Timothy Riley “Tim” Rector passed away on May 14, 2024. He was born on September 28, 1940.

Tim was a beloved member of the community, having served as the past fire chief at Laurelton Fire Department, Irondequoit, NY. He found great joy in his role as a firefighter and cherished the camaraderie among his fellow firefighters. Tim was also an avid sportsman, enjoying playing softball and bowling for Laurelton. His passion for music shone through as he entertained everyone with his guitar and beautiful singing voice, with “Danny Boy” being a favorite among his listeners.

The Buffalo Bills were his biggest passion. Sundays were for football and nothing else.
