Timothy G. “Tim” McLaughlin, 71, of Lebanon, died Saturday April 4, 2020 at Cedar Haven. He was the loving husband of Ginny Lewis-McLaughlin.
Born in Lebanon on April 7, 1948, he was the son of the late Earl and Christine (Rudegeair) McLaughlin. Tim graduated from Cedar Crest High School with the class of 1967. He was an electrician for over 50 years affiliated with IBEW Local Union 143. Tim was proud of his family and Irish heritage. His interests were sports, traveling and eating; there was not a cooked meal that he did not savor. Tim played semi-pro football with the Lebanon Rams and the Schuylkill County Coal Crackers. He had the pleasure of coaching his three sons with the CQM youth football team. Tim was also a former assistant chief at Mt. Gretna Volunteer Fire Company.
