Beating It: The Story


In May 2014 Tim started his two year battle with cancer. Check out his version of the story here.
 

Beating It Blog

Tim was a lifelong Mainer, business and community leader, proud father, and loving husband. Born and bred in the Kennebunks, Tim attended Kennebunk High School, went on to graduate from Colby College, and later received his MBA from Cornell University. 

For nearly 40 years, Tim dedicated his career to Hussey Seating Company in North Berwick, a family business since 1835 with six generations of family leadership. For 21 years, Tim led and grew the company while maintaining its longstanding values of honesty, integrity, and caring for the people they work with.

Tim's commitment to his community was equally as strong, and he was tireless in his support of numerous organizations and causes.

In addition to his family's longstanding support for the United Way of York County, Tim was the chair of Educate Maine and a board member of RSU 21 School District in Kennebunk. He also served on the Maine Development Foundation, the Maine Economic Growth Council, and the Davis Family Foundation. He was also a member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) and the World Presidents Organization and attended South Congregational Church in Kennebunkport. 

Tim and his wife of 27 years, Marcia Landry, raised three children - Hannah, Philip, and Olivia - and cultivated close ties with their extended family and wider community. He found great joy in traveling to new places, skiing on the slopes of Sugarloaf, and sailing Maine's spectacular coast.

LEADERSHIP.

Interested in community

Vision, communication, balance, and relationships - these were core components of leadership for Tim. He manifested these qualities throughout his life by listening and acting with authenticity. Tim's brand of leadership is more than a set of personal characteristics - it is a deep commitment to giving back and consistently doing the right thing. 

 

EDUCATION.

Passionate about potential 

The power of education as a tool to improve the lives of young people drove much of Tim's community involvement. Opening doors to new perspectives and ways of living was a lifelong project for Tim. Whether meeting with policymakers or guest lecturing to fourth graders, Tim knew that each person has the ability to achieve greatness and was determined to help each person he met unlock it. 

PERSEVERANCE.

Resolution in adversity

Play the cards you are dealt - that was Tim's philosophy. He carried that attitude throughout the two years he spent living life to the fullest in the face of a difficult cancer diagnosis. Tim's legacy lives on his ability to inspire others to look inward, engage outward, and continue forward. This was never more true than in his willingness to share his journey with cancer to help others discover their personal strength.
