Corporal Timothy William Romei was born on March 11, 1968, in Poughkeepsie, New York. He moved to California with his family in 1980 and graduated in 1986 from Abraham Lincoln High School in Almeda, California.

He enlisted in the US Marine Corps shortly after graduation. Corporal Timothy Romei served aboard the USS Shasta and USS Caron before being assigned to the USS Okinawa, which deployed to the Persian Gulf to provide support during Operation Desert Storm/Desert Shield and the Gulf War.

On October 8, 1990, conducting night missions, the UH-1 he was in collided with another over the Persian Gulf.

Corporal Timothy Romei is still unrecovered. He is remembered at the San Francisco National Cemetery.
