As a youngster, Tim loved sports and excelled in basketball. Tim played in grammar school at Beale Upper Grade Center, at Dunbar Vocational High School, and in college at the University of Arkansas, Pine Bluff. He was a star player and a "dangerous" power forward in several leagues in and around the Chicago area and was featured in a book about Chicago's street leagues. Tim moved to Nashville Tennessee in 1986 where he worked in construction as a carpenter, painter and brick mason. He was proud to tell folks that he worked on the new Nashville Convention Center and Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans. He also worked as a chef at Nissan Stadium. Tim worked hard in the revitalization of downtown Nashville saying "I'm the reason downtown Nashville looks so good." He also loved to fish! And he was not shy about posting about it on Facebook, posing with his latest catch or texting pictures of his plate with fish, french fries and cole slaw. Tim developed many lifelong friendships wherever he was. The "fellas on 73rd Street" in Chicago and many others in Tennessee, Arkansas and Alabama. And he loved his family. Tim would call his brothers, sisters, aunts and cousins just to say "I love you." Tim loved old school music and he loved to dance. He was going to have a good time whether anyone else did or not. His "life of the party" spirit will surely be missed. He is preceded in death by his parents and grandparents, Marshall C. Nolden and Ethel Wilson Nolden, William Cheeks, Luther Guin and Beaulah Wilson Cheeks Guin; oldest brother, Leon Nolden, Jr.; nephew, Charles Tobias (Soonie) Nolden; brother in love, Danny Love; sister in love, Gloria Diane Nolden.
