Obituary of Timothy "Tim" William Addington

Timothy “Tim” William Addington passed away on Thursday, July 30, 2020 from complications related to Alzheimer's Disease. Tim was 64 years old. He was the son of the late Bryan and Muriel Addington of Northampton, England. Tim spent his childhood and teenage years in Northampton and graduated from Nottingham University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Geology. Tim began his career just outside of London in the oil and gas industry as a geophysicist. After 2 years working in West Africa, Tim immigrated to Houston, Texas, to continue his career. Tim met his wife, the former Betty Mikell of Kosciusko, Mississippi, in Houston Texas. They were married for over 37 years. Tim spent over 30 years in the oil and gas business with a career as an exploration geophysicist. He and Betty lived a short while in Dallas and Tulsa before their move in the late 80s to Mandeville, Louisiana, where they spent almost 20 years. Tim had many friends in New Orleans where he enjoyed the food and his work downtown. In 2008, Tim got the inevitable news to move back to Houston. The career that he loved ended there due to Alzheimer's Disease. He and Betty moved to Madison Mississippi, in early 2015 where he spent his last years. Tim is survived by his wife Betty of Houston, Texas, and his two children, Phillip Addington and Alexandra Wagner (Andrew) and granddaughter Caroline Wagner all of Houston, Texas. He is also survived by his sister, Sue Shurville (Keith) of Northampton, England and her daughters. Tim was an avid gardener and car enthusiast and loved traveling. His favorite spots included trips to Norway, Egypt and Perth, Australia. Tim loved family vacations to the mountains and the beach but his best memories were spent taking his family back to show them his favorite places in England. His family would like to thank his friend and caregiver, Jeff, for all of his help along with the staff of Sharkey Issaquena Nursing Home and Dr. Andrew George. Funeral arrangements will be private. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, please support your local Alzheimers Association to help bring awareness and funding to help find a cure for this disease.
