Timothy Rutledge

Sunday, October 23rd, 1955 - Thursday, November 12th, 2020


Tim “Elmo” Rutledge, wonderful husband, father, and papa went to be with Jesus on November 12, 2020, at the age of 65. Tim was born in San Angelo, Tx, on October 23, 1955. Ray’s Transfer and High View Storage was the family owned and operated business where Tim dedicated 40 plus years of hard work. He worked with his father, brothers and would go on to eventually employ each of his own sons at Ray’s. He told many stories of how working with family was a blessing, as well as a curse. Elmo often used his place at Ray’s to give people in need a hand up. He was so generous, a “the glass is half full” kind of man, who had a heart of gold that looked for the good in everyone.
As a boy Tim loved to play baseball. It was on the field where his brother had given him the name “Tiny Hiney”. Tim was not particularly fond of the name although it was quite fitting. You see, Elmo suffered from “NO ASS AT ALL” every day of his life.
Tim, AKA Papa, loved to see his grandchildren smile. He had a smile of his own that radiated the light of his spirit and the love in his heart. My goodness, what a beautiful smile our Papa had. He loved to have a good time! Riding motorcycles and listening to rock and roll music were his favorite things to do, in good company. Tim loved putting miles on his bike with his many treasured friends from Biker Church; experiencing brotherly love and companionship, while “chasing that wind therapy!”
Timothy Paul Rutledge was preceded by two stellar parents, John and Gerry Rutledge, as well as his brother Ronald “Butch” Rutledge. He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Rutledge, John Wayne and Ginny Rutledge, Jeff Rutledge, Mike and Donna Rutledge, Mary Rutledge, and Teri Covert. Tim was also survived by his children Brandon and Rhonda Rutledge, Tori Leigh and Jeremy Miller, Matthew Rutledge, Rozz and Cat Covert, Christopher Rutledge, ZZackRay Olyer, 15 beautiful grandchildren, and his close friends Mark and Terri Hudman, as well as Russ and Leigh Frasier.
We will be celebrating the honor of knowing and loving Tim on November 21, 2020 at 11:00 am. The service will be held at Forgiven Ministry Biker Church, located at 2900 W. FM 2105, San Angelo, TX. We will also broadcast the service on Facebook live for those of you who can not make it in person. If you ride a bike, please join us in a bike procession to the Rutledge home for lunch. The family requests that donations be made to Hospice of San Angelo, rather than sending flowers.

To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of "Elmo", please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
