Kersens, Timothy Joseph -
Manchester - Timothy Joseph Kersens, age 78, of Manchester, TN, and formerly of St. Louis, MO, passed from this life on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.
Tim was a St. Louis native, where he attended St Luke’s Elementary, McBride and CBC high schools. As a young man, he served in the National Guard and worked at DeMert & Daugherty before starting his own business as a hardware distributor. As a small business owner, he was a natural born salesman because he loved to socialize with friends and family. He was also an excellent salesman because his customers were confident in his extensive knowledge of his products. They knew he was invested in providing them with the best products and service in the industry. Everyone he met knew him as a very friendly, caring, and generous individual.
Timothy is preceded in death by his parents, Gay and Bernadine Kersens; and his sister, Mary Gay Pelchman and brother-in-law Anthony Pelchman. He is survived by one brother, Paul Kersens (Sandra Haas) of St. Louis, one sister, Eileen Kerr (David Kerr) of Fairfax, VA, and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.
No services are scheduled at this time.
Services will be in St. Louis, MO at a later date when the Covid-19 pandemic subsides.
Manchester Funeral Home is honored to serve the Kersens family.
