  • Tim, I am sure going to miss you and was glad to call you my friend. I remember when I first met you you delivered pizza for PJ’s pizza I think I was 12 years old. From the first moment Betty saw you she was head over heals! Thirty six years later and all of us are still friends, that is a real testament! I’m so glad you are with God now because I know your pain was becoming all consuming and now your pain is gone. Although our hearts are grieving over the loss of your presence, I know we will all be together again so until God calls us home find the best fishing holes, start building a mud running truck, and be ready to throw us a huge party when we arrive!

All the boys played baseball or football or basketball up at the school..Tim always had a smile on his face when ever you seen him. Always a bit shy but always friendly n polite.

  • My thoughts and prayers to you all💔I pray you are given the strength and comfort needed at this time 🙏
