Timothy Sean Zimmerman

August 23, 1986 — January 15, 2024

Amelia Court House


Timothy Sean Zimmerman passed away Monday, January 15, 2024, at the age of 37. He was born in Camp Springs, MD, to Timothy and Mary Diane Zimmerman, and grew up in Ridgeley, West Virginia. He graduated from Frankfort High School in 2004. 

In 2005 at the age of 18, Timothy enlisted in the Navy. He valued this service highly and attained the rank of Chief Petty Officer. During his active duty service, he deployed numerous times on U.S. Submarines and was awarded many Achievements, Commendations, and Medals. His military decorations include the Navy Commendation Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, Presidential Unit Citation, Unit Commendation, Meritorious Unit Commendation, multiple Navy Excellence Ribbons, multiple Good Conduct Medals, Navy Expeditionary Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, and his Submarine Warfare Insignia. 

After 15 years of active duty service, he joined the Navy Reserves in 2020, and became employed by Johns Hopkins University as a Cyber Security Lead.

Beloved father, son, brother, uncle, grandson, friend, and coworker, he will be missed by many. He is survived by his precious children, Lyndon Aurora, Lucas Andrew, and Adeline Jolene; his parents, Tim and Diane; sister, Kristin Murphy and husband, Chris Murphy; Rachael Zimmerman; nephews, Tucker, Dax, Connor, Taleb, Leeland; and niece, Rosabelle; and grandparents, Joe and Barb Zimmerman.

He is preceded in death by his brother David Zimmerman and grandparents Joan Zimmerman, Joanne Huff, and James Huff. 

When he wasn’t working tirelessly to support his country and coworkers, he enjoyed making memories with his children and family. He was an enthusiastic outdoorsman from boyhood on to include camping, traveling, hiking, exploring, kayaking, and more. He was very practical, and could always be found with survival gear, gadgets, and a plan to save anyone or anything in any situation he found himself in. You could always count on him to channel his inner child and enjoy water parks, roller coasters, board games, bounce houses with his kids, niece, nephews, tease his loved ones endlessly, and always bring a smile to the faces of those around him. 

A Celebration of Life honoring the life of Timothy will be held with visiting from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, 2024 at Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike, Frederick, MD. This will be a time to celebrate him and share memories with friends and family. His wishes were to be buried at sea, so his ashes will be with us before he goes out on his last deployment.
