Timothy Hays Vollmer
On Thursday, March 2, 2018 Tim Vollmer of Baltimore, formerly of Sanibel Island, Florida. Beloved son of William and Mary (nee Hays) Vollmer; dear brother of Jeff Vollmer and his wife Shannon; devoted grandson of Julia K. Hays; loving uncle of Will, Lila, and Jack Vollmer; cherished nephew of Thomas A. Hays VI.
Tim grew up on Sanibel Island where he played little league and other youth sports, enjoyed Summer Rec, and spent time fishing and canoeing with his family. He attended Sanibel Elementary School and the Canterbury School in Ft. Myers before graduating from the Eaglebrook School in Deerfield, Massachusetts. At Eaglebrook, Tim excelled at snowboarding and was a member of the school’s competitive snowboarding team. He also learned how to create stained glass. After he graduated from Eaglebrook, Tim attended The Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. At Lawrenceville, Tim played football, wrestled, and served as President of his dormitory (Kinnan) during his senior year. Tim graduated from Lawrenceville in 2000 and matriculated at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. At Ithaca, Tim majored in English and continued to develop his lifelong love of reading and writing.
After he graduated from Ithaca in 2005, Tim’s life led him to a wide range of experiences in different corners of this country. He lived on Sanibel, where he became part of the Lazy Flamingo family and developed a passion for wakeboarding. Tim lived in Tucson, Arizona, where he studied the art of jujutsu at Martial Arts of Tucson and earned the nickname Blood from his friends. Most recently, Tim lived in Baltimore, Maryland, where he was born. There, he became part of the Petit Louis Bistro family, and continued to pursue his athletic interests at Crossfit Arenal. Over the years, he also spent time with his family in Bethany Beach, Delaware, and joined his brother for adventures in fishing, camping, golfing, and Guns N’ Roses concerts.
Tim loved dogs, movies, books, music, and games. He taught himself to play acoustic guitar and never stopped writing creatively. He will be missed.
