Timothy P. Masterson DDS peacefully passed away on July 25, 2023 surrounded by his loving family.
Born on July 21, 1950 in Denver, CO, he was the sole practitioner of his popular Family Dental Practice in Centennial, CO for nearly 42 years.
He was a graduate of Regis Jesuit High School ('68) and went on to earn a Bachelor's degree in Biology at Creighton University ('72). There he met his loving wife of 49 years, Jane Harrington Masterson. He then went on to the Creighton University School of Dentistry where he earned his DDS in 1977.
He served as 1st Lieutenant in the Army, followed by the Reserves until 1980. A member of the Colorado and American Dental Association since 1977, he was the founding Board Member for CDA Malpractice Insurance Trust, served as a delegate for the CDA, and donated dental work for the underserved with the Colorado Mission of Mercy, Women in Need Organization, local preschools and elementary schools.
Throughout his long career he performed his profession with empathy, enjoyment, and incredible patient care. It was always his goal to treat each and every patient with compassion and respect and to always perform the absolute best work possible. His hobbies included skiing, biking, golf, tennis, hiking and spending weekends with his family in the mountains and whenever possible on the beach. He was a walking encyclopedia and made history come alive as he traveled the world with his family. Most importantly, he had an enthusiasm for life with a love for learning and meeting new people, he made a connection with everyone he came in contact with. He lived his Catholic faith daily in his giving to others and his legacy of a faith based education he provided for his sons. He always said it was the foundation for life.
He was the son of Viola and Thomas Masterson (of blessed memory), and is survived by his wife Jane, his three wonderful sons, Sean (wife Colleen) CA, Ryan (husband Lucas) NY, Devin (wife Genna) CO, and two beautiful grandchildren, Ethan and Finnegan, CA. He is also survived by siblings; Diane Phillips, Jim Masterson, Kate Masterson and Phil Masterson; numerous nieces, nephews and too many friends to count. Tim had a million dollar smile, a twinkle in his eye, and the kind of laugh and humor that made life fun!
Services will be held Thursday, August 17th, 12:00 PM at St Thomas More Catholic Church. Reception to follow at 1:30PM.
