He was born January 13, 1958, in Charlottesville, Virginia, to Grant Henry and Eunice Nelson (Via) Thurston. His beloved parents preceded him in death.

Tim drove a taxi cab in Charlottesville for 40 years. His love for the job and the people he carried meant the world to him.

Tim was a proud father to five wonderful children, Timothy (Heidie) Thurston, Jr. of Hamilton; Trinity (Lisa) Thurston of Van Wert, Ohio; Virginia Ashcraft of Charlottesville, Virginia; Melinda (Anthony) Morris of Waynesboro, Virginia; and Katie Anne Thurston, who preceded him in death.

He was also a grandfather to eight grandchildren; and a brother to several sibilings.

There will be no local visitation or services. Burial will be in the Beaverdam Baptist Cemetery, Vinton, Virginia, at a later date.

Young Family Funeral Home, Hudson Chapel, 612 North Main Street, Hudson is assisting the family with arrangements.

My Dear Tim You were a kind and gentle soul who worried about the people you loved and cared for more than you did for your own self . You always took the time to ask how I was and to give me a smile or a pat on the shoulder and you always praised me and my abilities to everyone and did your best to make me feel better no matter how crappy your day was. You were a wonderful person who will be greatly missed and I wish you love and peace in the afterlife dear friend Trina
