Of Penn Hills, age 43, passed away on Sunday, January 6, 2019 after a long-fought battle with cancer.  He was preceded in death by Angie Diano.  He is survived by his daughter Brianna McVeigh, parents Jim and Lynn (Motzko) McVeigh, brother James J. (JoAnn) McVeigh, nephews Adam & Brock McVeigh,  his aunt Sharon Motzko (Garvis) Martin, his uncles Jeff (Srinivas) McVeigh, Jack (Elaine) McVeigh and his cousins. Tim's extended family includes Angie's parents John (Debbie) Diano, Kate (Frank) Tedesco, Mike (Michele), Frank & Jen Diano.

Tim loved all the Pittsburgh sports teams especially the Steelers and had a love a music. But of all the things in his life, his greatest joy was raising his daughter Brianna.  He enjoyed sharing stories of his nephews Adam and Brock and all the Diano children Angeline, Pia, Anthony, Bailey, Brandon, Frankie, Addie, Sara, Logan and Alyssa.  Knowing his daughter's friend Brian Lucas is there for her with comfort and moral support put his mind at ease.  Over years of the many different diagnoses and hospital stays he loved to use social media. He was able to stay connected with all of his friends who kept him going with all of their love and words of encouragement that helped him keep up the fight.

Cancer does not discriminate when it comes into your life.  It does not care that it causes you pain, hurts the people that you love, takes away your hopes and dreams.  Cancer met its match in Tim.  He was a courageous warrior, he accepted the multiple diagnoses that came year after year and through love, sheer stubbornness and determination kept going.  In the end it is cancer that lost the battle with Tim, because with God on his side, he is back in the arms of his one true love. Together they will be looking over from above on their daughter knowing their families are there to help raise and guide her. 

Friends are welcome on Wednesday from 2-8pm at Patrick T. Lanigan Funeral Home and Crematory Inc; 700 Linden Ave. at Cable; East Pittsburgh, 412-824-8800 where a Blessing Service will be held on Wednesday at 7:30 pm.

To the family and friends of Timothy. Words cannot express how truly sorry I am for your loss. Nothing can prepare us for the pain that comes from losing a loved one. The Bible tells us of a time when “no one will say ‘I am sick’”(Isaiah 33:24). Please know that the “God of all comfort “(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) sees your pain and longs to do something about it. We have a wonderful hope for the future at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29. May your precious memories give you strength and comfort during this very difficult time.
