Tim was a proud Revere native, who was born & raised in Revere & was an alumnus of Revere High School, Class of 1976. During his time in high school, he was a Basketball standout. His size allowed him to be a dominant player for the high school during his 4 years there. His stature was intimidating but he was the quintessential “Gentle Giant”. His mild personality and good heart were known by all who knew him. For most of Tim’s working career, he worked as a courier, for himself. Tim was also seen frequently walking around the City of Revere with his pal, Schultzie. He will always be remembered as a friend that you could always rely on.

He is the beloved son of the late John J. Countie & Mary E. (Roberts) Countie. Loving & faithful longtime companion of the late Janet M. Sullivan. Dear brother of John T. Countie & his wife Karen of Merrimac, MA., Richard M. & his wife Ping of New Zealand, Edmund A. Countie of Lynn & Kerry S. Countie & wife Patricia of Londonderry, NH.

    In 2012 I got new years eve tickets for my family & in-laws and had an extra ticket for Tim who was a brother to me since 1970. So they sat us in a booth for 6 and The Count couldn’t fit. He wiggles the table back and forth until it broke from the floor. They had to move us to another table with loose chairs. In the early 1980’s, He and I used to drive around to different bars and clubs raising hell, haha. The Palace, John Martin’s Manor which was the old Valleys Steakhouse on Route 1, August Moon, Harbor House and even The Cabaret where he took on 5 bikers. He told me “go start the car, I’ll be right out.” I love you and miss you my brother…..

    Tim Countie was from the old School Street neighborhood. He was a mountain of man with a kind heart. Like Clarence said: “A man leaves an awfully big hole when he is not around.”

    Tim to me was the sweetest man I ever knew. We dated in high school and he always was such a gentleman. I will always remember how he left a greeting card on my car to surprise me. My fo dest memory was when he took a flight to Florida to take me out for dinner. God received an angel when Tim left this earth. My sympathy goes out to his family.
