He was born April 28, 1974 in Columbus, Ohio and was the son of Larry Dean and LaVern Kay (Jarvis) Denton who reside in Van Alstyne, Texas.

Timothy is survived by his wife of seven years Andrea (Smith) Denton of Cape Coral, Florida who he married on October 25, 2008.

Timothy is preceded in death by his brother Thomas Scott Denton and both his maternal and paternal grandmothers, Juanita Mae (Fliger) Jarvis and Lois Jean (Dill) Denton.

He was beloved and will be greatly missed by his many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends.

He graduated in 1992 from Lewisville High School in Lewisville, Texas and attended the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. Tim worked at Kroger for 10 years followed by Best Buy for 10+

  • The world lost a special person. It is sad when they leave us to early. I will always remember how gracious Tim was when I stayed over at this house in Cape Coral with my 3 Australian Shepards. He made us all feel right at home and part of the family. I am glad I got to know him even if it was for a short time. Now Andrea and the pups will have to console each other through this difficult time. Though Tim will always be with her. I hope Andrea your memories with Tim will help you through your difficult time.
    Love, kisses and hugs,

    Your cousin, Sharon

  • God has received a beautiful soul which I adored . We were honored to share the short time we spent together. Tim was a lovely example of a gentle, caring man. He will be missed.
    Please accept our deepest sympathy Andrea. Hugs to you honey.

  • To the Denton Family, especially Andrea:
    We loved Tim and are grateful for the many times the 4 of us spent together. You both helped us many times and Tim was always ready and willing to bring his big truck and assist Mike whenever we needed something to be delivered or moved. We are also grateful for the many times Tim and Andrea had us to their house for holiday dinners. Andrea is a great cook — while I am not! We remember the birthdays we shared together at Iguana Mia in Cape Coral. Those were such fun times. We will miss Tim.

    We send our deep condolences to the entire Denton family.
