May 21, 1960 — December 19, 2022

Evergreen, Colorado


Timothy Gerald O’Neill, 62, passed away on Monday, Dec. 19, 2022, in Evergreen, Colo.

Timothy (“Tim”) was born on May 21, 1960, to parents Gerald Thomas O’Neill and JoAnn M. O’Neill. Tim devoted his life to his family and an accomplished career in litigation. A managing partner of Snell & Wilmer’s Denver office and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee from 2000 to 2016, his national litigation practice focused on complex business litigation, commercial disputes, and major product liability tort litigation. A fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers since 2009, Tim joined the Colorado State Committee from 2014 to 2018 and the Jury Committee from 2018 to 2022. Earning many professional recognitions and awards throughout his career, Tim was also an active member of his community, serving the Advisory Board of the Colorado Civil Justice League, working with young lawyers through the Colorado Attorney Mentor Program and volunteering with the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver.

Tim spent his free time with his family and on the water, when possible. Harboring a deep love of the ocean, Tim earned a skipper license and captained the family’s boat, Freedom, every chance he could.

Tim is survived by his loving wife, Monique O’Neill; children, Chelsea (Travis) Coe, Quinn O’Neill and Abigail O’Neill; grandson, Wyatt Coe; stepmother, Jane Kannell-O’Neill; sisters, Peggy (Larry) Brizgis, Anne (Joe) Miller, Mary O’Neill (Carl Erickson), Kathy (Paul) Paese and Amanda Reid O’Neill (Jerry Reid); brother, Christopher O’Neill; and many beloved nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents.
