Timothy "Tim" G. Deveno, 65, of West Springfield, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at Baystate Medical Center with his family by his side.
Tim was born on November 19, 1957 in Westfield, MA. He attended and graduated from Trade High School in 1975. During high school and well into his adult years, he actively played sports, especially baseball and softball. He was employed as a truck driver at AC Motor Express for 30 years and recently retired. He absolutely loved his 1994 Ford Mustang, horse racing, and cheering on his favorite football team, the New England Patriots. Tim lived an active life regularly exercising and taking pride in living a healthy lifestyle. He was also a long-time member of the Elks Club.
Most importantly he cherished his family and spending time with them. He was a devoted son, brother, uncle and brother-in-law. His family would say "he wasn't just a brother, he was a great friend". Many who were blessed to have known him would say he was a generous, kind and caring man who made everyone laugh with his funny ways and dry witty comments. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
He is survived by his loving mother, Ann Deveno. His brothers Patrick, Michael, Christopher, Andrew and his wife Sharlene, David and his wife Pam, Dan and his significant other Ellen Hurley, his sister Kate Gaw and her significant other Chris Quin.
