Thomas “Tim” Armstrong died peacefully at South Lake Hospital on October 14, 2019 in Clermont, FL at the age of 79.

Tim is survived by his wife, Cynthia of Clermont, FL; children, Tony Rose of Harper’s Ferry, WV, Julie Daugehty of Monroe, NC, Shane Rose of Clermont, FL, and Scott Armstrong of Charlotte, NC; brother, Richard “Dick” Armstrong of Bristol, IN; seven grandchildren, Joshua & Alyssa Daughety, Benen & Gavin Rose, and Lange, Gracie, & Sam Armstrong; along with eight nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his brother, John “Jack” Armstrong of Michigan City, IN.

Tim was born on March 9, 1940 in Michigan City, IN to Thomas & Corine Armstrong.  He graduated from Indiana University in 1962 with a degree in Marketing.  He joined the United States Air Force directly after graduation, was released from active duty in 1966, and was honorably discharged in 1972 as First Lieutenant.   

Tim, the consummate salesman, excelled as a sales representative in the picture frame industry traveling throughout the southeast United States where he made many lasting friendships with customers and colleagues wherever he went.  He was proud to be a Hoosier, an IU graduate, and a serviceman, but he was especially proud to be a husband, father, brother, uncle, and grandfather.  Fun-loving and always a positive outlook, Tim relished taking time to enjoy the beauty of flowers, clouds, and rain.  He will be deeply missed by those whose lives he touched. 

A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 1, 2019 at 10:30 AM at Woodlands Lutheran Church in Montverde, FL.  A ceremony with full military honors will be held directly after the service at Florida National Cemetery – Bushnell promptly at 1:30 PM.   All are welcome to attend and celebrate Tim’s life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Gary Sinise Foundation in Thomas Armstrong’s name at  The family would like to thank caregivers Hilda, Lisa, Jennifer, and Gloria for their loving care and dedication.
