Timothy P. Scanlon, 93, of Plainville, passed away peacefully on Monday February 28, 2022.  He was the husband of Janet (Rodier) Scanlon, with whom he shared 41 years of marriage.

Born in Lawrence, MA on October 17, 1928, he was one of four children to the late Patrick and Mary (Walsh) Scanlon.  Raised and educated in Lowell, he was a 1950 graduate of Northeastern University in Boston.  Tim enlisted in U.S. Army the following year, proudly serving his country for two years during the Korean Conflict.  Following his honorable discharge from the Army, he accepted a position with the FBI, working in Washington, DC before moving to Connecticut in 1960.  He enjoyed all of the outdoor activities that New England had to offer, including fishing and target shooting, and made frequent visits to Cabela’s, adding to his impressive gun collection.  Tim retired from Amodio / North American Van lines after enjoying close to 40 years on the open road.  A voracious reader, Tim was always looking to expand his already vast amount of knowledge, and was never shy to share his thoughts and fun facts on topics that he learned about.  Remembered for his sense of humor and willingness to share a joke or story with anyone nearby, Tim will be missed dearly, leaving his family with many cherished memories.

In addition to his wife Janet, he leaves his daughter Pamela Denis and her partner Tom Jenkins; his step-children Jim Tufts and his wife Christina and Jerrilyn Ciotto and her husband Robert; his sister Patricia Lyons; his grandchildren, Mack Litke, his wife Lyndsey and their children Brooks and Blayke, Brett Litke and his fiancée Caitlyn Shaw; Robert Ciotto, Jr. his fiancée Kim and their daughter Reighley, Kevin Ciotto and Justin Ciotto; along with many nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his first wife, Virginia; his brother Thomas and his sister Margaret Brien.

A graveside service with military honors will be held and announced in the spring.  The staff at Plainville Funeral Home extends their gratitude to the Scanlon family for their trust.  For future service information and online expressions of sympathy, please visit
