So sorry to hear about the passing of Tim, I new him as a kid and all his brother and Mary is sister. Took many bike trips out to 6 mile corner where his parents had a gas station. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.

Back in the 70's we were very good friends. After moving on to our adult lives, our paths never crossed again but I remembered those good times together and always thought we'd connect someday and see that each other's lives turned out just fine. From what I read here, that part certainly is true for Tim. My sympathies and condolences to his loved ones - he was a very good person, the best of friends. May Tim's soul rest in Peace!

I just want the Family to know how Sad and Sorry I am about the passing of Tim
Him and I have so much History it's so hard to believe that he is gone.

He used to pick me up after school starting way back when I was only 14 years old. We would just drive around and talk, I actually lost a job because I decided I would rather ride around with him instead if going to work.
Back in the day we used to do a lot of Haunted House Hunting- that was a lot of fun
I have so so many memories I could share but there isn't enough room here, I could probably write a book

Caleb and Zach - I feel so bad for you boys and the Grandkids- just know I'll be thinking about you both.
I was with your Dad a lot when you boys were younger

Again I'm so Sorry for your Loss
