Tim Shock, 1969-2006

Washington mourns the recent passing of Tim Shock (1969-2006), who served as The Hill Newspaper’s assistant editor and in other capacities since March 2003. A funeral service is scheduled for today in Pennsylvania.

From The Hill’s obituary:

    Tim Shock was a quiet, modest and private man whose sudden death last weekend deprives The Hill of one of its hardest-working and most widely respected staff members. …

    Despite his mild-mannered nature, Tim would often surprise colleagues with a witty comment and quick laugh. Beyond his job, Tim volunteered for a variety of charitable causes. He edited copy for StreetSense, the newspaper for and about homeless people, and for a newsletter published by Habitat for Humanity. He also worked at a summer camp for traumatized children.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tim’s friends, family, colleagues and loved ones.
