Tim Speece Obituary, Death – Tim Speece, a dearly loved and respected member of our staff who was also a good friend, passed away on the evening of November 5, 2022, as a result of complications with his heart. Tim passed away in the early morning hours of the next day. Tim started working for the National Weather Service (NWS) at the NWS office in Waterloo, which is in the state of Iowa, on November 19, 1990. Waterloo is located in the U.S. state of Iowa. On February 9, 1995, the National Weather Service office that is located in Brownsville provided Tim with the option to become a journeyman forecaster at that location.
On May 10, 1998, Tim was promoted from his former position as journeyman forecaster to that of lead forecaster. This move brought him up to the next level in the company. When our office’s lead forecasting team first got formed, Tim was one of the first people to join it as a member of the original team. Tim possessed a wonderful personality in addition to a goodwill toward others, a brilliant intelligence, and a character that was easygoing. All of these qualities contributed to Tim’s easygoing character. He had a cheerful manner and was able to get along swimmingly with everyone he came in contact with.
Everyone had a good time because to Tim’s skill at establishing an easygoing environment. His humorous anecdotes would frequently cause one to engage in introspective thinking, and he had an unmatched sense of humor. The excellent person that Tim was can be attributed to a combination of many attributes, but these are just a few of them. He was held in extremely high esteem and was the object of great affection among his contemporaries. His absence will be keenly felt by a great number of people, both within and outside of the NWS. It is certain that his presence will be much missed. Following the passing of a beloved member of the NWS family, we have continued to observe a period of mourning.
We will continue to keep Yolanda, his wife, and the rest of Tim’s family in our thoughts and prayers even as they are going through the difficult process of grieving the loss of a wonderful human being.
