On August 23, 2011, family, friends, and the grateful community of Duxbury, Massachusets, lost a True American Hero when U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant Timothy J. Steele gave his life in combat while serving his beloved county in Afghanistan.
Tim was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division out of Fort Drum N.Y. He was a 2009 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Tim’s military awards and recognitions are numerous and distinguished.
Tim was a member of Duxbury High School’s Class of 2004 where he excelled as both a student and athlete, but most impressively as a role model and leader for those around him. He was president of his senior class and captain of the track team where he carried the Stars and Stripes in his last track meet as a sign of his commitment and love for his country.
Those serving under Lt Steele in the U.S. Army remember him as a born leader whose command they followed with unquestioned loyalty and respect.
Please join family, friends, and others in paying tribute to Tim as the Holy Family Knights of Columbus in cooperation with the Holy Family Women’s Club sponsors The Lieutenant Timothy Steele Memorial Golf Tournament on Saturday, May 12th. The tournament and following reception will be hosted through the generosity of the Duxbury Yacht Club and Holy Family Parish. It is extremely important to preserve the memory and accomplishments of Lieutenant Steele, who like too many before him, made the ultimate sacrifice for his country.
Your support for this event will send a lasting message to Tim’s wife Meaghan and daughter Liberty Hope, his parents Jack and Maryellen, siblings, and other loved ones that Lieutenant Tim Steele will never be forgotten by the residents of Duxbury.
Whether you had the honor to personally know Tim and his loving family or like many of us who have since learned of his character and strength, we invite and encourage you to support this worthy cause.
One-hundred percent of net proceeds shall be distributed to the Steele Family in preserving the legacy of Lieutenant Timothy J. Steele. All donations received are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
