My uncle Tim. How I miss you so much. So many things you were right on about. I wish you were here to see them with me. I miss you helping me and teaching me to be better with carpentry on my house. You would be proud where it's at now. I miss your sense of humor on the explorer. It took me a year before I could drive it again. I miss you and love you.

Tim and my son Robert became lifelong friends when Tim moved next door at about age 7. He and Bob were inseparable and spent most if their time together growing up. His mom and I became best friends .Tim was always there for dinners and celebrations. Will always have a special place in my heart. AudreyZ.

Tim grew up next door to me. He was my big brothers best friend since he was 6 yrs old. Needless to say he was like a family member to the rest of us. Tim and Robert were always so full of energy and that energy was so often misdirected. As a result they created a lifetime of humorous events together. Some of these events are now stories from their youth that will be passed on from one generation to the next. When Robert shares some of their boyhood antics with my daughters he leaves them in tears from laughter. I will always remember Tim as the young, happy boy I grew up next door to. He brought a lot of joy to many people.

Like my sister Jolie said on of my memories of uncle Tim was him and my dad calling eachother "son". I will always remember hanging out with him and his wife Tammy. Weekends at their house. I also remember that he took fast showers like 5 minute ones. so when ever we say "Take a Tim" we all knew what that ment. Uncle Tim you will be missed. I love you. I am happy you are reunited with Tammy and your baby girl. Until we meet again. Love, Sally Anne

Some of my earliest memories are of my dads "son". Well actually, If you asked Tim, my dad was Tim's "son". This subject of who was who's "son" one that brought my dad and Tim much enjoyment at my expense. Back and forth they'd say,"He's my son". It took me years to understand that this was a term of endearment between my dad and his oldest friend. When my dad called and told me that he lost his oldest "son", I knew he was telling me that Uncle Tim had passed away. I am deeply sadden to know that I will not be seeing Timmy Joe again on this side of heaven but I rejoice in the knowing of our Lords great love and promises. Tim no longer has the burdens of this world and sorrow is no more. May he ever rest at peace. With Love, Jojo
