Timothy Harold Knapp

October 11, 1965 - June 3, 2021

Timothy Harold Knapp of Wilmington, NC passed away unexpectedly on June 3, 2021.

Tim was born in Iowa City, Iowa on October 11, 1965 to Boyd and the late Ruth Knapp.

Tim graduated from Cape Fear Technical Institute with an Associate Degree in Electronic Engineering and Automotive Computer Technology. Tim was an avid science fanatic with a passion for the heavenly bodies (1066). He also had a love for archaeology and history of the Civil War. Tim will always be remembered for his extreme intelligence and wicked sense of humor.

Tim is survived by his children Savannah Knapp of Willard, NC, his son Joshua Knapp of Wilmington, NC, the mother of his children Wendy Knapp, his father Boyd Knapp of Wilmington, NC, his sister Cat Clarke (Peg) of Illinois, his nephews Danny and James Blount, and his great niece Kavindra Blount. In addition to his mother, Tim is preceded in death by his brother Edwin Knapp. Tim will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He never knew how much he was truly loved.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you live each day to the fullest, be kind and compassionate to others, and always tell the people in your life that you love them, as you never know what tomorrow will bring.

“A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than necessary.”

A private family memorial will be planned for a later date.
