- Timothy James LeCrone, 67, passed away on October 3, 2017, at his home in Waynesville, NC. He was born on April 21, 1950, in Aberdeen, Maryland, the son of Gerald and Susan Leamer LeCrone.
Tim spent his early years growing up in Duncansville, PA, and his later youth in Daytona Beach, Florida. In his twenties, he moved to Maine and worked for many years as a sales rep for Baxter, traveling the state and assuring that area hospitals didn't run out of supplies, wry humor, or tall tales. This led to the discovery of treasure in the halls of EMMC, where Tim met his future wife, Rolanda, whose nursing skills, among other things, he admired greatly. It also led to a professional change, and the last half of his career was spent as an RN at both EMMC and the VA, where he cared for his patients with skill and dedication always, and humor whenever possible.
Tim leaves lasting memories of his sage advice not to take any wooden nickels, and, when fielding complaints of boredom, exhortations to go stand on your head and whistle "Dixie" or play tiddlywinks with the manhole covers. The latter was responsible for two succeeding generations learning to play tiddlywinks.
Tim is survived by the love of his life and wife of 27 years, Rolanda Tompkins LeCrone, of Waynesville, North Carolina, brother Gerald LeCrone and wife Debbie of Ormond Beach, Florida, sister Cindy Dibble of DeLand, Florida, daughter Toby LeCrone of Gardiner, Maine, sons Timothy Lecrone, Jr. of Waterville, Maine and James LeCrone of Fairfield, Maine, and grandchildren Kealeigh Bradford, Christian Bradford and wife Marisa, Sophia Bradford, Caelan Lecrone, Ty Lecrone, and Alexandria Lecrone, all of Maine. He was predeceased by his parents.
