Meet Timothy Armstrong, Carlton Senior Living spotlight resident – Timothy was born in 1955 in Sacramento, California. He was raised by mother, Dorothy Meadows, and stepfather, Robert Meadows. He has a stepsister, a stepbrother and two half-brothers named Tony and John. Timothy was previously married to Elizabeth and has two stepchildren, Scott and Tim. He also has three granddaughters. Prior to his retirement, Timothy was employed as an audiologist for seven years at Sutter Hearing Speech Center. He later became the owner and operator of American River Hearing, where he worked for 25 years.
Throughout his lifetime Timothy traveled through most of the United States and also to Mexico many times. His favorite hobby is scuba diving and he has traveled as far as Mexico and Hawaii to scuba dive. One of his most memorable scuba diving experiences was finding himself face-to-face with eight blue sharks. Another exciting moment was when he saw a whale shark and, when he last went night diving in Hawaii, he saw a humongous whale that was about 20 feet long.
When asked about his most notable accomplishment, Timothy names becoming a professional audiologist. His philosophy on life is to “treat others as you would like to be treated,” an idea that was passed down to him by his grandparents. The person Timothy admires the most was his grandfather who was a professional baseball player and an aerospace machinist.
Timothy’s favorite Carlton activity is eating, because the food at Carlton Senior Living Sacramento is so good! He loves eating fish, catfish in particular. His favorite movie is “Forrest Gump” and his favorite sports teams are the San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants. Having traveled all over the United States, he names Boston as his favorite city because of the nice people, great good and the beautiful downtown area.
