What a beautiful tribute to such a wonderful man! These pictures tell the tale of Tim's life that was well-lived with love, family, friends, hobbies and work that were all so important to Tim. "Uncle Tim" to our girls and best friend of Johnny's has been a fun-loving, honest, generous, and loving presence in our lives for so long. We are so very grateful for getting to be a part of his life. We love you Ginny, Ty, Suzy, and Steve and are praying for God's peace to surround you and all of your families.

Tim will always be one of the best men I ever came to know. I'll always remember the good times had hunting and especially fishing with him. No one better to spend time with at the camp or on the boat.

May he rest in peace.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Tim once for a week. He and Ginny welcomed me, Josh and Ben into their beach home. In that short amount of time, I was renamed 'Robyn Anne', learned to put pepper on cantaloupe, went to Florida for the first time (on my birthday!) and felt more at home than I ever expected. I am sad we didn't get to meet again, Tim, but I will hold these memories forever.
All my love to the Bragg family-

There is no one memory but many over the years. Although quite a bit older Tim was the typical big brother. Always a protector and concerned about my well being. A couple days before my wedding he ask me to go for a walk. On that walk he asked if I was happy and said, "you can back out, if this is not what you want. It's not to late". That big brother concern.
We both liked so many of the same things; fishing, being on the water, being outdoors, old cars, home cooking and fresh veggies.
I wish there could have been more fishing trips (time together) but grateful for what time I had. Our time at OB this last spring will be a special memory.
I love you big brother and will miss you dearly ❤.

It was my privilege to have known Tim even though it was for a short time.
I was introduced to Tim through his good friend, Gene Ernest and did business with him, buying cars etc.

Tim was always quick and proud to talk about his time with the seabees. Myself, being family, but also being much younger, I never knew him well, but I know he went far in life and reached many milestones. One of the seabee mottos is "Can Do", I believe Tim exemplified the motto in every respect.

Crossing the Bar
BY ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

Mr. Tim always made me think he was mad but he wasn't. He loved to tease and agrivate, but if he didn't like you he wouldn't do it. I will truly miss him!!!
