Timothy K. Biddle, 56, of New Palestine, Indiana, went to be with his Lord and Savior on September 7, 2023. He was born in Franklin, Indiana on May 30, 1967, to Larry and Faith Biddle. In 1984 he joined the Indiana National Guard and was assigned to the 1438th Transportation Unit out of Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana. In 1989 he earned a Computer Business degree with a second major in math from Indiana Wesleyan.
In 1989 he worked for SAIC as a programmer, and in 1990 went to work for Naval Avionics Center as a civilian employee. In 1990 his National Guard unit was activated in support of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. He spent five months in the Middle East, where his unit moved forty percent of the equipment to the front lines. He was proud and honored to serve his country, and when he spoke of his service time he stood straighter and taller. The National Anthem always moved him to tears and it had much deeper meaning as a result of his military service. Anytime he saw a veteran he would approach them and thank them for their service and would often have a conversation with them regarding their shared military experiences.
Other previous employers include Perpetual Technologies, Riley Hospital Otolaryngology, Marsh Supermarkets, Wiley Publishing, and TATA Consulting. He was a sole proprietor of Faith and Works, an advertising specialty business for several years. At the time of his passing he was employed by eKuberVentures Inc. and will be deeply missed by his team.
Tim was raised to love God and on September 17, 1990 he was immersed for the remission of his sins. At the time of his passing he was an active member of the Fishers church of Christ. His Christian family will miss his vast knowledge of the Scriptures, his smile, sense of humor, and his sincere desire to encourage others.
On July 20, 1991, Tim married the love of his life, Melody Sue Hammer. On October 8, 1999, they welcomed their son, Levi Moses. Levi was the light of Tim’s life and his greatest joy and his proudest accomplishment was being Levi’s Daddy.
Tim was a dedicated fan of the Indianapolis Colts, Indy Fuel, and NASCAR and he loved inviting friends and family to the games and races. He enjoyed attending concerts with family and friends. This summer he enjoyed the following with friends and family: Government Mule, Jason Bonham, Foreigner, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lauren Alaina and Pentatonix. He was a Certified Professional Photographer and owner of Photos by TK. He loved technology, used only Apple products and had recently begun learning 3D printing. He was a passionate Peloton bike rider and completed his 3,318th ride shortly before his passing.
He was kind and generous and was happiest when he was taking care of those he loved and those in need. He loved to give gifts and could barely keep them secret he was so excited. He would tell people that his love language was gifts and insist that this was his way of expressing his love. He loved deeply with his whole heart and made life better for everyone he met. To know him was to love him, life with him was filled with adventure and love and he spoiled his family because it was the only way he knew to be.
He was a loyal and trustworthy friend who acknowledged his weaknesses and was quick to apologize and felt deeply when he wronged someone. He had his struggles like everyone else, but he never gave up trying to be a better person every day. He loved God, Jesus, family, friends, and everyone he met was a better person for it.
He had a tender heart, often wiping tears when watching television shows, listening to music, or seeing acts of kindness. He loved with all his heart, lived life all out, and if you did not have fun when you were with him you were not paying attention.
Tim is survived by his wife, Melody; his son, Levi; his parents, Larry and Faith, sisters Charity (Jay) Ayers, Rachael Dawn Goodwin, and Rhoda (Scott) Hyatt; nieces Brittany Mischelle Wood, Cheyanne Vernice Waterman, Kelsie Darleen Meredith and Faith Marleah Noelle Goodwin; and nephews Shaun David Hyatt and Colton Daniel Sanford Goodwin. He is greatly missed by his beagle, Cooper, who he loved very much.
Tim was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents and maternal grandparents.
