Timothy A. Brenenstuhl


SARATOGA SPRINGS — It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Saratoga Springs, NY native Timothy A. Brenenstuhl. He passed away peacefully while surrounded by family on February 19, 2024 after experiencing an accident in his home two weeks prior. Tim was 40 years of age.

Tim graduated from Saratoga Springs High School in 2001 before earning a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Vermont. It was there that he met his future wife, Sophia Green, and together the couple moved to Los Angeles after graduation. Their work soon took them to Thailand where they spent nearly a year on the set of the 2006 film “Rescue Dawn.” After returning to California, Tim stayed in the film industry for a time, continuing to work closely with Sophie’s parents, Patricia Green and the late Gerald Green, but ultimately chose to pursue opportunities in his original field of study. He worked for a few different landscape architecture firms in the area before starting his own company, TAB Design, which focused on the design, installation, and maintenance of unique landscape projects in southern California. In 2012, Tim earned his Master’s in Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture from UCLA, and the experience further amplified his interest in residential and commercial contracting and renovations. 

In 2021, Tim moved home to Saratoga Springs to be closer to his family and to follow his passions for craftsmanship in construction and historical home restorations. For the past three years, Tim had worked for himself and was excited to be in the middle of another project in downtown Saratoga, relishing the exhaustion that a long day of problem-solving and power tools brought him.

Tim was strong willed and curmudgeonly at times, but he also had an enormous heart, a contagious smile, and a wonderful sense of humor. He was generous, loyal, curious, and- in his younger days- never one to miss a good party. He was clever and full to the brim with knowledge gained through all his many life experiences - he could build or fix almost anything. Reading and research were two of his favorite hobbies in recent times, but he also loved all types of outdoor recreation, classic Volkswagen vans, designing and building furniture, and music of all kinds (except smooth jazz- man, did he hate smooth jazz).

Tim is survived by his loving parents, mother Laurie Brenenstuhl and father Gary Brenenstuhl, his brother and sister-in-law Ryan and Megan Brenenstuhl and their daughter Caroline, former wife Sophia Green of Los Angeles and her family, his golden retriever Gracie, many extended family members, and countless friends near and far. 

He will be remembered for all the heart he shared with his friends and family. He truly loved each of them- and if you knew him, you knew it. He will be missed dearly.

In typical Tim fashion, there will be no formal services planned, certainly no pomp and circumstance. A celebration of life will occur later in the summer with details to be determined. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to Mary’s Haven, a program of Catholic Charities of Saratoga, Warren, and Washington Counties, which provided such comfort to Tim and his family in his final days, or to the Bethesda Episcopal Church- both of Saratoga Springs, NY.
