SCHELL, Timothy Robert



Unexpectedly on Manitoulin Island on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at the age of 42. Tim was born in Sault Ste Marie to Bob and Mandy Schell on January 8th, 1978.  He is survived by his wife Rochelle and his children Jimmy (aka Kiddo) and Lorelai (aka Goobie). Survived by his parents Bob and Mandy Schell, his sister Krystle Plastino (Michael), his Nono and Nona, Gianni and Anna Fronzi, multiple nieces and nephews, including Mikey, Frankie, Gordie, and his brothers, the Shawn’s, and all that loved him.
Tim is preceded in death by his grandparents, Gordon and Clara Schell, as well as John and Pauline Schell, Ed Taraborrelli, and Marlene Diamantini. Tim graduated from Korah Collegiate and married his best friend and soulmate, Rochelle Larocque, aka Buggy on August 10, 2018 in Sault Ste Marie. He rocked it as an installation expert for multiple cable, satellite, and internet companies for thirteen years. He was a veteran of living with Rochelle and surviving her for seventeen years, and a dedicated short stop, all pun intended, for the Psychos Baseball Team, not including other various men’s leagues. He was involved in anything and everything Ford, loved blaring his country music, skidoo rides with the boys, and revving his engine. Tim will always be remembered for his zest for living life to the fullest, a smile that reached his ears, a laugh that was contagious, and a heavy foot that always announced his arrival. His kind heart, and loving nature, not only towards his family and closest friends, was felt by all who were lucky enough to cross his path.  A Come and Go for Tim will be held on Saturday October 31, 2020 at Shooters Downstairs Lounge (68 Dennis St) from 12-4pm. Please remember social distancing and to wear a mask. Tim’s family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Doctor Sebastian, Doctor McRae, and the paramedics and staff of Mindemoya Hospital. Special thanks to the family on the scene who responded quickly and to all their efforts to try to save his life. Donations can be made in trust for Tim’s Bits; Jimmy and Lorelai, in care of Nikki Lapish at
