Tim passed away July 4, 2021 at the age of 56. He was the beloved son of William Ragen and Rita (Murphy). Timothy graduated from Our Lady of Confidence. Tim passed after a long 32-year battle with renal disease. During his battle, he developed many friendships with patients and workers at Renex Dialysis.
Tim was raised in Fishtown (aka Mayor of Fishtown). Tim's favorite things to do on his down time were playing solitaire, playing the lottery and doing is weekly scratch-offs. He enjoyed watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. He would read the Daily News and Sunday paper. Tim also enjoyed calling everyone he could to talk to them daily. He was passionate about Philly sports and often participated in fantasy football. Tim liked to cruise the neighborhood and visit with the neighbors who were out sitting on their steps.
Tim is survived by his 3 brothers William, Ronald (Joanne), Kevin (Theresa). He will sadly be missed by his many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, special neighbors, caretakers and dear friends. Tim will be greatly missed as he was quite the “character” and a very loved and cherished member of his family and the Fishtown community. Who didn’t love his smiles, his chuckles and his quick wit! Everyone will find comfort in knowing that he is up with relatives that have gone before him.
