On October 19, 2022, Timmy departed this world and now resides in Heaven. His passing is one of great sadness that he is no longer here with his family and friends, enriching our lives through his special gifts of intuition, love and affection. While sad, it is also a great time of celebration as his challenging physical time on this earth has ended and he is made whole and perfect in Heaven. His impact on others is evidence by the many nicknames he was given – Little Buddy, Bucko, Richie, Ya Big Gabooch, Snickerdoodle, Timmo, Sweet Man & yes TIMOTHY MARK! Timmy also has a special bond with the many pets he has. We are all assured that he is reunited with these special creatures, family and friends who are waiting in Heaven to greet him.
Timmy was born February 17, 1965, in Green Bay, WI to Nicky & Arnie Plischke and their 5 older children- Pam, Bobbie, Steve, Scott and MaryKim. Born with Down Syndrome, he was not expected to live long but God kept him here on Earth for 57 years so he could spin his magic and enrich the lives of all who met him. Timmy relocated to Boise in 2005 and lived with MaryKim and her family until his passing. As his earthly life drew to a close many people rallied around him to meet his challenging physical demands. The family would like to acknowledge & give our gratitude to the wonderfully caring and professional support that St. Luke’s Hospice delivered to Tim and the family.
Timmy loves dressing up in his ties & vests for special occasions & “dates”. His favorite team is the Green Bay Packers. A person of habit, Timmy loves Saturdays with Lawrence Welk (“The Banjo Man”) on PBS. He is a jokester & a tickle monster! Always putting empty bowls of cereal or frisbees on his head or his sunglasses upside down on his face, saying “How I Look?” with a big laugh and grin. He loves to play practical jokes on all! He loves his “sodies” (soda), McDonalds treats, a fish burger on Fridays, and cherry pies. As a young boy he loved playing frisbee & he participated in track, bowling, & basketball in the Special Olympics. He loves his juke box with rock & roll music. He loves rocking chairs & counting all his coins in his various coin purses. An example of his humor, when opening birthday cards, he would exclaim, “Is it money or nothin’?”. At the end of his life, Timmy was left blind however he “sees” better than all of us with his Spiritual eyes and heart!
Timmy is preceded in death by his parents Nicky & Arnie Plischke, his brother-in-law (Randy Przybelski), several aunts & uncles, cousins and friends. He is survived by sisters Pam Przybelski (WI), Bobbie Hafer & husband David, MaryKim Allen & husband Brian (ID) and his brothers Steve Plischke (ID) and Scott Plischke (WI). He will also be lovingly remembered by the many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends that he left behind.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family would like to direct any remembrances you would like to make in Timmy’s honor to the Treasure Valley Down Syndrome Association at www.idahodownsyndrome.org or TBDSA, PO 1404, Meridian, ID 83680.
Bowman Funeral Parlor in Garden City is assisting the family and will host. An internment ceremony will be attended by his Wisconsin siblings and cousins at the Fort Howard Mortuary (WI) at a later date where his final resting place is with his parents, Nicky & Arnie.
