Timothy J. Moellering , 53, of Berkeley, passed away on January 18, 2011. Tim was born in Chicago on September 7, 1957, but lived in Berkeley since the age of 2. 

He is survived by his mother, Clarice; brothers Dan, Toby and Aaron; nephews Matthew and Raymond; niece Wendy; and Santiago and Patrick Rizzo whom he helped raise. Tim graduated from Concordia HS (Oakland) in 1975 and from UC Berkeley (B.A. History) in 1979. 

Tim had been a teacher and coach at Berkeley High School and Willard Middle School for the past 30 years. Other than teaching and coaching, his greatest passions were listening to his massive collection of music, concerts, and rooting passionately for the SF Giants and Cal Bears. He will be greatly missed by his family and wide circle of friends. 

A memorial service, open to everyone, will be held on Saturday, Jan. 29, at the Willard Middle School Auditorium, starting at 12:30pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to "First Step" BHS Counselors' Scholarship Fund or the Berkeley Free Clinic.
