Timothy Charles Kane -- February 1, 1950 – November 22, 2021
Tim passed away quite unexpectedly on November 22, 2021, at his beloved Colorado mountain home. Born February 1, 1950, in Watseka, Illinois, Tim was the son of Charles J. Kane and Phyllis M. (Johnson) Kane and was the second of their four children. The family ultimately settled in Salem, Illinois, where Tim grew up. Tim graduated from Salem Community High School in 1968. He went on to graduate from Southern Illinois University in 1972 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Tim began his career as a Mining Engineer for Shakespeare Oil Company in Salem but soon realized he was called to a different career path. Before setting out in a new career direction, Tim spent several months traveling throughout Europe. Upon returning to Salem, he packed up his ’66 Volkswagen and headed for Colorado. Tim explored several areas in Colorado and decided that Boulder was where he wanted to live. He immediately went to work as a carpenter.
In 1977 Tim began his tenure at Wyatt Construction as a construction superintendent and quickly advanced to the position of Senior Project Coordinator. During Tim’s 40-year career with Wyatt Construction Company, Tim managed the construction of well over two hundred million square feet of commercial buildings throughout Boulder County. His tireless work ethic, honest and direct approach, and his dedication to getting the job done right earned the respect of many subcontractors in the Boulder construction community. Time loved his work and was always excited to start a new project.
Tim was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. Tim met the love of his life, Pam, in 1978. Together they raised three wonderful children and shared a beautiful life for 43 years. Tim was exceedingly proud of his children, and he absolutely adored being “Pawpaw” to his grandson, Lewis.
Endlessly capable, Tim was always ready to lend a hand to family and friends as well as with school projects or repairs around the house. Tim designed and built the family home in Boulder’s Foothills where they lived for 37 years. Tim enjoyed hiking near his home and did so almost daily. He summited at least a dozen Colorado Fourteeners, and he spent many a Sunday skiing at Eldora Mountain Resort. In retirement, Tim and Pam traveled the world including a trip to Africa just this year.
Tim was blessed to have a large community of family and friends who will miss him dearly. Tim is survived by his wife, Pam (Rieger) Kane, of Boulder, Colorado; daughter, Erin (Blake) Walters of Longmont, Colorado; grandson, Lewis Kane Walters of Longmont, Colorado; son, Jason Kane of Lyons, Colorado; son Tyler Kane (Kaitlyn Jeanis) of Jamestown, Colorado; sister Kathleen Medder of Godfrey, Illinois; brother, Brian Kane of River Ranch, Florida; many nieces and nephews; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Barbie and Dale Rieger of Lafayette, Colorado; and brother-in-law, Randy (Erin) Rieger of Cottonwood, Arizona. Tim was pre-deceased by his parents, Charles and Phyllis Kane, and by his brother, Michael B. Kane.
