Timothy Michael McFadden was born May 27, 1950, in Bismarck, ND, to Kenneth McFadden and Violet (Holden) Lowery. He was raised in Casper, WY, and graduated from Kelly Walsh High School.
After graduation, Tim proudly served in the U.S. Navy until being honorably discharged in 1971 following a motorcycle accident.
On April 15, 1972, he married Nancy Nolan in Casper. The couple and their infant son moved to Riverton in 1975, and a daughter joined the family in 1977. Tim worked for Northern Utilities until 1980 when he started Badger, Inc., an oilfield roustabout service that would operate in the Beaver Creek Oil Field until Tim and partner Pete Peterson retired in 2014. He was respected as a fair and knowledgeable man whose work ethic was beyond reproach.
Tim enjoyed shooting pool, fishing, and hunting, and he took pride in working on projects to improve his family’s home and property. Time spent there with his loving wife Nancy and their dog Hot Shot brought him happiness. The company of friends and family was important to Tim, and he was especially proud of his six grandchildren. He was a kind and genuine soul who truly never knew a stranger.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy; mother, Violet Lowery of Dallas, TX; sister, Connie Neal, and brother-in-law, Randy Neal, of Dallas, TX; son, Chase McFadden and wife Stacie of Sheridan; daughter Cebee Richardson and husband Tracy of Laramie; niece, Kindie Chinn, of Hillsboro, OR; niece Wendy Huffman and husband Steve of Corsicana, TX; grandsons Nolan, Reed and Finn McFadden, and Timothy Ray (TR) and Calvin Richardson; and granddaughter Kyndal McFadden.
He was preceded in death by his father.
