Timothy J. Rutledge, age 74, of Indianapolis, IN passed away on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 in Indianapolis after an extended illness. Tim was born in Phenix City, AL on February 4, 1946. He was the son of Mack and Leola Rutledge (nee Tarver).
For over 3 decades, Tim was employed at General Devices Electronic Hardware Manufacturing in Indianapolis. After his retirement, Tim enjoyed watching college and professional sports. His favorite teams were the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers and the University of Alabama football and basketball teams. Tim was Steve Harvey’s number one fan. Back in the day if Tim wasn’t at work you would find him at the ticket house or playing poker all night with his wife and friends. Tim liked to dance to every beat and wouldn’t be caught without the smell of his cologne on.
