Tim Cravens, age 66, passed away in the early morning of Friday, October 7th in Trauma ICU at The University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. He went peacefully into the arms of the Lord surrounded by his children Andy and Emily and the love of his life, their mother, Sharon Cravens.
Tim was a well-known local home builder in Lexington, KY where he was born and raised. His 45 years in construction include many homes in Copperfield, Andover, Meadow Creek, and Waterford, where he raised his family. Home Building was a trait passed down to him by his Father Kenneth Cravens who preceded him in death along with his mother, Mary Cravens.
Tim lived life in the fast lane as sung by his favorite band, The Eagles. Along with his love for classic rock, he also had a passion for fast cars and cool rides. His favorite of over 50 cars and trucks over the years was the 1982 Corvette. He also liked to vacation with his family in Daytona Beach, FL, and always went to the Daytona 500 along with many other NASCAR races.
Above all this, Tim is a follower of Jesus Christ. He loved the Lord and instilled his faith into his children's lives. He was a proud member of The Vineyard Church and always welcomed and greeted people at the door with his outgoing personality.
