Timothy Brian DuBois made his final journey home to be with Our Lord and Savior on October 22, 2021 at the young age of 35. He was born on May 28, 1986 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to his parents Kimberly DuBois and Raymond Sullivan.
Tim grew up and attended school in Guthrie, Oklahoma. He was a Special Olympics athlete and enjoyed competing in the Olympic games every year with his fellow teammates. He was chosen Special Olympics Athlete of the Year in 2005. In 2006 he was recognized in Iowa as one of the top National Special Olympics Athletes. Timothy was also a basketball and football player for Guthrie. He was part of the Guthrie Blue Jays football team when they won the State Championship in 2002. After graduating high school in 2005, he became a volunteer coach and continued to help support the Special Olympics Athletes alongside his longtime teachers and friends Mrs. Laura Benham, Mr. Jeff Cowan and many other teachers he had become good friends with while helping with the athletes at the Special Olympics Games for many years. He also worked at the Bradford Village kitchen for 8 years and worked in boxing at Kim Ray for 2 years.
Tim was known to family and friends as “Big T”. He had a special love for Blue Jay sports. Most of the time he could be found at the basketball and football games cheering on his Blue Jays. Tim also had a huge love for OU Football. He always looked forward to throwing a big party every year for the Red River Rivalry and Bedlam games. He would often be seen driving through town with his OU flags flying high and blasting Boomer Sooner on his stereo.
Tim’s life was centered around his son Mason, his soulmate Madison and his family. Tim always enjoyed attending special programs and sporting events to cheer on and support his nieces and nephew. His love for his family was unconditional.
Tim accepted Christ Jesus as his Lord and Savior and was grateful for each new day he was given upon this earth. He had a “Heart of Gold” and was always willing to extend a helping hand to anyone he could if able, never wanting anything in return. He was a “Gentle Giant” and a kind soul. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
