Sergeant Timothy R. Annesi Jr., 34, of Norwich, passed away unexpectedly after complications from a chronic illness on Sunday, March 17, 2019, into the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Born on April 2, 1984, in Norwich, Tim was the beloved son of Patricia (Cleveland) Carpenter and Timothy R. Annesi Sr. He was a graduate of Norwich High School with the Class of 2003. Tim completed his studies at the police academy, and served with the City of Norwich Police Department with distinction for 13 years.

He was also a member of the First Baptist Church of New Berlin and a member and chapter president of the Central New York Gunfighters Motorcycle Club. Tim was a gun enthusiast and die-hard Buffalo Bills fan. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and grandson.

Tim was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Dominic “Dusty” and Barbara Annesi, and maternal grandfather Floyd “Bill” Cleveland, as well as several uncles and cousins on both sides of his family.
