CARY, Ill. — Timmothy Etters, a longtime muralist whose work adorns many Chicago areas schools, has died at age 52. A funeral home in suburban Cary says his funeral is Sunday. His obituary says he died earlier this month. Etters painted more than 300 murals. A cancer survivor, he was also color blind. According to his website biography, he grew up in suburban Chicago and knew he wanted to be an artist as a young boy. His wife Vicki Etters tells the Chicago Tribune he made art a “lifetime career” and the reason was because he loved people.
