(7/9/12, Los Alamitos) Sadly, a fine young man known by many in Los Alamitos was tragically taken from us by a traffic accident on Lampson in Garden Grove near midnight on the 4th of July.
Timothy Killian was a product of St. Hedwig School and earned his Eagle in local Boy Scout Troop 642 in 2009. He was studying culinary arts at Cal Poly Pomona.
I had the privilege of knowing Tim through Troop 642 where I served as an Assistant Scoutmaster. He personified so much of the Scout Law: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Cheerful. . . .
As the dozens of comments on Tim’s Facebook page attest, Tim will be missed by many, many friends:
- You were one of the most naturally positive people I have ever met.
- You will always be my favorite.
- I will never forget your contagious laugh Tim. You will never be forgotten because of the many lives you have touched in scouting and the O.A. alone, as well as mine.
- Of the fondest memories I have from our time at SHS was of Timothy’s compassion, kindness, but most of all, acceptance of others, a trait we don’t see very often these days.
- You were a smart student and good friend for all of us.
- Heaven just gained a big-hearted and joyful angel. Timothy Killian, pray for us!
- I’ll always remember you as the guy who was always smiling.
- I remember how sweet and genuine he was.
- Thank you for showing me that there are truly amazing people in the world who want nothing more than to make the world a better place by being a better person
