McBrien, Timothy J. January 7, 1978 - October 13, 2020

Timothy J. McBrien, formerly of Bronxville, passed away on October 13, 2020 at the age of 42. Beloved son of Joseph and the late Katie McBrien, dear brother of Jennifer (Stephen) Dunn, James and Molly (Nick) Pizzola, loving father of Shannon and Ciara McBrien, former husband of Rosemary McBrien, devoted uncle to Jack, Declan, Michael, Paloma and Nico and a loyal friend to many.

Tim was a talented self-taught musician who made even Jefferson Airplane sound like Eddie Vedder. Always quick with a joke or a retort, he knew how to lighten the mood and to get you to crack a smile. A man who preferred the tranquility of nature to the roar of the city, Tim was happiest on a hiking trial with his dog beside him. A skilled chef, he put Emeril to shame. A true warrior, Tim never stopped fighting. He will be greatly missed.
