Born in Oakland on Nov. 11, 1944, Timothy Alfred Whalley B.S. ’67 was the son of Samuel and Marie (Bulger) Whalley, and the fifth of six children. An inspiration to those who knew him, he served as a lieutenant in the Navy (1967­–1972), earning the Navy Commendation medal while serving in Vietnam. He continued to serve his country in the Department of Defense until his retirement. His accomplishments as an aviator and instructor, nuclear engineer, coach, husband, father, grandfather, lifelong athlete and Senior Olympian provided a shining example of self-actualization that gives us the strength to persevere in challenging times. Tim shared his lifelong enthusiasm for sports and personal excellence with his family and friends. He coached his son’s soccer team and his daughter’s softball and soccer teams, extended his love of bicycling into business, competition, and commuting, and competed in many foot and bicycle races, including the Senior Olympics in St. George, Utah, where he won numerous medals between 1996 and 2018. Tim left us on April 22, 2019, at Renown Hospital in Reno, Nevada. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Marcia (Paul), son Robert, daughter Jennifer, grandson Timmy, and many nieces and nephews.
