Mr. Gable passed away Friday, Sept. 11, 2020, at his residence.

Born Feb. 5, 1963, in Gainesville, he was the son of the late James William and Mary Elizabeth Ballard Gable. 

Tim was known by the nickname "Sweet T" by many friends he worked alongside at Ethicon during his tenure there. Tim loved music and excelled during his high school years playing the trumpet. He was the section leader and was firm, but always took anytime needed to instruct the younger and less experienced players.

He was an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves as well as the Atlanta Falcons and enjoyed cheering on his favorite teams during their highs and lows. He was also an avid Georgia Bulldog fan.

Survivors include, sister and brother-in-law, Jan Gable (Phil) Wofford of Gainesville; brothers and sister-in-law, Larry Gable, John Dunavent of Palm Springs, California, and the Rev. Randall (Tina) Gable of Cumming; nieces, Richelle Martinez and Chasity Brown; nephew, Dustin Gable; five great-nieces and one great-nephew, Daisy Martinez, Megan Martinez, Amelia and Adalyne Brown, and Maelee and Garrison Gable.

The family will receive friends from 4 until 6 p.m. Thursday Sept. 17, at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be made to the local foodbank in memory of Tim.
