of Kenton

John Timothy "Tim" Anstine, age 72, of Kenton, died on Sunday, August 20, 2023, at Vancrest of Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Tim, as he was known, was born in Kenton, Ohio on October 1, 1950, to the late John M. and Joanne (Arn) Anstine. He married Sheryl (Smith) England July 1978, and she survives.

Tim is survived by his daughter, Triena (Roy) Miller of Mt. Cory, Stepson, Lance England of Troy, Ohio. Sisters: Leah (John) Moore and Jill (Tony)Adams both of Kenton.

Sister-in-Law, Linda Modd Anstine of Powell, Ohio. Cousins and great nieces and nephews survive.

His parents and a brother Daniel preceded him in death.

Tim was a 1968 graduate of Kenton High School. He retired from Durez in 2008 and a trip to Alaska to celebrate their retirement. Tim was so excited for fall time because of the football season, especially for the Cleveland Browns, a die-hard fan always and The Ohio State Buckeyes. Win or lose he cheered them on. Tim loved his rock and roll, especially the Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Cream, and many others. He could tell you who was in each band and their songs. He enjoyed reading about the Civil War and had a great knowledge of events. He loved woodworking but could no longer enjoy woodworking because of his strokes in 2009. Also, he liked to create bonsai with his jade plants. His favorite author was Stephen King .... anything he wrote. The scarier the better!
