‘Tim’ Hett

Graveside services for Timothy “Tim” Hett, 65, of Emporia, who peacefully passed away surrounded by his family Nov. 18, 2023, at Newman
Regional Health in Emporia, are planned for 10:30 a.m.
Saturday, Dec. 9, at Claney Cemetery.

A reception will follow at Aulne Bible Church.

Survivors include his parents, Jim and Carol Hett of Marion; special friend and significant other Collene McDonald of Emporia; sister Kimberly (and husband Mike) Metcalf of Kansas City, Kansas; sister-in-law Marannde Hett of Marion;
and daughter Amanda Parker of Coyle, Oklahoma.

Tim was preceded in death by his brother, James
Robert “Rob” Hett.

While working for the railroad, Tim severely injured his back, preventing him from enjoying a comfortable life.

He had a natural talent for fixing things, an actual MacGyver. He also was a talented flintknapper, making hundreds of arrowheads and such for others. He was so talented that he was able to fool the best experts with his work.
