Timers in SWEPs

If I have a timer in a SWEP shared.lua, the timer starts and the player dies/leaves/loses his swep, will the timer be stopped?
I’m not sure if I have to send timer to server first, to make sure it’s run, even if the player loses his swep.

timer.Create works even if the weapon is removed.
