Timothy Hallmark, a long-time University of Dallas Facilities employee, passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 28 after a long battle with cancer. He was 55 years old.
Hallmark worked as UD’s locksmith for nearly 16 years. The Facilities Services Administrator, Steve Serna, remarked that he was “one of the most honest and capable Facilities technicians I have had the pleasure of working with over … the years.”
Hallmark’s fellow employees expressed great sadness over Hallmark’s passing. Serna commented that he “always displayed an upbeat and energetic attitude and was constantly helping others.”
Gary Barnes, the Facilities mechanic, called Hallmark “a compassionate, caring young man … [who] had so many friends that cared for him.”
Hallmark took great pleasure in music and was an accomplished musician. Serna remarked that “he loved rock n’ roll and had a garage band” in which he was actively involved.
Hallmark was also well-versed in American Sign Language, a skill which enabled him to easily communicate with his deaf mother.
Hallmark is survived by his beloved wife, Annie, and his stepchildren.
As Barnes said, Hallmark “will be sorely missed.”
