Timothy Raymond Yount of Potosi, passed away on Monday, June 3, 2019 having reached sixty-three years of age. Tim was born on July 10, 1955 in St. Louis, a son to the late Ray O. and Lena L. (Evans) Yount. On May 27, 1978, Tim was united in marriage to Victoria Eye and four children were born unto this union.

In addition to his parents, Tim is preceded in death by his son, Seth Elijah Yount; sister, Paula Eye; special cousins, Jim Yount, Gary Yount and Mike Yount; and many other dear relatives.

Tim will be missed by all who knew and loved him including his beloved wife, Victoria “Vicki” Yount; three children, Timothy “Adam” (Beth) Yount, Noah Travis (Shanna) Yount; and Carah (Van) Watson; three sisters, Shelia Yount, Brenda (Randy) Swift and Robin (Chuck) Belfield; six grandchildren, Cyrus Gage Yount, Bernard J. “Ben” Stemmler, Kellen Duke Watson, Maddix Brandon Watson, Justin Falcon and Breanna Bye; dear nieces and nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, and his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Travis and Rachel Eye.

Mr. Timothy Raymond Yount was a retired hard rock miner from Washington County. He began his career with the St. Joe Lead Company, which was bought out by the Doe Run Company, where he would retire, 38 years later. He was adored by the miners who had the pleasure of working alongside him.

Above all Tim was a family man, he was a provider in every sense of the word. Though regimented, he could be quite whimsical, whether it be, converting the families hog farm to a motocross track with a bulldozer or driving cross country 3 or 4 times a year to Safford Arizona, just to relax at the foot of Mt. Graham with his wife Victoria and their Mexican neighbors. Tim had a broad scope of interests. He had a unique taste in music and was rumored to be a formidable guitar player and singer in his day. His interests of late included reading nonfiction/history-based literature, brewing, gardening and riding his grandchildren around on the tractor. He will always be remembered for his dry wit and sense of humor and of course his big heart.

Tim will be forever loved and sorely missed by so many.

Private services will be held at a later date. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to the care and direction of the DeClue Funeral Home.
