Landmann-Jungman Memorial Hospital in Scotland having attained the age of 61 years, 10 months, and 14 days.
He is survived, remembered, and loved by his wife of nearly 33 years, Pam Cokeley of Scotland; sons James (fiancée Irene Valenzuela) Cokeley of Denver, CO, and Paul (Jie Li) Cokeley of Sioux Falls; grandchildren James Timothy Cokeley and Charlotte Cokeley; brother Curtis Cokeley of Des Moines, IA; sister-in-law Judy (Larry) Huber of Yankton; and numerous nieces and nephews.
