Timothy Daniel Nolan, 75, of Lumberton, died Saturday, October 2, 2021, at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas, Beaumont. He was born July 4, 1946, to Mary Ruth Ulm and Norris John Nolan, Jr.

Tim was a loving husband, a wonderful father, a caring brother, and a faithful friend to all that knew him.

He was a humble, no frills, quiet man who touched many hearts with his kindness. He set an excellent example for his children and grandchildren on how to live a life built on love, family, and faith.

He is survived by his wife, Ermelinda Nolan, of Lumberton; daughter, Dana Peavey and her husband, Robert, of Lumberton; son, Dr. Norris Nolan, III, and his wife, Dr. Anna Maria Copeland, of Rockville, Maryland; Timothy Daniel Nolan, Jr. and his wife, Melissa, of Houston; daughter, Carita Nolan of Dallas; son, LT.

    Carita, Ermelinda, and all the sweet Nolan family,

    I am sending all my love and a big hug to each of you. Tim was such an amazing person, and I feel so lucky to have known him.

    He always had a big smile and adored his wife and kids so much. He gave great hugs and had a wonderful laugh.

    I am not quite sure of what to say. Tim and I were best friends during elementary and high school. We went to the St. Aloysius prom together. Played on the same NORD baseball team for years. Unfortunately, I was not always the friend Tim should have had. Shame on me.
    Tim was a great man, respected by all. May one day we will reunite, apologize and become best friends once again.
    Rest in Peace Tim.

    Tim was that “big brother” cousin that I always looked up to. His giant smile and welcoming personality always made me feel loved and special.

    Eternal rest grant upon him oh Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.

    My condolences go out to the entire family. You can count on my prayers.

    Much love,
