It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son Tim, 55, (Durango Tim). He was a resident of Durango for more than 25 years. He is survived by his loving son, Jack, his parents Barb and Ed Maher, and his brother Michael. He was a graduate of Villanova University and an avid fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. He worked as a financial advisor at Edward Jones and Wells Fargo Advisors. Tim loved all the outdoor adventures in Durango including the Snowdown Follies.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Downingtown, Pa. in January 2022.
To offer your sympathy during this difficult time, you can now have memorial trees planted in a National Forest in memory of your loved one.

MEMORIES & CONDOLENCES
Jack, Barb, Ed, Michael--
I came to know Tim 30+ years ago through my younger brother. As others have said, he was witty, fiesty, funny and charismatic in my dealings with him. He loved to tell stories and brought high energy to conversations.
A couple years ago, he drove up the canyon, on short notice, just to have dinner and drinks w me at Purgatory. As a dog lover, they were part of the package.
I noticed that he knew people wherever he went. He was never at a loss for words-- or jokes. And he was a loyal friend to my brother through thick and thin.
While I never met his family, I know that he was immensely proud of Jack. I will miss him and would like to offer my positive support to you. You should be proud to have contributed to his generous spirit.

Nice I able to shake your hand Mid November 2021 at the El Rancho. When you were in Town sitting with a friend in the window seat of the Rancho that night. I didn't normally go to that bar. I asked how things were doing you said you had moved to Florida. Said you were here to clean out your locker. I said I was going to miss you. An I said I hoped you would return. One never knows the future so we must all appreciate the moments we have with each other.
I supported you in your run for local office Because of your Idea for the BUZZ Bus. It was a wonderful idea to help people not get into trouble. I don't know how or why you left this world. I just know I felt warm Laughing with you - because you liked laughing with me.
So long Tim. I will keep my arms wide open. I hope you do also.

Tim, I will miss your wit and funny sense of humor. Thank you for being on the school safety task force committee board with me when I asked you to. You said absolutely yes and were ready to help. You were a wonderful father to Jack. I witnessed this as a neighbor and friend. My heart breaks for Jack. He will miss you dearly. Our Durango community will miss you and so will I. Rest In Peace my friend.

I am so sorry for your loss; Tim was my boss at Edward Jones and we worked together at Wells Fargo later. I will always remember his smile and laugh; always had a joke to tell or a great story. They don't get any better than Tim!

Dear "Mr. Maher" - the brightness you brought into every room you walked into - and every stage you commanded! - will trail you through the cosmos like the tail of a comet as your next journey commences. I´ll look for your light in the heavens, podnah. We´ll all see your light coursing through the skies. Thanks for the laughter you delivered and wielded with such grace and such classy style, Tim. We are diminished.....

I am so sorry to learn about Tim, He always had a smile and a laugh for everyone. Witty, funny, and kind is what I know about Tim. I was in Snowdown with Tim over the years. He was grand. He was very good to Betty who worked for him. She adored Tim. His Durango friends will speak kindly of him and remember his great smile and voice. My heart hurts for his family .
