Tim was a resident of Shreveport and graduated from Woodlawn High School in 1969. He began his retail career in 1967 at A&P Grocery Stores, moving into management at Albertson’s Grocery Store, Phar-Mor Drug Store, and Office Depot. He was a diehard LSU Tigers fan and enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys. He liked woodworking and spending time in his shop. Tim’s most memorable trait was his laughter. He loved laughing and making others laugh. He adored his grandchildren and spending time with them. Tim was ready to see those who had gone to Heaven before him and especially looked forward to seeing his sister, Myrna.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Mary Beth Gentry Touchstone; daughter, Amanda (Mandy) Touchstone Sullivan and husband, Jason; son, Jason M. Touchstone; sister, Judy Touchstone Graves and husband, Morris; brother, W. Joseph Touchstone, M.D. and partner, Steve; grandchildren, Jackson Touchstone, Anna Kate Sullivan, and Evan Touchstone, along with his nieces and nephews.
