Tim was a co worker and great friend. He always talked about his lovely nieces.
He passed away, way to soon and I will miss his friendship.
Seems like he really just started his life on his own. So sad

My thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time. Tim and I sat beside each other for many years at the library. He could always make me laugh. Loved to sing while he worked. Drove the boss crazy. He was a great co-worker, friend and uncle. Always talked about his nieces. Tim was a kind soul who put others ahead of himself. Rest In Peace Tim.

My deepest condolences to you and your girls. I spent a lot of time with Tim at work and we were close buddies. We shared a lot and my life without him will not be the same. I’ll miss Tim and will think of him as I go through life. He brought alot to the table with his generosity, courage and integrity. His biggest love was his three nieces and Chad’s two girls. I don’t know how many conversations we had that circled around one or all of them. They were his sunshine. I’ll miss him and I hope he Rest In Peace.
