Timothy John Gabik was called to Heaven to join his beloved parents Raymond and Rita (Mikalofsky) Gabik and Brother Ray Joseph, on Wednesday October 30th, 2019 at the age of 57. He is survived by his Loving Wife Christine . Devoted Father to Amanda Gabik, Stepchildren Kayla and Kyle Lambert and Grandfather to Bentley Parker. Loving Brother to Rita Mary (Paul) Boese, Nancy (Mark) Franszczak, and Peter (Laurie) Gabik. Cherished Uncle to John Boese, Jenny (Allen) Eagle, Nick (Amy) Gabik, and Jacob Gabik. Further survived by other relatives and many great friends.
Tim had a great sense of humor, and always wanted to make others laugh. He fulfilled his commitment to his country and retired from the Army Reserves. His passion for driving allowed him 37 years of driving a Semi, in addition to his true love of riding his Harley Davidson. Tim was extremely grateful for the gift of life he was given by Christ, and his faith allowed the willingness and courage to persevere the long four-year battle of cancer.
The Celebration of Life will be held at 2pm on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at Central Christian Church, 933 N. Lindsay Rd, Mesa, Arizona 85213 with visitation beginning one hour prior to the service at 1pm.
