McGaughey, Timothy "Tim" Jame, 56, of West Point, CA, passed away Thursday, July 10, 2014. He was born in China Lake, CA on April 12, 1958 to Ruth Blanche (DeLand) and the late William Joseph McGaughey. He grew up in Tustin, CA. Tim married Lisa Ann Mesa on February 20, 2004 in Las Vegas; the two would move to West Point, CA in 2011 and create their little piece of paradise. Tim's design techniques and creativity span the globe and their home, which will be featured in Country Living and French Country. Tim began his artistic career in his late teens, creating his own art design in different mediums, designing furniture and various art pieces; he worked with Disney as a theme decorator, traveling to Japan and Paris. Tim also enjoyed travels to New Zealand and Australia. Tim's family would say his artistic niche was turning the ordinary into extraordinary by using reclaimed and repurposed materials and the nature he loved so dearly.
