Timothy Reeves Hine of Ridgefield died April 7, surrounded by family, at the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, N.Y. He was 28 years old and the husband of Jessica Hine.

Mr. Hine died from injuries sustained in an one-car accident in lower Westchester County April 3 after he apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

“Tim and Jess shared a 14-year love of life together which found them out in nature, rock climbing, hiking, and skiing,” the family said. “Tim was full of life and loved going on adventures with Jess, his family, and friends. He was kind, compassionate, strong, and wise beyond his years.”

Mr. Hine was a graduate of Pomperaug Regional High School and Central Connecticut State University.

He is survived by his father and mother, Paul and Leslie Hine of Southbury; a sister Lisa Hine; sister and brother-in-law Sarah and John Spear; brother-in-law Alex Santopietro; and father and mother-in-law Edmund and Jane Santopietro; his maternal grandmother, Marie Hawes of Redding, his aunts and uncles, Lyle Hawes of West Haven, Richard R. Hine of New Britain, Pam and Kevin Kohn of Newtown, Mary Michals of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, and Amy and Scott Spencer of Winston-Salem, N.C., as well as many cousins.

A memorial service celebrating his life will be held on Friday, April 19, at 4 p.m. at Walnut Hill Community Church 156 Walnut Hill Road, Bethel.
