Interment will follow at Paradise Memorial Cemetery in Brazoria, Texas.

Timothy Grovey III (Tim) was born on August 22, 1978, the handsome and beloved son of Jessie Jean Helm and the late Timothy Grovey Jr. He was a radiant young man who loved life and the people in it.

As a young child, he surrendered his heart to the Lord and was baptized at the Magnolia Baptist Church under Bishop Edmond Baker Sr. In his teen years, he united with the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church and grew in the nurture and admonition of God under the pastoral leadership of the Rev. Larry D. Griggs Sr.

Tim was formally educated in the Sweeny Independent School District, where he was well-known for his athletic talents. While he endeavored in football, track and baseball, his true passion was basketball. With commanding style and grace, his ability to skillfully maneuver up and down the hardwood earned him several athletic scholarships. After his graduation from Sweeny High School in May 1997, he used these awards to further manifest his love of the game at the collegiate level. Tim showcased his skills at Grayson County College in Denison, Texas; Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, TX; and at Murray State College in Tishimingo, Oklahoma. He continued his devotion to his pastime by playing in celebrity games, tournaments and pick-up games as often as he could.

On Sunday, December 9, 2007, a new chapter in Tim’s life began as he traded the cares and worries of this life for eternal rest. A lasting imprint forever will be left on the hearts and lives of the many persons whose paths he crossed with his exuberant, cheery personality and charismatic smile.

Timothy leaves to celebrate the memory of his life a devoted, caring mother, Jessie Jean Helm of Van Vleck, Texas; two loving grandmothers, Ermer Lee Grovey of Sweeny, Texas, and Nettie Lee Helm of Brazoria, Texas; one daughter, Coryn G. Grovey of Temple, Texas; two sisters, Senecia Saveat (Rodney) of Beaumont, Texas, and Charmin Simien (Tracy) of Pearland, Texas; three nieces, Jasmine Wright, Trasee Simien and C’Tena Simien, all of Pearland, Texas; three nephews, Derek R.

Helm Jr. (Lucille) of Lake Jackson, Texas; special cousin, Wendell Guerin of Houston, Texas; four great aunts, one great uncle and a host of other relatives and friends.

Billy was an outdoorsman who loved to fish and hunt. He and Charlene also have wonderful memories of their Wagon Train days in Texas and Wyoming.
