Timothy Alfred Wise

It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to Timothy Alfred Wise, 56, devoted husband and father. Tim was born on Jan. 13, 1963, in San Jose and passed away on Nov. 9, 2019, at UC San Francisco Hospital after a courageous year-long battle with cancer. 

Tim was loving husband to Beth McMahon-Wise, and caring dad and papa to Jacob Wise and Brooke Tyler, all of Alameda. His faithful four-legged companions, Jazzy and Biscuit, will miss him, too. 

Also survived by sisters, Cindra Lee and Mivy Johnston, mother-in-law Christine McMahon and brother-in-law Gregory McMahon along with many loving nieces, nephews and friends. 
Tim was predeceased by his parents, Alfred and Mivy Wise; brother Terry Wise and father-in-law Michael McMahon. 

Tim was employed by Meyers Sound in Berkeley for 24 years and also will be missed by his Meyers Sound family. 

Tim loved fishing, boating, traveling and photography. He was a fabulous cook and grill master who loved to entertain family and friends. A sports enthusiast, he was a devoted Giants fan and was thrilled with the World Series wins. 

A celebration of his life is scheduled for this Saturday, Nov. 30, at 1 p.m. at the Rock Wall Winery Barrel Room, 2301 Monarch St. 

Please dress in bright colors to remember the often attired “tie-dyed” Tim. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to the Berkeley Humane Society, 2700 Ninth St., Berkeley, CA 94710 or the American Red Cross, 1663 Market St., San Francisco, CA 94103 are appreciated.
