Timothy George Hallock passed into eternity last week at the age of 54 doing what he loved, winter mountaineering.
Born June 17, 1961 in Huntington, Tim’s life journey as a sea captain and a mountain guide (trail name, “Yeti”) took him to some of the nation’s highest mountain peaks as well as on voyages logging over a million miles as a licensed Ship’s Officer on any tonnage vessel on all oceans.
Tim graduated Southold High School and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. In the recent past, he served as president of New York State Outdoor Guides Association. Tim was passionate about many things, mostly God’s creation and our place in it, and family.
Tim was the beloved son of Sue Hallock and Dan Hallock; the cherished brother of Dan (Emily), Jen, Matt, Charles (Cara), and Susan; and the doting, encouraging and generous-hearted uncle of Julianne, Justin, Sarah, Matty, Angie, Brian, Zach, Desirae, Stephen, Danny, Maeryn and Hannah; he was also blessed with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was a devoted friend and acquaintance to many others as he worked, played and lived life to the fullest. Tim’s motto was “LIVE LIFE LIKE YOU MEAN IT.” Tim’s recent experiences are chronicled on his website, northeastmountainguides.com, and two Facebook pages HALLOCK’S MARINE SERVICES and NORTHEAST MOUNTAIN GUIDES.
The family will receive visitors at Coster-Heppner Funeral Home, Cutchogue, N.Y. on Friday, March 4t from 6 to 9 p.m. and again on Saturday, March 5 at 10 a.m. with burial following at Laurel Cemetery.
