Timothy Allen "TJ" Korzun Jr., 32, of Morgantown, died unexpectedly Friday (July 15, 2016) at home.
TJ was born on Sep. 4, 1983, in Morgantown, son of Timothy Allen Korzun and Elaine Drake Korzun. TJ was a proud employee of Judi's, where he worked tirelessly as the manager of the University Town Centre operation. This was a perfect fit for TJ, as he loved when it snowed so he could use his plow. TJ was an avid lover of the outdoors and especially enjoyed mowing grass, something that he inherited from his Pap, Dude. TJ had recently developed quite a green thumb, surrounding his home with many beautiful plants and flowers. TJ loved his family more than anything in this world, and was constantly looking after his grandmother and younger cousins. TJ loved and missed his younger brother, Matthew, terribly and has now been reunited with him in heaven.
TJ is survived by his mother, Elaine Drake Korzun (Jim Jacobs); and father, Timothy Allen Korzun; his maternal grandmother, Beulah Drake; and paternal grandfather, Jack (Shirley) Korzun; uncles, Steve (Andrea) Drake, Doug (Pam) Korzun and Wayne (Kelly) Korzun; his aunts, Kim (Rich) Glass, Valerie Lopez, Belinda (Barney) Cornett, and Doreen (Carl) Neely; his cousins, Samuel (Stacie) Lopez II (their newborn son Samuel Lopez III), Marissa (Ed) Parker, Brittany (Derrick) Martin, Madeline, Trevor and Lylah Glass, Neil and Kevin Korzun, Ciara, CJ, and Colby Neely, Jonathan Cornett, Courtney and Corey Korzun. Also surviving are his employers, Brian and Judi Murray, whom he thought of as family.
TJ was preceded in death by his great-grandmother, Elvina Panrell; his maternal grandfather, Gale Eugene "Dude" Drake; paternal grandmother, Sarah Korzun; his uncle, Samuel Joseph Lopez; his brother, Matthew Scott Korzun; and his beloved boxer, Bella.
Family and friends will be received from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. today at McCulla Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Mount Morris Gospel Tabernacle with Pastor Fred Tomlinson officiating. TJ will be laid to rest beside of his brother, Matthew, immediately following the service at Olive Cemetery.
