MULBERRY -- Bicycling, jazz music, singing
and playing the piano were just a few things that Mr.
Timothy "Tim" Overstreet enjoyed doing.
The lab technician died Saturday, June 21, 2003 at
Lakeland Regional Medical Center after being struck by
lightning. He was 41.
"He was so sociable," said his sister, Karen
Overstreet of Lakeland. "Out of my family, he was
more sociable than anybody else."
Born in Bartow on Feb. 7, 1962, he moved to Mulberry at a
very young age, attending Mulberry schools, elementary
through high school.
After serving one term in the Navy, he started a career
as a lab technician, working for various mines and
building projects around the state.
"He was working for different companies that do soil
samples like if they were going to build some kind of
building, he would do the analysis on the soil,"
said his father, Roosevelt Overstreet of Mulberry. He
most recently was working in Tampa.
He attended First Born Church of the Living God.
In addition to his sister and father, Mr. Overstreet is
survived by his daughter, Mjari Overstreet, Mulberry;
