Uncle Tim was my favorite uncle growing up. I still remember the color changing Barbie he got me, and spending hours talking growing up. He was always around for me as a kid. He loved Mackenzie and always did his best to do right by her and I always respected that. He will be missed.

Starting with pack 139 baseball games and CYO basketball games when we were kids to more recently playing golf on the weekends I’ve had a great time with my friend Tim, I’m going to miss his competitive spirit and his sense of humor that goes unmatched,

Never thought I'd be doing this right now. How do you sum up a lifetime together. We were not just siblings we were friends while growing up. We hung out together for much of our childhood and well into our teens. We had our differences but we always had each other's back. I could always count on him to be there if I needed him. We grew apart in later years but I still knew he would be there for me if I needed him. Tim loved his MVP more then anything. She was his pride and joy. I am sure he is up there with our parents looking down on his family and friends with pride. I'm gonna miss you bro! Just so you know, this sucks!

Tim, you were my brutha from another mutha. We have been friends for over 38 years and I will cherish every single one of them. The memories are too long to list but we’ve been there for each other for ALL our life events. Golf will never be the same without you and yesterday was no exception. It was boring, lonely, and empty without you there. It sucked. Be advised, though. We wrote you down for a 144. That’s a terrible score. You know the rules. Already people have chimed in about your personality and they were all spot on. You were definitely an incredible person and as much as Tim loved golf, there’s nothing in this world he loved more than his MVP. His car came in a distant third. It was a pleasure being your friend and knowing your family, including both your parents. Hopefully, you’re with them now watching down at what happens next. I Miss you, man.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Little Brother, I'm going to miss you in this world and hopefully to see you in the next world. I remember the funny stuff we used to get into trouble at home when we were younger. And I also remember the stupid stuff we did together when we got older. Man, you really left memories for all of my kids and I'm going to miss you a lot. Love, Steve

Tim came into my life several years ago as the longtime childhood friend to my boyfriend, Matt, along with another childhood friend, Mike. We spent many a summer Saturday afternoon together after the guys went golfing and met for lunch and laughs. Tim had such a great personality, unmatched wit and devilish humor that I looked forward to seeing him, knowing I was going to have fun and giggles every time. We became a close group of friends and shared a lot about life and growing old, many good times and some rough times. He loved talking about his daughter and how proud he was of her and her accomplishments. Our Saturday golf afternoons will never be the same. You will be missed Tim ❤️

While I became distant from the family later in life, he was a strong male figure in my life at an early age. Being 12 years old when I was born, we related a little and could get on the same level on some things. I remember sleeping over at his house on weekends, playing Super Nintendo all night. I remember him absolutely creaming me in Street Fighter 2, to the point I was bawling and carrying on. But it’s one of my most cherished memories of uncle Tim. And one that I appreciate so much in my adult life. Even to this day, I might cry and whine but I get through it and get it done. I can only imagine that that influence helped shape me into the tenacious person I am today. He also saw something in me. At around age 11, I was super into the new rap sound. Snoop Dogg, 2Pac etc. Well I discovered Metallica at that age and a couple years later, he sat me down with his red Kramer guitar and showed me the first few notes of the song “One”. He was so impressed with how fast I picked it up that he gifted me that guitar. We jammed and talked music quite a bit over the years and without him sitting me down that night, I likely never would have picked it up. I have so many more memories, I might have to write another comment. I’ll miss you uncle Tim. Thanks for a life of memories ♥️💔♥️
