Michael “Tim” Eickel Obituary

Tim, age 83, of Grove City, passed away peacefully on January 9, 2024, with his family by his side. He was born on July 27, 1940 in Corning, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his wife, Judy Mae Eickel (Jones) of 51 years; parents, Henry and Julia Eickel; four sisters; four brothers-in-law; mother and father-in-law, Lawrence and Julia Jones.

He is survived by his children Jennifer Eickel (Rick Weaver); Michael Jay and Tammy Eickel, and James Eickel; grandchildren, Lindsey (Blake) Pauley, Avery (Holly) Eickel, Ava Eickel (Austin Jarvis); great grandchildren, Arleigh and Sophia Eickel, and Emerson Pauley; his dear companion of 10 years, Sally Dean with whom he cared deeply. Also many nieces and nephews and their children.

Tim enjoyed his time on the railroad. In the early years, his children enjoyed short rides on the caboose, when his train would pull into Corning, Ohio. During the summer months, you could find Tim and his wife (Judy) at the race track cheering on both sons in motocross racing. They were very involved in the District 11 Moto-X circuit. Tim was also an avid hunter and fisher where he would spend time with his Uncle George on trips to Canada and deer hunting with his nephew, Mitch. He was a lifelong Boston Red Socks and Buckeye fan. Tim looked forward to spending time with his family especially around the Holidays. He will be greatly missed.
