Timothy D. “Nimmer” Regan 1959 – 2020

LITTLE FALLS: Mr. Timothy D. “Nimmer” Regan of Little Falls passed away on Tuesday, January 7, 2019.

He was born on July 19, 1959, in Little Falls, NY a son of the late James H. and Mary L. (Dorcy) Regan. Tim was a proud alumnus of St. Mary’s Academy and a member of the Little Falls High School Class of 1977. Tim worked at various places in his lifetime, including Colortyme in Rome, NY and most recently LaSalle Labs in Little Falls. He enjoyed fishing, sports, concerts and generally enjoyed life to the fullest, but he enjoyed nothing more so than the time he shared with his son Timothy James Regan (T.J.).

As a youth playing CYO basketball, Tim will always be remembered by both his friends and competitors as an unbelievably skilled basketball player who could shoot the lights out and dribble circles around the best of defenders. While off the court in those days he loved doing his favorite trick (one of many), spinning the basketball on his fingers behind his head while switching fingers and hands.

Tim was very proud of his Irish heritage, always had a big smile or wave and of course a loud (actually very loud) shout out to his many friends. Over the years Tim’s outgoing and big-hearted personality enabled him to establish hundreds of friends across every generation, social class, gender, and race if you met him you wanted to be his friend and he wanted to be yours.

Tim’s survivors include his son Timothy James Regan and his mother Lyn, his brothers: James T. Regan and wife Geraldine of Cicero, NY; William M. Regan and fiancé Angela of Lawrenceville, PA; Patrick E. Regan and wife Penny of Newark, DE; Daniel R. Regan of Arlington, TX; Martin R. Regan and wife Melinda of Little Falls; several cherished nieces and nephews all of which were dear to his heart, many cousins and his two aunts: Marion Regan and Carol McDonough. He was predeceased by his parents, his brothers Dennis G. Regan, an infant brother Francis J. Regan, many aunts and uncles and friends.

The Regan family would like to thank the Little Falls Police and Fire Departments, Chief Parese and the other departments and first responders that were called in to assist. A special thank you to Mayor Mark Blask, Police Chief Ron Petrie and Coroner Vincent Enea, all friends and true professionals.
