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; mother, Lillian Overstreet, Mulberry; brother, Tannis Overstreet, Sebring; companion, Marian Motley, Bartow; and one grandson.

Services: Saturday, June 28, 2003 at 11 a.m. from First Born Church of the Living God, 502 Fourth St. S.E., Mulberry.
