Obituary Image


Timothy Sweeney, age 46, of Beckley, WV, and formerly of West Milford, NJ went to heaven in December 2021. 


Tim was born in New Jersey, the fourth of five children of parents Anne O’Leary Sweeney and Thomas Sweeney. He moved to West Virginia to attend Concord College, where he met his former wife Kelly Snuffer Bailey, with whom he had two children. Tim fell in love with the beauty of West Virginia, and was proud to become a part of the coal mining industry that drives our nation. 


Tim is survived by his parents Anne and Thomas Sweeney of Currituck, NC, and his daughters Kaitlyn and Teagan Sweeney of Beckley. He is also survived by his siblings and their spouses, Brendan Sweeney, Kelly and Robert Beverly, Bridget and David Blank, Shannon and Justin Offen, his nieces and nephews Liam, Gavin, Robert, Sidney, Colin, Brendan, Finley, Griffin, and Teddy. 


Tim had a kind heart and a big laugh. He was an outdoorsman with the mind of an engineer. He loved to golf, and fish, and in his younger days he was a natural athlete and ice-skater. He was a beloved son, father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and a dear friend, and he will be terribly missed.
